SP23 Coming my way!

G'Day,
After a weekend full of tragedies, I have some good news. Today (Sunday), we signed on the dotted line for a Titanium Grey SP23 Sedan. It's due early April! Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

Oh, and if anybody went to the David Bowie concert in Sydney, or just likes Bowie BOWIE ROCKS, THE CONCERT ROCKED!!!!!! <Insert smiley of head banging dude here>

Ahh, Manual has about 2-3 month wait, we're getting the Auto (it has tiptronic mode, yay!). And I actually should have said "SP23 coming our way", I'll be able to drive it occasionally, but we're replacing dad's car.

Hmm, I honestly don't know which one I'd prefer. The BA is one of my favourite cars, and I really enjoy fangin it around, while the SP23, well, odd said it

Oh, BTW, if anybody wants to buy a 2000 Protege, 1.6 Manual (or knows of anybody who does), let me know. Would prefer Newcaslt/Sdydney area. See For Sale forum later this week.

I think I prefer the blue in the hatch than the sedan, but each to his own. I do really like the titanium grey though ( it would be my preference for the sedan if I was getting one for myself *sigh*). Glad you're enjoying it zzomn, will let you know what I think when (if *sigh*) I get to drive it.
