Grace in Small Things: Part 3 of 365

1. The smell of a new car

2. Voraciously reading the manual to your new car

3. Being able to FINALLY play your extensive MP3 collection in your new car

4. Handsfree phone conversations in your new car

5. The sun shining through a panoramic sunroof in your new car

(Can you guess what I did yesterday?)

Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in 365 days of Grace in Small Things.

    I didn’t get a Tiguan, although they were super fun. I ended up buying an X3 and I luuurrrve it. I think I shall live in it forever. ;)

    I love my X5 too! Although mine no longer has that lovely new car smell. Oh, and the hands free phone thing isn’t working. :(

    But iDrive? Do you get it yet? Also, I too am reveling in the joys of Bluetooth.

    I don’t even know what iDrive is! I’ll get back to you after I finish my bluetooth/iPhone/iPod biznass

    I’m interested in hearing about this X3 – I’m getting a new car within the next 3 months or so and the X3, the Tiguan, and the Saab 9-7x are on my list.

    Oh, New Car Day is THE BEST. Enjoy!

    (And Rhi, we just finished our lease with the Saab 9-7x; it was a great SUV, but REALLY drives like the behemoth that it is…it’s not car-like at all. Be ye warned!)

    So jealous of your new car! I took a road trip to MN a few months back and it had a hookup for my iPod and I was like MUST GET NEW CAR NOW!

    But then I remembered I park on the street and I’m not getting a new car until I have a garage attached to a house. Which essentially means never.

    Congrats on the new car. Now you just need to post pics of your new baby X3 for your blogging pals to see.
