I'm in love with my caaaar...
Gotta feel for my auto-mo-bile...
Look at it. Isn't it pretty?
Click it. It gets bigger.
That is my new ninja car, a 2007 Saturn Aura. I bought it on Saturday (Terri's birthday!) and I love it beyond all measure. It's my new boyfriend.
To bust out with the biggest cliché ever - it's a sweet ride.
I got the XE base model with the preferred package (8-way power adjustable driver's seat, heated outside mirrors, wheel-mounted stereo controls) and tinted windows. The stereo controls on the wheel are awesome - I was pretty sure I'd like them (I got the package mostly for the heated mirrors; they're invaluable), but they are so, so convenient.
The stereo does that weird thing where it adjusts the volume based on outside noise, but I'm probably going to turn the option off, because it's messing with my head.
From the front and back:
Yesterday when I was taking photos I noticed something so freakin' cool. In my L200 I was always somehow pushing the driver's side floor mat up underneath the brake/gas pedal. It was, how do they say? ANNOYING.
When I was taking photos of the Aura's interior I noticed a black circle in front of the driver's seat on the floor. After a brief freakout that I had already marred the carpet, I more closely inspected things and saw this:
There is a HOOK on the FLOOR that attaches to a GROMMET on the MAT which HOLDS THE MAT IN PLACE!!1one
Coolest! car! ever!
*hugs ninja car*
