happened two months ago.
I was lazy and didn't jump right on it. The car was all very driveable, so why rush it?
I don't think it helped that I only somewhat like my car. It was great for a test drive, but the more I live with it, the more I think "meh". ....and it's not great in snow.
The collision place had to provide the rental. It is 4-5 days, so what do I really care? It's taking me to work and back........and that's it. You're talking to a guy who with work travel, has rented hundreds of cars. There is no thrill. And as it turns out, they all use the same rancid-smelling cleaning solution between each customer.
As they wrapped up the paperwork, the guy goes, "you have your choice of a Santa Fe....a Mini Cooper or a....."
Mini Cooper please!, I said, I sad.
I don't know why all the excitement from me, other than it was one of the few cars I haven't driven and kind of always wanted to.
Winnie - I named it Winnie, as in Winnie Cooper - has some pep. But I'm not a fan overall. It's loud, the sound system isn't intuitive and it smells. So much so, that in 30 degree temps, I drive with the window down.
That said: it's new and different. It has power and tons of headroom. Oddly enough, I don't have that in the Benz.
