We have a car! Well, almost...

We bought a car!!

We took a test drive today, and beforehand, we had already decided that as long as it drove okay, we'd go ahead and order one today. So, the sales guy came to pick up M from work, and then they swung by to pick me up from the house, and off we went!

While we thought it was a little odd that we had to make an appointment to take a test drive, setting up the test drive was no problem at all. I called yesterday and set it up for 10am today. So, the sales guy came to pick us up this morning for our test drive - very convenient. We were able to drive it around for at least a half hour or so. We went around our neighborhood, up Jalan Tun Razak, and back through Kampung Baru. It's not like in the US, where it seems that you get to drive it around the block and that's it. All the while we discussed the car, reconfirming our conversation from the other day at the showroom about the car's features. We discussed the warranty, how insurance works, how the buying process works, etc.

So, at the end of our test drive, we had worked out all the details. So all that it took to complete the deal was 500 ringgit down to order the car, a first and second choice of color, and a copy of M's driver's license. He'll order the car and we should get it in about six weeks. We don't have to actually pay for the rest of the car until it's delivered. We're not crazy about having to wait, but like I've said in earlier posts, it's the most popular car in Malaysia, so it makes sense that there's a waiting list. Building cars for inventory isn't just commonly done here, I guess.

So here's a photo of our ordered car:

We got a car, and my People magazine came today too! Life is good today :)
