Congrats! How bout some more pics? I'd like to see a side view. What rims do you have? Did you upgrade to the 18"? Doesn't look like you went with the front/side and rear spoiler kit? I'm stuck between the silver and the white, well maybe the gray too. Please tell us what options you got....DSG????? Cheers

Me also! I stand on the porch and stare at it with happiness.

I also smile every time the traffic control light turns green for me on the tight corner onramp. 0-70, hard right, then 70-5 in about 8 seconds, but those 8 seconds were exhilarating. :)

As a non-Christian, I object to the manger scene in the background of one of the pictures!

Don't know if this got national news, but we just had a run in like this at the Seattle airport. A rabbi asked if they would put up a menorah next to the christmas trees, so they took down the xmas trees instead. Oy vey. They ultimately put them back and said they'd figure it out next year.

Point is, you better photoshop in a kinara and a menorah, or you'll have to take the pics down. ;D

That made North American news, I even read about it.

There was also a case in an Ontario courthouse where a judge asked for the tree in the foyer (or was it infront?) removed.

I understand public nativity scenes being religio-centric and agree that they have no place in a secular cosmopolitan society but I don't see what a pine tree has to do with the birth of Jesus. If you traced back the roots of it, it probably stems back to germanic pagan "yule" traditions anyway, if not to earlier roman-pagan traditions (Dec. 25th originally was a holiday in commemoration of Saturn and in later Roman times celebrated the rebirth of the unconquered sun--hence it is a few days after solstice).

Good job on doing your research. I'm glad not all people are blinded by the today's corporate plans for world domination (sarcasm on the domination part). But I'm a Christian, but I don't celebrate Christmas. or any other pagan originating holidays (which are probably most of them). Hahaha, but to each their own.

And I'm an atheist and I celebrate Christmas. How about that?
