So yesterday was a pretty big decision day. I made a pretty hard decision, and Lorelei went to a new home. With everything that still needed my attention, and with a new job that will soon require a bit more commute time, I made the call that the e30 wasn't cut out to be the daily commuter, and I was frustrated enough to not want to make any further spends for the car. I already have a new daily, and I'm just smitten with her.

I'd like to introduce Maria, a 2017 VW Golf R. She had a whopping 6 miles on her before I took delivery yesterday afternoon at 1pm.

Aww... sorry to hear about having to give up Lorelei.

But that is a nice looking Golf... I'd have no issues going back to a VW.

Passing the e30 to a new owner was a difficult decision to make, but... The new owner is a fantastic guy, and I'm super excited to watch his progress with the car. We've become friends, and I couldn't be happier that I sold it to who I did. And then every time I think I'm getting sad and I'm driving the R, I just downshift and add gas. The instantaneous-ness of "GOING FASTER NAOW!!!" just makes me giggle. I can't help it. The R is a fantastic car, and I love it.

6sp manual. The only way to go for me.
