Picking Up The New Car

Today was an exciting day. Not only did I made it into the July issue of BC Business magazine but I got to pick up my new family car. Our old Acura TL was coming up on four years and that’s about the longest I keep a car. We searched high and low for a replacement to the trusted family mover but in end, we got another Acura TL. One of the deciding factor that kept me as an Acura customer was the $1,500 coupon Acura sent me.

I purchased the car yesterday. The entire sales process took about ten minutes. I don’t believe in spending hours fighting back and forth with the sale person (at least not unless I feel like it). Sarah and I went into Richmond Acura, told the salesman we wanted the TL, told him the price we were willing to pay and said, “We want it now!” Richmond Acura did everything we wanted except for giving the car to us on the spot. They needed some time to prepare the car for delivery.

The new TL at home in the garage next to the RSX. All my previous Acuras have been black but I wanted a white one this time around. A white car isn’t very evil but I don’t need an evil family car.

Now we just have to sell the old TL. Anyone want to buy it?
