The wait is killing me! Apparently it was supposed to be in almost two weeks ago, but it seems like they are taking their sweet time! It's funny because I went in with the intention of having to wait months for this car (I told them no substitutes), but surprisingly the dealer had a VIN for the exact model and colour that I wanted.

I'll be taking plenty of pictures when it does get here, but for now I'll just ogle all of yours. :p

Congrats on the buy KSean, and welcome to the forum. Don't think anyone here will mind you ogleing their Koups. Hope you get yours soon. That's a nice looking dog by the way.

Thanks everyone, and yeah I'm from Canada. I didn't know that you guys don't have the sx in white. :( I don't know much about the differences between the Canadian and US models, but I bet you guys have stuff that we're pining for on this side of the border!

Good news, though! It actually just arrived, haha! They've got to do a few things to it first, I'm gonna guess maybe a block heater or daytime running lights, but it should be ready to go in a few days! I was really hoping for this weekend, but at least I know it's here in the city.

Now I'm not sure who's gonna be spoiled more, the dog or the car. ;)

Finally picked her up yesterday! I was more nervous than excited since it's been a LONG while since I've driven a manual (much less a brand new car) and I didn't want to mess her up five seconds after driving off the lot.

In fact, I picked up one of those "Novice Driver" signs to stick in the back window so people don't get on my ass if I stall out at a light. ;) Which I did a couple times, but I think I'm good now.

Pics to come later today, going out for yet another spin!

Haha, she'd better like it, the backseat is all for her. Though I'm gonna need to throw a blanket or something on it when I have to cart her around.
That is a great idea and what I do. I have a ~90 lb collie mix and he does pretty well in the back sit. I am still paranoid about the leather getting torn by his claws. Congrats on the purchase and welcome!

Finally got a decent phone with a decent camera, so now I can take decent pictures. Still doesn't do the car justice. Can't believe I've had it for a month now, I'm still so excited over it!

I was thinking about it at first, but now I'm not so sure. My night vision is pretty crappy, so I might just leave it as is. We'll see! :D
