(I’ve not driven the 170 before and while I think it will prove too small, I want to be thorough in my search). But unexpected basketball tickets for this afternoon’s game would have made this a rush-rush trip. So I’ll leave it till next weekend maybe, provided the unit is still at the dealer.
It also occurred to me as I was communicating with the seller via email that if the right unit came along, I just might get impulsive and buy it. I'm not usually that spontaneous but it has happened. This doesn't worry me overmuch as I have some $ saved and I know what I'm looking for. BUT what I don't have is 1) my degree and 2) a permanent job. And I do want to sell my car both for a larger down payment and also because the van will be our 2nd car.
Plus I feel positive that when the finances and the professional life are both in order the right unit will practically drive itself to its new home.
