Worth waiting for... (in Off-topic)

It took some time, but I finally got my new car. Same color and model as this one (except different wheels and roof rails):

I ordered this car back in March and got the keys for it this Wednesday.

"Ow and the new Ford mondeo released in
europe has a 7 month delivery time on it"

I was close :)

Great looking machine, I wanted that one too. But the 7 months of waiting was too much.

really? a ford?

During the 11 months I'm working for my current employer, I've been through 5 temporary cars: Audi A3, Skoda Octavia, Opel Vectra, Volvo C30 and Volkswagen Touran. Finally a car I can keep (for a year or 2...).
Out of those 5 temporary cars, I only would have considered the Audi A3.

More a Volvo than a Ford, novice, unless you think anything Ford touches turns to crap? I know several people who have Mazdas and love them, for example...

Anyway, looks like a sweet ride, and if you're happy with it, that's all that matters!

Interesting, Mirick.

Very nice looking machine bart. I'm sure you'll enjoy it a great deal!
