Default Breaking news! Extra! Extra!

I bought the black and white 2016 from Carmax that I've been posting about. 2124 miles, and the credit card key is still in the factory envelope.

My mechanic looked it over and advised me not to pass it up, so I didn't.

And now, I'm going to quit typing and go driving!!

Wow, after 24 hours, my head is still buzzing with questions and puzzles on operating it all. (Of course, I did have to spend part of that time at work. There should be a national policy for carternity leave when a new baby joins the fleet!)

So, just random thoughts...

It's weird to push the trans lever forward to go backwards.

The floormats are really soft.

There's a whole hospital in that first aid kit!

You can put too much stuff in the heads-up display and it gets distracting. And white really is the best color after all.

I am wondering how to put road signs in there, though. (Contradictory to the above, I know.) They are illustrated in the manual but I don't see any directions for adding them.

The ventilating seats feel funny to me--never had those before. It almost feels like water rather than air around your tush.

Is the Jukebox thing an actual hard disk, or just chip memory?

Is there a way to remove a previously paired Bluetooth phone?

I feel like I've enrolled for a degree in K900ology...interesting but challenging!

It's weird to push the trans lever forward to go backwards. - I agree, after a few months I am still getting used to that.

The floormats are really soft. - YES, I got mats from Costco, hate to mess them up. I will take them out for "VIP" visitors, haha
