Haven't made a blog in a while and thought this deserves a blog post.
So yeah I just got my driving licence(B licence).
I passed the test yesterday(well technically two days ago since it's 15/08/2012 0:09 am now and I passed on 13/08/2012) but only "officially" got it today(or technically yesterday xD). I would have got it right after I passed but I needed two small pictures of myself(idk what you call those) but only had one and the place where you take them was closed which is why I had to wait a day. >_>
But that doesn't really matter, it's not like I was going anywhere.
Anyway I can now officially drive where ever I want on my own. :cool:
Except there is one tiny problem, I don't have a car yet nor can I afford one atm.:|
Time to look for a job and save up some cash.
But I can wait, it's not like I'm in some dire need of a car or anything. And I can always borrow my dad's car if allowed/possible/necessary.
When I finally buy a car it won't be an expensive one, probably around 3000 euro at most(depending on how much I have saved up when I finally decide to buy one anyway). It's a first car after all.:o
Not sure yet which one I'll buy though.
Here are some options that I have checked out:
Hyundai Tiburon - The previous model, the one that was released in 2003 I think. It looks cool and sporty which I like. Since I can't afford a Porsche 911 this might just be a good alternative. xD
But they all cost more than 3000 euro though. The cheapest one is around 3200. :/
But there are quite a few between 3000-4000 euro which I think is still ok and by the time I finally buy a car the prices might drop a little more.
Opel(Saturn?) Astra - The previous model, I think it got released around 2005. It looks like a good modern all round car.
Their price is similar to the Hyundai.
Volkswagen Golf IV - This is the car I wanted the most(for my first car) but after checking out other cars I lost a lot of interest in it lol. It's still on the list though but as a "back up" if that makes any sense.
Jaguar - I've seen a lot not of not so old ones with nice interiors but that's about the only reason why Jaguar is on the list. I highly doupt I'll buy one though because driving one would probably make me feel old(No offence to any Jaguar driver here of course. Jaguar just doesn't seem like something a young person would usually drive(imo) but they're still good cars though) and most of them come with automatic transmission(). Not even sure why it's still on the list but you never know...
Mercedes - This is one of the more likely options. I've seen a lot of not so old ones for a decent price and even the older ones(like from 1998 or 1999) look pretty cool. If the insurance and stuff isn't to high I might just end up with a Mercedes for my first car. :cool:
Bmw - Not much to say here, pretty much the same stuff as Mercedes.
So yeah those are my "main" choises for now. But that might change because you never know what the future bring...
Anyway I think that's about it for this blog.
See you guys later I guess.
