    Thanks eh! I'm supposed to pick it up Saturday but I'm getting impatient. It's only 30 mins away but everything takes longer with kids.
    I kinda miss being able to go look at a car 3hrs away after work and get home at midnight and not actually knowing exactly what I bought til the next morning.

    Late to the party as usual, eh?

    That's a perfect nickname for it though.

    Congrats!

    The nicest car in the fleet can't be called "trash", even as a joke.

    Nice car, nice sticker too.

    How much can a Rostra kit go for? Selling that would pay for an OEM cruise kit and a sticker or two.

    I'm not sure what they go for? I was kinda disappointed when I saw it had aftermarket cruise but it works.
    The car has the base model steering wheel so I'd need a new steering wheel, cruise and bluetooth switches, clockspring?, brake switch, and maybe wiring from bottom of steering column to clock spring if it's not there already. Are the airbags the same from plain jane wheel to the ones with the buttons? Then buy a tool to play with the etacs, then learn how to use it. Sounds like more work and time sourcing parts than I'm willing to do.

    I managed to get the cruise to work within seconds even though I couldn't see the switch so good enough for me. Bluetooth would be nice but I rarely talk on the phone when driving or walk and chew gum.

    The seller seems decent and not a flake, I did a little googling before I even looked at it to see if he could have been a crack head, car dealer or if there where any pictures of the car on it's roof. I offered to pay by e transfer then pick it up whenever he receives the money but the guy is either worried about being scammed, wan'ts a selfie with a wad of cash or doesn't want "someone" knowing what the car sold for? I could be wrong but wouldn't I be the only one taking the risk paying by e-transfer, figured it was the same as cash? I was trying to avoid going to the bank, last time I took out over $5000 the bank was choked that I didn't call ahead and I was worried about getting jumped in the parking lot lol.

    But it sure is fun carrying that much cash.
