Well, I had wanted blue so the dealer searched and found a blue one for me.

I got there and saw it. It was blue with a red pin stripe and red saturn logo on the rear bumper (yuck). I was immediately turned off by the red on blue. Plus it had the XM and I didn't want it. It also had the carbon fiber dash kit which I also was not a big fan of and only single CD radio.

HOWEVER..................


They also had a black one there also with the red stripe and rear logo and it looked incredibly sharp!!! I investigate further. I find out that the black one has the stock dash, a six disc changer, no XM and the audio system speaker upgrade (six speakers and a little amp). Cool!!! I tell the sales dude I want the black. Almost the exact same price as the blue so it was cool.

0% interest for five years. I wish I had $2500 to put down on it and knock $40 off my monthly payment but I just got done paying the mortgage and putting money down was not really an option. I am happy with the zero percent (extremely)

The ride home was fun. I had my kids with me so I took it easy and leaned into VERY minimally. It's very quick even trying to take it easy. :p

I can't wait to drive to work in an hour!!! I'll be by myself checking her out and praying for no cops along the way. ;)

The center mounted gauges are gonna take some getting used to. I found myself glancing down through the steering wheel at and empty dash SEVERAL times.

She's a beautiful car. Sure, an SRT-4 may be faster but it sure as hell is ugly. And the Cobalt?.................Looks like a friggin' Honda. The ION RL has sleek look and it's own identity.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go stare at new car for a while and anticipate the drive to work. :D

Nah, regular spoiler.

I love it already. :D

I had a blast driving to work. I scared the shit out of myself a couple of times. I've been driving a 2000 SL for four years so this is quite a change. ;)
