I got into CarMax at 3:45 or so, and found out there was a 45 min wait, so I ran out to do an errand or two, and when I came back they'd called my name. I talked with the salesguy for a bit, and then went out to see the car. I decided to test drive it, so we pulled it up and went in to do the paperwork. While I was waiting for my salesguy to get the tag he left on the last car, another salesguy came up to me and asked if I was testdriving the 2001 Maxima. I told him yes, and he asked who my sales guy was. I told him, and my salesguy said that some other couple was interested in the 2001 Maxima. He wasn't lying, because when we went out to testdrive my car, we saw the salesguy with a couple in the 2000 grey Maxima heading out to test drive. When we came back from my testdrive, we put the 'sold' tag on it, and I went and traded my car in (for almost nothing) and I did the carmax financing. They have this 3 days penalty free cancel their financing if you get a better deal, and I already had a better deal lined up, I just didn't have the paperwork. The other salesguy asked yet again after we came back, saying that the couple really wanted the 2001, and he said, "Didn't you see the sold tag on it?" :) It's MINE, all MINE!!

Very nice! What are power mirrors? They sound good. I want some.

Power mirrors mean you push a button and the windows go up and down as you need 'em to -- no rolling a lever or such. Is coool.

and I have the side view mirror defoggers too, ha ha ha!

Thanks! I still feel kind of weird driving it, as it's swaaank.

My favorite quote from my friend who was in the passenger seat: "Do you have heated seats? Because, my butt's getting warm!"

i love that car.

how are you liking it so far? (stupid question, but enquiring minds want to know!)

I love it, but it's such an upgrade from my previous car, that I don't quite feel like it's mine -- and it is such a swankmobile!

But it is fast! Some geeber van driver tried the trick of getting in the right lane and getting a good start off the green light to get around me, and I made him eat my 227 hp dust. :)

It is much bigger than I'm used to -- makes a difference in turning the car, and getting it into the garage (we use them for our cars up north, btw ;) )
