I think that Ljilja is more excited about this than I am, but I am pretty stoked! My little Mazda has started giving up the ghost (I have taken it to the mechanic 8 times in the past year) so I started looking for a new car. I had some money saved up and so it just seemed like God had worked it all out for me to be able to afford a "new" car.
I was looking for a long while for this, and yesterday it all came together. Everything I wanted for a really good price. This is the first car that I have gone out and bought (the Mazda I bought from my colleagues and so it isn't the same) and so it was pretty cool! Before we finally bought it, I took it to my mechanic and he gave it a once over and approved -he takes good care of me, and I trust his opinion - he said it was in "great shape".
So, details - for the girls it is metallic silver Peugeot 206. For the boys it is a year 2000 1,1l engine with aircon (yay!) and powersteering. It cost 10000KM (about R45000) which includes a year's registration (which is worth about 450KM or R2000) and the best part is that it all happened here in Banja Luka - I was worried that I would have to go somewhere else to buy it as I was not finding anything. And I don't have to worry about registering it until next year!!
