With my little list in hand of all the cars I was interested in (within my price range and used because on Saturday I realized a brand new car was out of the picture for me...at least the kind I wanted) I went to the dealer and met the NICEST
I've gotten quotes in the past when I wasn't too serious about car buying and the insurance companies wanted to charge me (hold on to your seat) around $6K a year for full coverage. I've never had car insurance before so that was the reason for such a high price. I went to Allstate to see what they could do for me and because I never had car insurance they said they couldn't give me a policy and it would be hard for me to get a policy any where else. It made me a little sad and frustrated because it made no sense to me. If they wouldn't give me car insurance and no one else wanted to give it to me then how was I suppose to get it so that I could get car insurance in the first place?!?!? Right away I thought well I guess I won't be getting this car since I saw it as a "bad" sign. Well I went home to talk to my father about this disturbing discovery and to see if he could insure it under his name and it seems that I do have car insurance and have had car insurance since I started driving 11 years ago under his policy (this is a good sign btw I'm happy again!) He tells me to call his insurance company and see what they would charge me. I did and the people there tell me that it would be (hold on to your seats again) $2788 a year for full coverage! Can you tell that it's another good sign??? *more happy dancing*
Now I'm the type of person that does not like to get so much good news in one day because I always feel something bad was going to happen, like
Anyhoo back to the car. I'll make it short now I feel as if I wrote too much hehe. We went on Tuesday, the car was still there, I test drove it, I loved it, my cousin said it was a good car and haggled with the guy, he brought down the price and threw in a "free" alarm. I left the deposit to hold the car and signed papers. Thanks to my cousin I do not have to eat tuna fish and sardines and on Friday I go pick up my Certified Pre-Owned 2006 Jet Black with black leather interior BMW 330xi with all the bells and whistles. I'm a car owner and it doesn't feel as scary as I thought it would be. It is definitely an upgrade from my mother's old Ford. I kept telling my father I have 4 working power locks and windows and AM/FM stereo hehe the radio, rear driver's side window, and driver's power lock in my mother's car doesn't work. I'm so happy and can't wait until Friday :-) When I first went to the BMW dealership I was so intimidated, it's HUGE! Don't believe me check it out for yourself I almost didn't go in but I'm glad I did :-) Have a great day!!!
