    Bought my wife an E 350 4 matic loaded with every option. Guess what she hates the car. Its too big for her. So we went to Orlando and got her a Mini-Cooper. She's smiling like a kid in a candy store. The new car will be delivered in 10-12 weeks. If anyone is interested in her old car--PM me. I'm in central Fl. about 2 hrs from the Dollar & 1 hr from Robinson Ranch.

    The car will stay in the confines of the Villages. I'm keeping my wagon. I suffer from brain farts and I need a car that's smarter than me. But there is no car smarter than the Admiral !!!

    Now you two are going to have to stop saying "lets get in the car" to "lets put on the car". Hope you enjoy your new car. LOL

    Which Mini? I got the 4 door Countryman with the 4 wheel drive. Plenty of room and once your in it it doesn't feel small at all.

    Either way they are still a hoot to drive. Now it will be "Lets go motoring" instead of " Lets go for a drive".

    We did the same thing a couple months ago, from a 4wd Blazer down to an HHR, takes some getting used to but she says she loves it. That extra 10 mpg doesn't hurt either. Ross Puls

    PS Guess who got the hand-me-down.(chuckle) But that's probably a good thing as I was never known for being intelligent enough to stay on the roads, always seemed to be something "over there" that needed to be checked out or a deer hauled out of the bottoms or timber.

    Man, we just got an E350 4matic here in ANchorage....its awesome in the snow and ice. I haven't spun a tire yet.

    Can't imagine any car being better than this...we stepped down from Chevy Tahoe in size. We're getting better mileage and saving money on gas, and it does do better in the snow than the tahoe did.
