You're too young for that. It's cool, but think about how much fun you'll have driving a reskinned minivan.

Like I said daily driver...there'll be something else for fun. I plan to buy that something else by the end of the summer...I'll eventually replace the the 3, with something large and practical. Ideal for hauling things/people around.
