It looks like I've bought another car. I'm driving to Auckland on Monday to finalise the deal. They are taking the Toyota Ist as a trade-in and, if they accept it after an inspection and pay me the agreed amount then I'll drive away with the 'new' one.

Buying: 2016 Toyota Corolla

Trading in: 2004 Toyota Ist

It's not new as it's a 2016 model but has low mileage (we don't say kilometerage for some reason) at 30,000 Kms. It's a Toyota Signature car though which means that it comes with all the warranties and guarantees that the Signature Class cars come with.

I like the little Ist but it's getting a bit old and has done over 163,000 kms. I need a more robust car for trips to Auckland and a bigger motor to tow my garden trailer.

No doubt The Old Girl won't allow me to put all the garden rubbish inside the 'new' car so the dealers are putting a tow bar on it for me this weekend.
