Glad to be a newbie!

Hi all! After growing up riding in these fabulous machines, I learned to drive on a Big Body SEL from the 80's, I finally have my own. I was talking to my Mom a few months ago telling her to buy a Toyota and she said I've been there and am not going back, she's on her third. I thought man she's just crazy. So fast forward to Aug and I'm looking for cars and my hubby says how about a Benz and I said NO, those are old ppl cars! I was dead set on an Infiniti. So talking to a coworker who sells cars on the side and he told me just come look at this car. So I was like okay. At first I was like I don't like it, it didn't LOOK like a Benz. But man once I drove it I was hooked! I purchased a 2006 CLS 500 and have not looked back. The worse thing I can say about this vehicle is it attracts TOO much attention. HA! This from the person who wanted a car that didn't look like anything else on the street. All I can say is after buying it I called my Mom and said now I UNDERSTAND! The only thing is my hubby is working overseas and there are things I know this car can do but I don't have the patience or aptitude to do it. Like program the gararge door opener, bluetooth or satellite radio. Hopefully I'll get some help from these forms!!!!!
