    Icon14 Materialism at its best

    Yesterday, I bid adieu to my 2003 Corolla and traded it in for another car. When I first started looking, I wanted a Scion Tc, then a Nissan Altima, then a Maxima, then a Pontiac G6, Chevy Monte Carlo, Camry SE or a Camry XLE.

    After doing all my research, I decided the Camry XLE was the car for me. I went to the dealership with my dad to test drive and buy it, when my dad noticed a loaner car standing in the parking lot. One good look and he wanted me to get that car. I argued with him and told him that its a class above the camry thus more expensive, but he offered to pay the difference if I got that car!

    In conclusion, I am now a proud owner of a brand new 2007 Toyota Avalon Touring edition. The car is black, with a V6/268hp engine, equipped with power leather heated seats, power sunroof, HID lights that blind drivers in front of me, a rear spoiler, climate control and all that jazz. The car and the interior is all black, making the car look oh so cool.

    Pictures coming within the next week, whether you lot care or not
    RIP Craigos

    Thanks, bit of a rising above adversity for me and my family after our relatives' predictions about us 10 years ago.

    Yup. Used have black interior long time ago, so I know. I'm planning on getting shades. It'll be in the garage for most of the day as I work overnights.

    Errr..Take a look at Avalon Stereo and then compare the one that comes with Maxima.

    There is just no comparison here, Maxmia hands down. I must say I owned a Maxima for 5 years and then traded it for a Toyota although not avalon.

    Matter of opinion really. I liked the Maxima's interior but not as much as the Avalon's. As far as the exterior goes, I rate them about the same really. Maxima's sportier, and is good at that, but the Avalon has grace.

    BTW, the new Altima's interior owns all.
