got a new vehicle. thanks toyota.

and it’s a yaris! and it’s black, and i had that anti smash-and-grab film put on the windows it so it’s also quite gangster. which i quite like. anyhow nobody told me buying insurance was as painful as it was. standard bank originally quoted me R700 odd, and then told me flat out i wouldn’t get a better rate. so i called first for women, and they offered me R426 monthly premium, which is a lot better. then i went to dial direct who gave me the best rate, R416 a month with a R1 575 excess.

note that none of them told me i could bring my excess down by adjusting my monthly premiums, which is quite dodge, i think. it was sitting at R2 500 before i asked about it. all’s well that ends well and dialdirect got my business. i quite like the fact that most insurance comes with perks, like free roadside assistance etc etc. i didn’t know that they did.

so, i got my black Yaris T3+ on Friday. it’s a great little car but it feels enormous inside. very bubble and safe-feeling. and you also sit quite high on the road, which i enjoy. and i like anything that wins rafety rating contests. i also like pretty things and do believe it’s the nicest looking of that category hatch at the moment.
