Looks like alex and justy are both winning. My car isn't on that train. LOVE IT.

My dealer put me up in an '11 SES loaner. So that'll keep me happy this weekend, but I'm sure that will fade next week when you guys are enjoying the 12s and mine is still MIA in MI. Posted via FF Mobile

Much more fun than my 97 neon or 02 ranger. But it's still an old generation. It's a high trim entry level car, whereas the titanium is a luxury car in a compact body(IMO). Everything is hard touch plastic, no leather, no moonroof, no 10speaker around. Still a great car though and probably considerably more affordable. It's nice and responsive, has a sporty, aggressive look. It has sync, bluetooth, ambient lighting, heated seats, so there's a few toys to play with. And 7L/100km instead of 19L/100km in the ranger.

I was actually smiling while driving yesterday, especially when I got out of gridlock.

If my build date is correct on my sticker there should be a birth taking place today
I guess I need to wait a day or so before the ETIS system updates.
Assuming all is going as planned

Hey Justy, how are you actually tracking the train? I have the company and railcar info, I just don't know what to do with it.

RDJTX, did your sticker have the remote start listed as dealer install?

Someone I know is tracking it for me.
