New SVTF owner!

Picked up a Red '03 on Saturday.

I love it. A world of difference between my new baby and the Saturn SL I was in for the last 5 years.

Still getting used to her (I have to make myself run the engine out sometimes...my Saturn wasn't so happy at high revs). And it came sans manual, so I'm having to figure out how everything works on my own. I think I've figured out most of what I want or need.

And I absolutely couldn't find reverse by myself. Salesman left me alone with the car for a few minutes and I promptly pulled the car halfway out of the spot and then couldn't get her back in. I still have to fiddle with it sometimes to get it going the wrong way.

I'm quickly developing a great love for empty back roads.

Ah, Romania.

I lived in Moldova for a few months and wanted to visit Romania but never got the chance. I regret not making time, because it will be a long time before I'm back in that part of the world (if ever).

Welcome and enjoy! They have their quirks, but I've yet to find a car that's as good for the money.

As for the manual, there's a link to them online in .pdf format. I dont have it here, if I remember I'll post it in the morning when I get to work.

Post up pics!!
