Well Well Well, I am now the owner of a very special 2006 Xb ....I Found a Garage kept 2006Xb for a very reasonable price ....He Wanted that garage space for his new BMW. Enough said , I showed his my totaled 2006 XB.....We came together with what number i could drum up to help him make this Xb go to a good Homie ....I stalked the Xb while we kept it real and honest as it should be ....and based it on what the that number could do "this Weekend". I thought about a couple of my collectors and urge a little deal was a possibility .... But kept clear I came there to see the with following up on another previous situation. I look further into how the interior looked so new it bares still a newness. The dash board looked so clean as if the factory just unwrapped it. There was no smell of either pet nor college beer or vummit. No Amourall no insents ....nothing. No smoking of any type. No stains or finger prints. It had barely 187K miles on it. Every document from sales to gas receits. And this session went on into a nice afternoon. and he made no bones about the manner or the touch of pride he put into ownning on. He said the only reason is I don't want to keep this Xb out in the elements...I'd rather give to car away ....To a Friend or a family member ...I showed him my artwork only because he wanted to know. I said the size of the scale I am painting daily fits well and stacked in an Xb. I showed my website and because his Mom's Lexus is blocking the Xb in the driveway so , In order for us to test drive it together, we had to wait for her to return from a long dog walk. So I asked to pop the hood and start the Xb for a moment we got time. And so he did and while I check how instantly it turned over my heart pounded....The engine compartment was not the cleanest I figured but, it clear all things where in maintained. There was dust but not "Burnt Dust". The fumes coming out the back was almost nonexisting . I was impressed. A small clear cracked peice of the lense I found... But I made no mention of it like "oh the cracked piece is gonna possible need to be repreared " ...Lol While a little more time when by we didn't talk much. I was seeking to imagine this situation needs to go as it is promised to me first. And he paid no direct attention to me only said things like "hummm yeah for sure" ...The artwork on my website had it's grip. So I did some steps around both the Xb and the BMW. I showed him again what my Xb looked like before and after, then said our X's would look cool parked together hey?" And So the Mom returns and while she's moving her car my damage settlement hits my bank acount....my ace is in place...We did the test drive and now the truth shows ....A Smooth shifing and a well ballanced experience happens. The glory of being a second owner ....I have my list of items I want ASAP ... I want my bike rack on top, The windows to be tinted I gotta have my sway bars and a Bra for my Xb. NOT ! . Right now I just want to take in the true essence of the bare excellence of owning one so neat and sweet. Thanks for reading my Happiness Rant.
