At the rate I'm going, it'll take me until 2012 to get 25,000 miles, I'll start a thread about it then, for now, congrats to you first. :tu:

I bought my car on June 1, 2006 with 15,989 miles. Today it's reading 23,974 miles, ~2,600 miles a month. It looks like rain tomorrow so I get to dive it with the top up... It will be a new experience:biglaugh: .. Na, so far I've driven maybe 75 miles with the top up when the temp got above 100 degrees.

:eek:fftopic: Just an FYI, for those who drive their cars (cars like the SLK or higher end luxury models) less than 6000 miles per year, you may want to talk to your car insurance agent and be able to get lower rates on your car insurance premiums.

Well, my insurance cost me approx $52 plus change per month, full coverage. Last year, I stored it for the winter and brought one way insurance of $29/per month just in case my house burns down or something and it's still insured. My SLK cost less than my cell phone bill per month ($60), I don't cancel my cell phone during the winter so, I'm not going to cancel my SLK this year. Winter here in Colorado isn't what it used to be, last year, there were many nice days I could drive my SLK. I don't think it can get lower than that.

They (the weather forcasters) are predicting a milder winter this year because of a mild El Nino pattern off the Pacific coast. So, here's hoping for more top off days this winter.:tu:

lol, weather forcaster's as accurate as predicting the lotto numbers here. The forecast for today was suppose to be cloudy and snowing, it's like 70's and sunny right now but then again it could snow in half an hour. California is ideal for convertibles, Colorado isn't, it's almost time to drive my boring SUV in the next few days.

Baron7700, the rates start getting better usually at age 21 and thereafter, the car insurance companies would like to see at least 3 years of history (starting at age 18). Don't hesitate to call the insurance agent and ask. If you're at school and have good grades, you'll get a good student discount. If you have LoJack or similar device in the car, it will also reduce the rates.
