Ok, so after 4 weeks of waiting, my caliber is due to arrive any time between now and Friday. Which would work well since Friday is my birthday and my birthday is notorious for not being the best of days for me.

I'm the only guy I know who's house got robbed while he was at work on his birthday as an example.

The girlfriend gets my old cavalier and I get the new caliber.

I'll see how it does on gas pretty quickly as I drive 65 kilometers each way to work and back 5 days a week. Nice relaxing drive along the lake to go from one end of the Okanagan to the other end. Good to unwind after a long day at work ;)

Anyhow, I've been reading these forums for a few weeks now and I am definitely looking forward to being a caliber owner.

By the way, I ordered the steel blue SXT

Man, I've got a lot more waiting to do! The anticipation... it's killing me!!! Mine is supposed to come in sometime between the 16th and the 24th of June!! I ordered a steel blue SXT. I hope it comes sooner as opposed to later. My little red escort doesn't have too much life left!!!:eek:

It was already being sent to the dealership, but not yet claimed by anyone when I swept in and claimed it.

Just spoke to the dealership and they are waiting for the truck to show up, which is expected to show up between now and 4:30 this afternoon.
This means that I may have to wait til tomorrow morning to get it as I have to be back in Penticton by 6:30 and on a Friday evening, traffic is not friendly.
Girlfriend works in the morning so I can always drive her to work and then head for Kelowna to pick up my car.

Tyde, Are your from Pentiction? We go there almost every year for the Ironman Triathlon. It's so nice there.
Yup, Been in Penticton for a couple years now.

I like the whole Okanagan so I've lived between Kelowna and Penticton for the past 6 years.

Ok, yesterday there was a landslide on the highway near Golden, BC. So that screwed up my Caliber getting delivered on my birthday (my luck holds true once again).

Today, I got up and drove to Kelowna as I was told my car would be there by noon today. Stayed there til 5pm then drove back home... in my old car.

So now I have to wait til Monday to get my car. And that's if it shows up by then.

So close, and yet so far...

Jeez Tyde. I'd be making that dealer give you some freebies for the car not being there on Saturday when an Act of God didn't mess up the delivery!

I'd make the dealer tint the windows for free now. IMO, the Caliber looks sooooooo much better with the rear windows tinted. Would look good since its Steel Blue too. Steel Blue looks very good on a Caliber.

Don't worry, I'll be talking to the dealer regarding some sort of deal.

It's just stressful waiting, especially when you take Saturday for example...

Beside having a day job, I also have a consulting business so Saturday is usually a day to spend working on clients' projects, instead I spent the day hanging around Kelowna waiting for the call that my car was in and ready for pickup which means I lost 8 hours worth of billable hours which is lost income.

With that in mind, I will most definetly be getting a deal of some kind. Plus it's not like I'm walking in with no money or with a minimum downpayment, I'm putting 12,000 dollars down on this thing right as soon as I walk in which is a lot of money for me to be putting down on something so it would be nice to know that my business actually matters.

Just spoke to the dealership, sales guys don't start for another 20 minutes so no one could say what cars just arrive but there was a drop off overnight last night with some cars so fingers are crossed that mine was on that delivery.

Okay everybody, my caliber is here :D

Steel blue SXT, 2.0 engine. MusicGate and Chill Zone.

Played with the stereo on the way home, and like it. Can get some good tunes out of it.

I will be posting pics in the morning as it was pouring rain this evening when I got home.
