I am dropping off my car today to complete all the loose ends from our original car purchase and contract. 

  1. The motor vehicle registration paperwork has been processed, and I’m getting my original license plates installed on the new car.
  2. It was raining on the day of purchase, so I’m getting the window etching (security feature) completed.
  3. They are installing a Toyota-authorized remote starter in the vehicle, which requires new key fobs for everyone.

I still want running boards, but considering the economic climate, we didn’t feel entirely comfortable spending an additional $800 for parts and labor to get them installed.  If I hit the lottery, sure we’ll do it.  In the meantime, we’ll just have to get a sturdy rope for the short people trying to get into my car.
