Been posting a bit figured it is time to do an introduction now that my CT200h search is almost complete.

I got my dealer (Putnam Lexus) ETA of 7/18-7/25... Of course it took until 7/25. Went in and got everything all set up and all was going smooth. Then I had an issue with my insurance company. :mad:

Had to finish all the paperwork and not take the car home last night. Now I am waiting until 9 AM to speak with my insurance agent to get it all straightened out. If all goes well (which it should) I will finally be bringing home my CT200h this evening.

I ordered a Star Fire Pearl Premium with Black NuLux.

About me... I'm Derek, I live in the East Bay. I am a 21 year old student and also work full time currently. I have always been very interested in the local groups cars have. I had a Matrix for a few years and us Bay Area Matrix folks had lots of great meets and get togethers. Hopefully there are enough CTs around so we can have some meet ups.

My past cars were a 2008 Toyota Matrix XR (White) and a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T (White). Totally not a chick color :p lol.

Hope to be around here a lot learning and sharing with the community. :D

Thanks Max.
The car is now insured. Took all of 2 minutes to complete. Not sure why the 1-800 number couldn't handle it last night but what's done is done.

I will be picking up my new CT200h tonight!!! :D

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

I will be on the look out for all your cars and be sure to wave if I see you. :)

Looks like there might be enough Bay Area folks to do a meet sometime I'll have to look into it and make a thread. :D

I managed to go from 13 miles on the odometer to just under 100 since I picked up last night. The average shows 46 MPG and this mornings commute was 44 MPG. I know the built in readings are a bit optimistic but for still learning how to drive it effectively and still breaking it in I am extremely happy with those numbers.

Thanks Matt, the mileage is definitely exciting. I can't wait to get through this first tank and see the MPG numbers.

Hey Bill, I am in Fremont too. So there are now at least two in the city. :)

Another piece of great news I just got...
I called XM to add online listening during my trial. I have had online listening in the past and use it often. I asked to add it for the duration of my 3 month trial since it is a discounted rate of $3 per month if you have normal service.

I was pleasantly informed that I have a full 1 year of free XM service. :D
I guess I got what is offered in the amenities package without even asking for it. A great deal on the car just got even better by saving me around $100 in subscription costs. This whole car buying experience has been second to none and Lexus is definitely on their way to making me a customer for life.
