New member, new taco

Was shopping for new Audi or VW for my wife and to my surprise she says "You should just buy a truck...". Don't need to tell me twice! So after going back and forth between different packages we settled on a 2013 double cab (for the baby) TRD sport long bed in black.



I sold my '03 Audi RS6 to buy my wife a new car and after it was gone she decided she wanted to keep her Subaru. I pouted for a while about that but honestly i can't believe how much i love the new Tacoma. Entune and the touch screen/JBL stereo really were impressive the way they work with your ipod/iphone. Shit i guess im getting more practical now that i'm a dad.

Anyway, went with Sport because i honestly go off road maybe 5 times a year on logging trails for hunting and fishing, mostly just going to work and back. Long bed just for more utility, pick up a lot of vintage honda motorcycles and misc car parts for various projects (building a '78 Ford Fiesta at the moment). Was always toying around with the idea of restoring a small old Airstream or canned ham travel trailer also so the Tacoma just opens that option up as well.

Love what i've read in the forum as well, lots of good info and good people, glad to be here.

Thanks! No I didn't preorder. I went to our local Toyota dealer and they happened to have a 2013 just like this but without Entune. It sold before I could test drive it but was able to test drive a SR5. I always have problems with dealers taking me seriously as a buyer (think its my beard and general scruffy appearance) so i had to put money down and sign some papers before they would go to work finding me what i wanted. Took about a week and a half for them to do a dealer trade and get this in.
