After a lot of talking with my husband and thinking, we decided to not enroll Motoki in the athletics club. As sad as it is to say, it ends up boiling down to money. Not that we can`t afford it (it is outrageous… But that`s not the issue) – but rather that it would be a total waste to have him join it now.
The school year ends in the middle of March. For the last few weeks there are various events… The only advantage to joining now is that we would only have to pay half the regular entrance fee… A discount of 3000yen. And in return, we`d pay 2 months worth of class fees (a total of 12000yen) for two classes. In my eyes, a complete waste. I`d much rather pay the regular entrance fee and start at a point where there are a normal number of classes each month.
Motoki was disappointed, but that is life. We will consider joining again in April.
I doubt there is anyone out there who cares about this as much as we do, but more fun car info after the break!
Two weeks until the new car arrives. We have been preparing things bit by bit. The official floor mats are far far too expensive for being, well, pieces of carpet with plastic spikes on the back. In USD, around $300. We opted to have custom ones made to order – for around $80.
The same is true for the navigation system. The best official one is around $4000… *choke* And it`s only alright in features – nothing amazing or special. So we bought a third party navigation system for about $1700. In terms of features, it is about twice as nice as the dealer one. We`re having it installed at the dealer before we receive the car, so actual installation costs are the same as the dealer version. Yay.
