I've said goodbye to my family and friends, with much heartache, and now it's time for the worst goodbye of all - I have to say goodbye to my Lexus!

It's the first really nice car I've owned, albeit only on a 12 month lease. It's the new Lexus IS 220d - it has a Start button and everything!

Given that I'll probably be earning pittance in Oz (presuming of course I manage to get a job in the first place), I'll probably have to settle for driving around in Joe Mangle's Ute from now on...sob sob.
