My dealer in Sante Fe didn't question ED at all. I'm paying ED MSRP and list for options. With such a limited allocation, discounts weren't part of the discussion. At a $2445 (I think) savings, ED won't pay for the trip but it will pay for airline tickets for two and a little more. Still, what a great adventure even if it will be pricey at $1.50 (or more) per euro. 3rd week in May about the time the flowers are out in Germany. 135/Silver/Black leatherette/premium hifi/USB and that's it. Bulletproof.
MSRP or not, this car is an incredible bargain and given what it costs in Euro's and pounds, we're getting an absolute steal. It can't last. Buy now.
