It was a nice and rare combo too. The dealer asked for $10k. Too bad I missed it.... However, long story short try to look around and wait for the right opportunity. GL!
Good point but the fact still stands if something should break (and it will even on a well maintained 100k mile car) his repair costs could seriously break his piggy bank.
