In Reply to: Robert, at a difference of $3,215 which ........ posted by Fred Meloan on September 29, 1998 at 11:21:32:
Guess it depends on the deal.....
If I could get those options at dealer cost, then crossing over that $3k barrier (3215) does make it painful. But if you look at those options at the cost that is on the sticker then the difference is back under $3k (2820)
Anyway you cut it, its a tough choise. Honestly in my brief 2.5 test drive I would have to agree with you and pocket the extra money. Except I would want 17" wheels which are not available on the 2.5 (wonder why). Oh well I assume I could talk the dealership into making the swap at the upgrade price for me.
Honestly, the decision would be easier for me because I wouldn't choose leather, OBC, Wood, or the HK stereo which knocks $2.4k off the sticker price.
