I didn't just start this search, btw. I've been "looking" since last summer, but have really turned up the heat in the last 6 weeks or so.

Maybe I'll let off the throttle a bit... sucks.
I had the same thing happen at a remote dealer. We agreed on a price, I had transportation set up and the inspector was going to come and look at the car the next day. The morning of the next day the dealer calls and tells me they sold the car. The car had been on their lot for over a month before I negotiated with them. I have to say though, part of the fun for me is making the deal, so it gave me the chance to do it again.

These things have a way of working themselves out though. I ended up finding a better deal locally 2 weeks later.

I would say though, that if you are shopping to a price point, be cautious, the more expensive cars may save you money in deferred maintenance, repairs, or resale. I'm shocked at the way some people treat these exotic cars.

Sorry to hear, but plenty of other cars. You will find the one for you eventually Your wife is so right too, haha.

Strike two for that dealer haha. Great deal tho, 49.9k for that car, looked to be great shape and had some good options. I traded my bare bones v8v in for 47k back in Oct, and the dealer still needed to pay to ship my car to them.

Maple Valley 996T is on a distinguished road
Smile V8V Search

I would not worry about Navigation, it is old technology but the Hi-Power Stereo should be on your radar, also the 19" wheel option. If you find one with a Passport 9500ci it would also be VERY NICE!
The Hunt is sometimes more fun than the actual Deal!

Thanks to all for your guidance and encouragement. You were exactly right, everything happens for a reason. I have found my car, and it's on it's way to it's new home right now. It's the colors and options I was originally drawn to. Had to pay a little more than I had hoped, but hey, it's mine! I can't really explain the excitement, it's pretty crazy.
