$53k isn't giving the car away.. It's a 3 year old car with a $66k sticker. If I know dubs he probably paid $62-63kfor it. Ask any German car owner if they'd be happy with $3333/year to own a sports car. They'd be ecstatic
I sold my 1st 13, 58k sticker (paid $53k) for $57k, almost 3 years ago. Sold my $62k sticker (paid $57k) for $55k last October.
These cars, regardless of options are worth between $53-57k right now. Whether the car had a 55k sticker or a $69k sticker.
It's not giving it away. It's actually a good deal for all
