Your sticker price differences were off by about $2K. The REAL price difference is $5K+ additional cost, not $3K+ and that extra cost also includes a downgraded audio system with nav. I would much rather have the $5K in my pocket along with HD and uvo. I can spend $99 on a tomtom OR use my phone for navigation.
I do agree with you, not a fan of the wheels OR the painted red fake calipers.
