So that's approx. 2 months you either are making payments (or paid in full) for a non-existent car . Math can still favor ED even after considering this, all I'm saying is that margins can be a little smaller than anticipated.

Me? I went full hog and put some 4000 miles on mine while in Europe (Alps, Ring, Spain, France). It was worth every damn penny.
In reality the car exists once it is picked up at the Welt, however the eventual boat trip will make it look like it does not.
