I said why bother, but she insisted, so off we went.I even told the salesman I wasn't going to buy one. My mom sat down and said "Are there any new red ones in the country?" There was one on the boat over. I was torn between the manual transmission and the DCT. I love driving with a manual. She convinced me the DCT will be better for resale.
I started to negotiate price (I was hooked at this point) and as I was playing the game trying to get the SA to come down more, my parents said "Mark it sold, we are going to pitch in the extra 5K!" Swear to God, that is how it happened!!! Before I knew it, I had 5 weeks of sleepless nights ahead of me! Yup, she's trouble...in a good way!
