Hairy green toads from Mars made Fred Heald say:

Nope, he 20V was not in the book. I went through this a few months
ago buying mine. I think the original list was about $2k more than the
base 90Q.

$16,500 is not too bad. We paid $15.9K with 46K miles. It was Pearl
White (clearly worth more ;-), and had a few extras.

If you want it, buy it! Don't get too hung up about a few

Only my cat shares my opinions, and she fits better in the 100Q.
