Ummm, holdback?? Damn, rooked again!! If it wasn't such a wonderful car that 
would be painful! I looked at a couple of "pricing services" before buying and 
none mentioned the holdback, but OTOH their prices were pretty accurate. 
Sources: AAA "auto pricing plan" and Edmunds' (free) holdback webpage.

Thanks for the info,
