Wow ... guess the $6,800 I paid for my '87 5000 wagon (one owner, 35k miles,
all service records, mint, mint, mint) back in '93 was a better deal than I
realized!  They started at $9,800 and didn't get any calls; six weeks later
they were down to $7,500 and jumped at my offer ... good thing, too, as I'd
have readily paid $7,500 (it was only force of habit that caused me to make
them an offer!).

I hope you enjoy yours.  I certainly loved mine for the four months I drove
it before "lending" it to my mother after her car was stolen.  I've thought
about asking my parents to buy it from me but then I remember how much they
paid for my six years of college and bite my tongue...
