I have been emailing a salesman from the dealership that has the second car. According to the CarFax, it's a one-owner car and this is the same dealership that sold it originally - has always been maintained and serviced by them. The salesman claims it has never had any lifter work done and shows no signs of rust (one of my big concerns, as it's in Michigan).
I asked if, given the circumstances, it could be sold as a Certified Pre-Owned, and he says yes it can. That would include a 12/12 bumper-to-bumper and a 24/24 maintenance plan, in addition to reset trials of SiriusXM (I don't care), roadside assistance, and On*.
Assuming I could talk him down a ways, does that sound like a pretty decent deal?
It looks like it does not have the Sport Package, so I'd be missing the "sport pedals," a slightly smaller steering wheel, and 18" wheels... But honestly I hate the factory GT wheels (either version), so those would be changed regardless. And the steering wheel can always be changed later, too.
