    Congrats!

    Read the blog post too.

    I checked other dealers in nearby cities and none of them had a manual 124. How could this be? This is precisely the type of driver focused car where you’d expect more manuals than autos.
    People buy them and keep them! =D

    I screwed up when requesting a test drive. The salesman had to come along with me, and even with a mask it’s not a good idea to be in a confined space like a car with a stranger right now.
    I did a test drive recently and they had us sign the car out as a free loaner so we could drive alone.

    Congrats again and thanks for doing your part to keep our economy crawling along.

    Nicely done and congratulations. It's certainly a hard to find your car, a 2020 with manual.

    Per CarGurus, most left over models are automatics. At up to $10K discount on a 2019 Abarth, it's very tempting.

    I am impressed you got a good deal on interest rates. My credit union is still offering the same rate (2.9%) but everything is done remotely (including test drive at home) if you wish. Other than signing the loan papers at the drive-thru, it's not much different than my last auto loan... but having the car delivered is new to me. I would have loved that last year, instead of sitting in their office for 4 hours.

    Same. Neither of my credit unions want to acknowledge that the value of money is waaay down and they need to update their rates.

    I really regret not asking them to do that. Considering I've bought cars from them before, they should have done that for me.

    Maybe give them another month? Only problem is we don't know when the inflation is going to kick in. Perhaps they are nervous about that.

    Yep, but you'll note their 3 year CD rates dropped 2 months ago.

    Love the bonnet on this car. Well done. Wish I didn't have a ridiculously tall torso, or I would have bought one
