      Yep, and the ride is so much better. What's the Alltrack going to go for, 28-34k? Spend the extra 6-7k and get a much nicer car? Not sure where the value is, but perceived value is a weird thing.

      I take issue with someone calling a $75k car a "blue collar hero." But compared to $140k, it's a Walmart black Friday door buster.

      Whoa there... ease on up there buddy... if I'm spending the money, I wanna be able to put on some shades, pop my collar, and say with a cool and steely voice "Yeah... I drive a 911."

      Clearly this would be best. We did $30k+ in savings this year. A minor change. Both our 401Ks are maxed out right now, we have $20k in commercial debt from the OB, no CC debt or otherwise. Disposable...

      Oregon, private party. There's even a 991 4S that's publicly listed that's got 109 miles, and it's going for $25K under new price. But that one's still $120k

      updating question:

      991 w/PDK
      997 manual

      Both are fairly "slim" on options. 997 had a clear bra installed. So that's a plus.

      I played it right, and kept the VW well past its pay off date, and kept making payments into savings. It's a devilishly tempting prospect.

      I feel the same way about the Outback. Which is why I bought a new 2015. After 6 VWs in a row, VW (nor anyone else really) just didn't offer what we wanted/needed her in Oregon - an AWD wagon with...
