Well I bought the car and here I am.
It's interesting having a new discontinued model. I think I'd better get everything done that I need to get done.
Cosmetically, the car came with a plastic chrome gas door that I hate (dlr agreed to swap out for stocker).
They applied a chrome plastic grille that I hate (they had to cut away the main grille crossbar to fit it). I guess I'd better order that large plastic piece that includes the stock grille before it can't be ordered any more.
Also I'd better figure out what aftermarket parts I need before they get scarce. I've seen from the forums that if I want to go much beyond either a cold air intake, or a stage 1 brain refry (seems they don't really go together), I need to know if I'll have trouble at inspection time from a tuned brain.
Another Q: I can buy the extended warranty for $2k cash (platinum, 100,000 miles, 7 years) and if there's a realistic chance the turbo will go out, I probably ought to spring for it.
I have a similar situation with my discontinued Buell: I'd better get all the factory and aftermarket parts I need now, because parts are already drying up.
