    I know you get more equipment on the SE, but I miss the plaid seats.

    But no Fender Audio if you get an SE with Plaid.

    It is very loaded with about every option. Also, it was in the Pacific NW and ended up at a dealer in Connecticut. Is that a normal distance for an auction vehicle to travel?

    I saw that. $3k option? I'm not an audiophile and wouldn't order it, but if it's there, that's OK.

    it is expensive. The HK is good also, but this one is supposed to be one of the best systems available in a car.

    no, not normal. Not sure it went through auction, though. No idea why it traveled across the country.

    Auction value would be right around $40k ... roughly. They aren't terribly consistent.

    It’s strange how really expensive options on a new car add little cost on a used one. I think the difference between a used Murano SV and SL was about $1,000 when I bought mine. I didn’t even look at a Platinum because the SL had the features I wanted and I didn’t want the bigger wheels on the Platinum.

    So what would a reasonable offer on a CPO be? I'm thinking $43K? Also, what's my 2014 535d x-drive with 83K miles worth on a trade?

    I don’t think you’ll get it to 43. Maybe 45 would get it done. No harm in pushing for more. Looking at about 15 on yours. So $30k difference in the two.

    I have the Fender audio system in my 2015 Golf SE and am very pleased with it. I've never gone more than 1/2 way with the volume and it fills the cabin up nicely at that point. I know I would pass on any vehicle without a specialty audio system as they mean that much to me. And if not included, I'd be at an aftermarket car stereo store within days after the purchase to add components to make the audio system work for me. Have done that on every vehicle I've ever owned because I have to gave it. I always try to factor in an extra thousand or more to upgrade the tunes if necessary. And it's something I won't compromise on...end of story!!

    Thoughts on what would be a good offer for this? Low mileage LCI M2, not CPO but still a lot of warranty left.

    $47k auction value, so not much wiggle room likely. All depends what they own it for, of course. If they took it on trade themselves, it is possible they got it for 45.

    Note that the carfax shows 75 more miles than the listing. Someone has been joyriding. :)

    Yes- better than a DCT w/o a hole in the roof, but when I get an M2C it will be built to my specs exactly.

    Except that my wife and I never use them- and they add about 65 pounds to the highest point of the car...

    Besides the 65 pounds added to the highest/worst point in the car, you usually lose 1 to 1.5" of headroom height, important for people over 6' tall.

    not in a CUV. I sit "tall" and really only had 1 normal car that it caused an issue (the TL). I have so much clearance in the RDX that another 2 inches would be totally useless, unless I started wearing a 10 gallon hat while driving!

    and in a 4,000# "trucklet" the extra weight up top (whatever it really is) is not likely to make any material difference. And if you want to go racing on the track, I am pretty sure a Santa Fe or Outback is not the right choice!

    of course it is personal opinion. If you don't like it, don't get it. I love it and use it all the time. I would gladly trade off the 20-21" ultra low profile tires a lot of companies seem to force on you now. those are completely useless, and are actually a negative (more prone to damage, add unsprung weight, stiffer ride, noisier). I am sure normal sized tires I would notice. not having a roof, I never would in terms of driving dynamics.

    I'm with you on the wheels/tires getting absurdly large. Also, there is high inflation on tires lately as I'm checking prices.
