Default 2004 LeSabre Limited; WOOT! I did it again! (now with PICS)

OK, so I'm not a new member. I joined up a week or so ago with my '98 LeSabre. So many people complemented me on its options, that I became a serious student of GM options, and how to read the RPO codes (more on that later)...

Anyway, on to what makes me a "new" member again...

I have been in the market for the last few weeks for a pre-owned car for my wife. We looked at Japanese, but she didn't like what could be gotten in our price range. We looked at Regal/Grand Prix, but it was just too small--especially in the back seat (we have three kids, and often my nephew with us, too). Then we looked at Bonneville/LeSabre, '03+. We settled on LeSabre because it was DARNED HARD (perhaps impossible) to find Bonneville with all the options we wanted (leather and 6-passenger split bench seat, plus performance options).

Well, after many pointless inquiries--private party, reputable dealers...even the "shady" dealers--I finally found her the PERFECT car at the local Lexus dealer (the classic "little old lady trade-in"):

2004 LeSabre Limited, 53k miles, silver with gray leather, 55/45 front seat, Y56 Gran Touring, F41 (ride & handling) suspension, F83 (3.05) gears, load-leveling, traction control/StabiliTrack, HUD, dual seat memory, heated seats, 4-wheel discs with ABS, side air bags, premium sound, XM radio, OnStar...this car has everything her old (my "new") car had, and WAY, WAYYYY more. And not a HINT of a blemish, inside, outside, underneath, or underhood.

The Lexus used car salesman obviously wasn't aware of RPO code labels, and was perplexed as to why I spent 15 minutes staring at the spare tire well in the trunk.

I got the dealer down from $17950 to $13500 (these are "drive-off" prices, including ALL tax/title/tag/VLF/fees AND a 3 month/3000 mile 100% P/L bumper-to-bumper warranty).

Avg of KBB, Edmunds, NADA puts this rig at about $16340 (NOT inlcuding TTT/fees, warranty, etc.), so I'm happy.

Can you tell I'm psyched? But no, I'm not jealous...the '98 is 500 lbs lighter, so it'* still faster, dammit...

So, thanks for helping me out around here. I probably wouldn't have done so well without you all. Once I get my '98 spiffied up I'll try to get some side-by-side photos posted.

Pic'* of the 1998 will have to wait until:

b) We get the digital camera back from the repair shop (daughter dropped it on Xmas!)
