Let's see how i did if i had bought from Shanhuber's loved dealer and got the extra $1.5K in price reduction:
Flight = $300 (don't know exact location of dealer, so searched for flights to Dallas). Leaving a Friday afternoon after work.
Hotel = $240. Arrive Friday night, leave Saturday afternoon after pick up at dealer. It's 1,700 miles away so i need 3 days of driving, aka 2 hotel nights. Total hotel nights are 3 @ $80 each (certainly not resort prices here)
Gas = $220. About 1,700 miles at 25 mpg (optimistic) will take 68 gallons. Current national avg for regular fuel is about $3.3/gal
Meal = $100. I'll need to eat dinner on Friday upon arriving, then lunch and dinner for the 2 full days of driving and likely lunch on the last day of driving when i arrive home. So total of 6 meals.
Total spent = $860
Net Savings = $640
So i had to drive 1700 miles in 3 days arriving home dog tired, slept at holiday inn's at best, didn't do any sight seeing and missed 3 days with the family for $600 bucks. OMG WHAT A DEAL!
