I am thinking that $10K stripes on a base is a harder sale (if that can even be said?!!) and could be why they were willing to deal more on that one. If it were me (and not likely!), I would feel like at that point I would try to push for the CFTP without the painted stripes or for sure wait for the new Handling Pack and again without the painted stripes. Congrats on a great deal on both!I thought i was getting the deal of the year getting one at msrp. I didnt think they would budge below that so I didnt even try. Kinda kicking myself for not trying now.
