It should actually show in the model description. Pilot EX-L (just leather), EX-L w/ NAV (self explanatory), EX-L w/ RES (rear entertainment system, but no NAV). Touring has RES, NAV, turn signals on the mirrors, power rear lift gate (which they made standard across the board for 2012+).
$26K for the BMW? Ha! That's what BMWFS says it'll be worth in another 18 months with 50K on the clock. They guessed wrong;)

unfortunately, manheim listings aren't so specific. It just lists EX-L as a choice.

...and NAV and RES really don't add much IIRC.

I signed the paperwork about an hour and a half ago, I now have the 2013 Silverado Crew Cab. The salesman called me this afternoon, offered me the truck for $2,308 difference (plus TT&L). Once I got to the dealership, they waffled on me.
Salesman: One of the rebates / incentives conflicts with another, and it's going to cost you $750 more.
Me: No sale.
Salesman: Okay, we'll eat half of the difference, $375.
Me: No sale.
Salesman: Okay, we'll do the deal as agreed on the phone.
Me: Write it up, I'll sign.
When I got to the finance office, the bottom line was about $270 more than agreed on. Finance guy had to confer with the sales manager, I never budged an inch. .
Their fees were a little on the high side, but not enough to block the deal. I wrote them a check for $2,815, and owe exactly the same as when I drove in with the old truck, only now I have a 2013 instead of a 2011. And, oh yeah, the refinance at the credit union is at 1.99%, the old loan was at 2.49%. That should save me about $3 per month (smile).
And 36 months of warranty left, instead of 17. I had the truck for 19 months, $2,815 divided by 19 is $148 per month. Not too shabby.

Wife finally came home from my kids place and I read her your answer about the Mazda3. Turns out she plans to fix it as it's starting to get hotter down here. They drove up with the Accent for the weekend as I suggested so as to not do any more damage to her a/c. Since it looks like she'll be spending the weekdays down at my kids place till August, she decided she wants to fix and keep her car and not have to use my daughters everyday. At this point just told her to do what she thinks best so I gotta feeling that we're gonna get this puppy up over the 150k mark! Once she fixes the a/c, will get the detail/headlights done so it'll look like brand new. After playing with the figures, still better to spend maybe another $500 and keep it instead of almost $20k on something new, and if we can get another year or possibly longer out of it, why not. Tires are in great shape as are the brakes...just needs an oil change and a radiator flush.
Looks like we're gonna keep it in the stable until the wheels fall off...or until it strands her. And then I'll get the phone call..."get me into a new vehicle...NOW"!

115K Miles exterior and interior is beat up pretty bad. It drives and ride nice but radiator started leaking and its $1700 to fix so it's time to get a new car. Will I get anything for a trade-in or do I need to call ecology auto wrecking or list it on CL.
