I have a 2.5 with the all leather steering wheel. However, I think the wood on the 3.0 looks pretty cool. Do the low profile tires on the 3.0 give you less clearance in snow? I was of the mind that the 17" wheels give you more snow clearance than the 16" wheels. I took advantage of the $5500 discount but now I see it is up to $6000. I see that they increased the price on the 2005s by $1,000 - probably due to the increase in the price of oil.

Looks are one thing, feel is another...sweaty palms on a wood wheel is not a good feeling . My wife is the one who wants one of these cars and she did not like feel of the wood at all. I did not drive it myself, but I am sure I would much prefer the feel of leather.
There would be no difference in ground clearance, the larger wheels just mean lower profile tires. The outside diameter of the tire would be the same with the 17 inch as it is with 16 inch.
Price increase is probably because of the exchange rate. Also they added height adjustment feature to the standard passenger seat and reduced the cost to add automatic trans to the 2.5. I think for a 2.5 auto the net increase in list is like $600.

A leather steering wheel cover would be an easy and inexpensive "fix" to an adversion to a wood one!
#17 of 74 this board vs. Kelly Blue Book

I hate to be a spoiler - but the fantastic prices quoted by buyers on this board do not reflect what the Kelly Blue Book indicates. Does this mean the KBB is not accurate or up to date?
I'm curious to know what kind of discounts (if any) are available on a brand new car, ordered custom from the factory.

What do you have? I have looked at my local (Nashville) dealership and they have about 14 in stock. What kind of pricing for a base 04 3.0 (just as a point of reference to the numbers they are giving me here)

cgoode is welcome to provide general pricing info; however, we have a really strict policy against soliciting, and posting dealership inventory is pretty much a no-no.
We don't want to get cgoode in trouble!
