I happened to be at the dealership earlier today picking up a little dust cap, and struck up a convo with one of the sales reps. He said that they're not going to market them in areas that get bad winter weather. They had one in the showroom for 74k and the thing doesnt even come in all wheel drive. Not even an option. you can get a 5 series Xi for 49k,
The smg transmission looked fun though.
