If we meet for some parts and you list for $500, I show up and bargain down to $450, and the. Reach into my ATM/pocket and pull out $400 and say that's all I got, that's cool?
I guess I'm on a different wavelength than most.
As for what happened, I would take the cost of replacing the part that "could possibly/maybe need replacing" in the next year or 2, to make the deal happen. But it didn't play out that way.
Remember, the car is being sold etested and safetied.
