Mine literally has every option available except its a manual. The first dealership I went to said there weren't any cars like it within 700 miles. They tried to convince me to buy a automatic sedan because of "resale value" So, I called another dealership around me and they found my car within 20 minutes. I ended up getting a nasty email from the sales lady for buying somewhere else after all the "work" she put in for me. Lmao.
