I've suggested this before, but X plan may save you enough over MSRP for it to be worth buying the car in another city or even another state. Heck, buy a $200 ticket to to another state, but the one on X plan, and drive back to Atlanta. You'll probably save enough to cover the ticket, the gas for the drive back, and you'll have an get a cool road trip and story to tell about buying your ST.
