This is with leather, SYNC, backup camera, premium Sony audio, and 16,000 miles on it.

What are these cars going to be selling for in a couple of years, when so many hit the market off of leases and from rental agencies?
About the same as the current 12s vs 13s now when the 13s start coming off lease.

There are already used 2012 fleet/ rental cars, but they haven't completely depressed the pricing either, as they are trying to get more money for the cars.
