Since my car was blocked in the showroom I test drove a recent trade in they had received. It was a 10 month old 13 that looked like it had been put through a meat grinder. There were dents in the hood and roof where it looked like somebody had run across it. They said it was black but it was so dirty it was hard to tell. The cheap after market wheels were so curb rashed and the sidewalls of the tires so torn up I don't know how they held air. The interior was covered in random patches of badly applied, pealing plasti dip and covered in some sore of white sticky dust. The whole inside of the car stunk of burnt clutch and the engine kept missing badly at idle.
The sales person said "do whatever you want since I don't think you can hurt it anymore". I did. Think she peed a little at one point.

I got mine used and went with my wife, no salesman wants to sit in the back of an FRS so we got to take it alone. My wife is cool about me driving like a nut so I was free to give it a beat down. I drove it down an unpopulated road, turned off the TC (long hold) and then did a u-turn with the rear swinging and was already sold. I took it onto the highway and then back to the dealer to by it. It was hard to pretend I was only partially interested when talking to the salesman.
