Agree with theoryguy - A good deal would be $40-41k plus TTL. If possible, get multiple dealers involved competing for your business.

I think each MSD reduces the money factor by .00008 - so 9 should about eliminate your interest. I think they'll probably only let you do 8 so you don't achieve a negative MF. So you might end up...
