You had me for about 5 seconds and I wondered if it was the GS400 or GS460. My eyes did widen up when I saw the post so I guess you got me :)

You made some good and valid points. Truthfully I don't think your heart was set on getting this GS400. You needed our approval on the exterior color and seem a little indecisive about owning one. ...
