And a trick I learned from this forum is to use dental floss to remove the convex mirror if you don't like where you initially place them. Then I used goof-off to remove the glue residue.

Stay away from air suspension unless you want to convert it to non-air after purchase. I can speak from experience that it's expensive to replace. I would pass on this car.

Also, what model is it - with NAV, premium stereo, etc.? If it is base model, it's too much. Why not go to Atlanta?

Problem is rusting that can freeze and fry the brakes. Yes, I'm speaking from experience. :-) Either use it regularly and include in maintenance or not at all.
