Default Did I find a Unicorn?

Hi guys

So this weekend i'll finally be picking up my K9. It's a black 2015 but with the 2016 brown interior and only 13k on the clock. Does anyone else have this combo? i think it looks incredible.

i feel like a kid on December 21st!

is this the premium model, or, the VIP luxury model? I believe the premium ( without several tech. options like heads up display, rear seat power adjustments, etc. ) was available with a tan interior. That tan interior is darker than the off white which is an option on the VIP luxury.
another telling option is the premium has the silver alloy 18 inch wheel and the VIP luxury has the chrome 19 inch.

It is definitely 100% VIP!

It's going to be sad saying goodbye to my wife's old Camry. She had a good life...

They did make at least a few of the late 2015 K900s with the Tuscan brown interior. The first K900 I considered buying was a black 2015 with the brown interior and VIP package. I agree it is a very beautiful combination.

Unfortunately, the car was damaged, and the dealer refused to do any repairs. To make it worse, he then tried to sell it to me for $5000 higher than the price at which they were advertising it. Needless to say, that dealer (non-Kia) lost all of my family's business forever after that! I suppose there is a slight chance it's the same car. The mileage sounds about right. Be sure to check the history for any accidents, and the driver's side rear quarter panel at the join to the bumper panel for signs of damage or repair.

I eventually bought a pristine white on white 2015 with only 1600 miles on it for far less.

The report I saw was clean. Where was the car you were looking at located?

Vancouver, WA. Doesn't mean much. The car might have been transferred or auctioned. It sat on their lot for a long time after I walked away. The report would show clean if the damage was not reported. It was fairly minor so even if it is the same car, as long as the damage was repaired and you're getting a fair price, I wouldn't worry. I walked because the dealer was the definition of a sleazy used car salesman, not because of the minor ding in the fender.

congratulations! terrific looking car; looks absolutely brand new! Nothing more fun than a new car, especially when it's one that is so much car and comfort for the money. Everyone who's been in mine or driven it swears they would buy one once they hear the used pricing and test drive. Such a no brainer compared to twice the $ for a German or Lexus.
Drive safe and enjoy that rare beauty.
