Yes! You are so right, mdude. That one you linked to is a true unicorn among '16s.
A large proportion of them had the V6, and it looks to me like a lot of the V8s did not have the VIP package. Probably Kia was trying to pump up the sales figures with lower prices, which from the chart above seems to have had exactly the reverse effect--very few were sold in any configuration.
I bookmarked that one several weeks ago and have obsessed on it more than once since. But unfortunately, the Carfax is dirty. There's a rear-end collision, a windshield replacement that seems odd, and finally the Kia dealer that had it decided to auction it out. New car dealers would normally keep a creampuff like this, assuming the creampuffery is real. So I'm afraid this one might be a bad bet, although I still haven't written it off completely.
It's MUCH easier to find a good, V8, loaded '15, so that may be what I'll end up with.
