I have been lurking around the eos forum for a while. I purchased a 2012 eos demo with 3K on the clock in May of 2013. Comfort model with performance package and black on black. I absolutely did not want another black car and I did not want a black interior. But at 10K under list I could not refuse.
I would like to thank other forum members for their information about the car. I bought the krytox and read many of the posts to relieve my cognitive dissonance. I have not seen anyone draw this comparison, maybe they are too young, but I think of the eos as a vw kharman ghia. A vw with a more attractive and conventional skin. It would be great car as a coupe with a large sunroof but it is outstanding as a convertible. I think of it as the original audi TT, I drove around Shannonville racetrack as a Driver for a Day, and wanted but could not afford.
I see they can go for over 50K now and I say are they nuts. But the people who lease it just care about the payment. I bought mine for the long term and hope to keep it for many years.
