DocJay-did you buy that from a dealer ditching the franchise?
if not then it isn't much surprise. If so then looks like they wanted to move it!..Lotus isn't coughing up in factory money for the 12s, whereas they were for 10s and 11s. I can say I saved quite a bit more than you off sticker docjay back in July (but on a 10) and in those dealings it was quite clear there was a lot of money and headroom on 10s and 11s, just not 12s as mentioned.
