LOL, he was saying it so seriously too. I'm just like oh okay.

Don't do it!!! I have had exactly the same issue and it cost me $3,500 more in Stamp duty in WA as opposed to Canberra!

Rumour has it your's was road transported 2 days ago....... to Darwin by mistake.
The local dealer, realising that they would not have a truck going south until after New Year, is using it as a demonstrator in Kakadu. They will of course, wash it prior to return.

I think your's was delivered to the correct dealership, but was then given to a new customer who turned up with a pocketload of cash. I believe the name on the sales slip was J. Gillard.
