exactly the same thing here… tight on budget, and what pops up on craigslist, if not a mint condition MkV for less than $300…

I had to work real hard to convince myself there are better things in life worth waiting for… the moment has passed… maybe someday it’ll come back in the form of a rerun. who knows. but for now – I think I made the better choice.

Peace mate!
