    I was looking at EBay tonight and I saw this listing of a guy who traded his Hellcat for a 5.0 mustang because "it had too much power". I think the next thing I'll see in the "unbelievable section" is a guy getting a penal reduction "because it's too big".

    At least he doesn't have to worry about having too much power in a Mustang

    "too much power" is Dealer speak for "we are going to screw you like a cheap piece of balsa wood" :D The previous owner got his money's worth driving
    it 12000 miles last year.

    Check out the link. The Dealer is saying it had too much power. Not the previous owner.

    "It is one of the few AUTOMATICS available still in captivity and ready for adoption as they were a limited production"

    were there less auto than manual produced?

    This is correct but at the last of the 2015 production run they wouldn't give dealers allocations for A8 but they would the M6's.
    The original ratio was about 8 out of 10 were A8. It was skewed heavily towards the M6 when they couldn't produce enough of the automatics.

    It will never sell at $71,000 and at best, $62,000 is about all it's worth.

    I call bs on the car having too much power,,,I would say the car is a financial issue, and he got a car half the price.. But saying it's too much power sound better, lol

    I'm reading this from my hospital bed. Still recovering from my penal reduction over Christmas break. Wives and girlfriends all said it was too big. It's funny how the holidays can bring everyone together. All the women in my life threw in a dollar each to pay for the procedure. I think they call it a boomerang gift or something where you get something for someone else but it benefits you. Anyway, I'll be discharged tomorrow and one of my girlfriends will pick me up in our new 5.0 I think. I may be confused as it could be my wife in our new Camaro SS. Either way I'll get to one of my homes eventually somehow, just not as fast as I would with one of the other wives or girlfriends that has one of our hellcats.

    What a fool, doesn't he realize that's why they give you two different keys? Or the option to dial the HP down to 500 or 300?
