    Electric - they are getting better. Just grab and go. Have a spare battery ready charged, too.

    I cubed them up, sautéed them, added canned tomato sauce (not ketchup), onions, mushrooms and Italian spice, + whatever in the fridge you like, and poured it over pasta.

    There was a woman who offered that here - don't know if she is still around, or even if it was worth the work, driving, time, etc.

    You are a goal oriented person, and busy, it is understandable. Maybe a paying lease to help out would give you the shot in the arm, or some share arrangement with the work.

    I bought a ten year old, sight unseen, - he was very green - barely w.t.c. and no cavaletti - he was a nervous type, but kind and was a good mover.

    2015 now - the transmissions are so good now and the 'tow mode' is super for using the engine brake coming down hills - no brakes needed for the most part.

    It is interesting and I think the Mark 11 or 111 would have some modifications as feed-back comes in. We never buy the first of anything, and that includes cars, but it may be a breakthrough.

    I think I would be offended (a bit), but considering the payoff I would suck it up and tell myself that if no offence was meant, there should be none taken.

    At this stage for a 7.3 you will be lucky to find one, let alone asking for specific features. Low mileage would be my priority and good maintenance.
