A local dealer has a SXL for what seems to be a great price of 24k. My only hang up is the color. It's smoky blue. I would really like a SWP (snow white pearl). It does have the white interior, which I really like.

I used to have a Optima 2.0t in SWP and loved it.

I know it's ultimately my decision, but is this price too good to pass up? I'm leaning towards waiting for a SWP to be available, but I don't like black interior. Decisions, decisions.

Is it just me or does the cadenza driver seat sit really high up, even on lowest setting? I test drove one and even the salesman said, " you're a big guy, lower the seat". I'm only 6 foot and it was as low as it goes but my head was near the ceiling.

I'd say you should wait for it unless you want the car now. Because if you just look you'll find the swp color for you. As for the seat its a bit high even lowered and i'm 6'8 but after reclined a bit and fixated it works for me.

I'm 5'10" and have no problems and can lower my seat more if I want. Plenty of room to raise as well. Maybe it's just the way you sit? And Carl has been having a bad time with his car no doubt, but there are others of us that have had 0 problems. The price does sound good though depending on the condition of the car and how many miles are on it. Drive it and see if you like it, maybe see if it's had any major services done it or if its been repaired from a wreck. Feel free to browse the forums, plenty of posts about the things people like about their cars, some minor things we don't, and then we have problem cases like Carl who just seem to have gotten a bad car (possible with every manufacturer). I've had my car for 13 months and have less than 9.5k miles on it, I don't drive it as much as some others but I still love it. No real problems with mine except it was a pre October '13 build so I don't have a cooled passenger seat, but I don't sit over there so I'm ok with it.
