I was in the same boat as you. I've been chomping at the bit for this car to come out, and I had my dealer all prepped and ready to take my order, but when the time came and I realized that I would need 37k, it hit me hard.
I've got 2 kids, and we've been struggling lately to make ends meet with gas being so high and everything.
I keep going over the numbers, I have 2 cars for myself, but they are old and require a LOT of TLC lately. But their payments together are $330, so I would be doubling that, as well as insurance going way up.
So, basically, I couldn't bring myself to pre-order. It was the hardest decision I've made in a while. I keep hoping I can turn things around, and when the spring rolls around, have enough to get an SS2/RS off a lot somewhere in the country.
Last week was the toughest week for me in a while. Already being overworked, underpaid, unappreciated, and then to have a dream shattered on top of that, was rough. It was hard to see other people here being excited about their orders.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
