TRACKSOPT did not work for me on a renewal. And I was told that it is no longer a valid code on a new activation either. Talked to a supervisor just to make sure.

I see a dealer on CL in LA offering a '15 for $6000. Tax & Fees is about $675. Prep is usually a few hundred. So that should be a good maximum.
