If you explained to us that you were after added comfort, simplicity, looks, or other intangibles then it would be more understandable in my opinion.

Why is your Multi still for sale? Kinda frightens me as an owner of one. Is the market not that deep for them? Or is it simply due to the bid/ask?
What I do and why doesn't matter to anyone but me (and apparently you). What I will say is don't misquote me. Read what I wrote carefully. What I said was it's harder to make the Stelvio go THAT fast (i.e. as fast as the Multi)....key word that you missed. I put it there for a reason. PM me for further info if you want to keep this up. No one else cares....least of all me.

Why still for sale? Because the shops where I've had it consigned aren't doing much to promote it. Not a big deal to me because it will sell eventually.
