I guess I bought it at just the right time. It was listed at 37990 when I put the deposit down, went down to 36990 while I waited and they gave me the lower price. I think that price lasted for an instant. It was still a 2021 with all the latest updates. Maybe there's a new feature or two in them now? Who knows.
