IF they were red plates that car was setup for EURO delivery. Dude drove it around Europe then shipped it here. Actually you save 2-3k off of MSRP.

not necessarily... I've seen Euro delivery cars here with the euro plates... they don't have american plates cause it takes Cali folks a month to get their plates...
