One dealer had one in stock and wanted to get rid of it, so he offered a
car with the lens as a promotion. It wasn't a deal anyone could take. And
the price was list price - $23,xxx when they were normally selling for
about $16,000 at the time. I believe it was an Audi Fox wagon. I remember
seeing the Ad somewhere.
