You've already had the best advice. Cancel the order and walk away. They will either give you what you want, or you can get another car.

Cars here do tend to be cheaper, that's true, but do keep in mind that US prices exclude tax, whereas EU prices will include VAT and other taxes so it's not always easy to make price comparisons.

No opinion on whether your price was a good one or not, but once you've already written the check the best thing to do is enjoy your car and forget about what you paid. Congrats on the new car.

Somewhat unrelated, but I'm buying a car for my son and looked at the 2014 Sonata amongst others this afternoon. Have to say, it was a decent drive for what it is and it's a ton of car for the money.
