There's a classified section here on this forum. OEM 17" wheels would make a great winter tire choice. Might have more interest next fall.

I wouldn't freak out about that, it's probably "within spec". I've had that on other cars and always been told it was just related to the normal functioning of the oxygen sensor. If there is no code...

Why don't you remind them, especially the sales staff, that you intend to do two trade-ins and you'd like them to have the diagnostic fee absorbed by your (existing?) warranty. If they balk, remind...
