When they first came out, 2002, the MSRP was around 12K.
Most sold new for less. After 2003, the prices dropped considerably.
In 2004, I bought my 2003 Retro for $8699.My brother bought a 2007 Retro in 2010, for $7500, new, out the door.
Whether you overpaid or not, you got what you wanted, that's all that matters.
