He has a point. Fly down, Get the dealer to arrange a pickup or grab a shuttle. If its in the Northern VA area you can fly into 3 different airports, or the Richmond, or Norfolk if you are south and/or east. Just take the beltway around DC and head toward Frederick, Md and from their you can take the scenic route through Harrisburg and Allentown and the hit Jersey. I have done that drive a lot. And their will be no need to speed when you drive it off the dealer lot. VA state law treats speeds 20 over the limit as a felony and radar detectors are illegal. And by felony I mean arrested, car impounded, substantial fines. But that day or driving gets the break in period over faster.
I am flying north to pick mine up and taking the back roads through Connecticut, Jersey, and PA to get home.
