Well, as long as you've owned one and were happy with it... hope you find one.
There are many improvements from 00 to the new 05's...
You should be able to get one... but it might be a bit difficult. Try telling the dealer that is the only car you want. I bet he'd find a way to get one out there. More than likely, he was just trying to move something already on his lot.
If that fails, try using a car broker. You can find them all over online... great option if you can't find what you're looking for.
