Central PA-New '02 in Seal Gray

Just picked up from a dealer auction:

-2002 Base manual with 79K
-Two owner clean Carfax
-Seal gray over black
-17" staggered wheels
-Partial leather
-Heated seats
-Very clean through out, with tires and brakes just done
-Needs center caps and climate control display replaced/repaired (lots of info here)
-Dealership giving a once over Thursday
-Need to figure out BT streaming (looks like many posts here to help on this too)

I don't wrench my own cars (not much time and no tools at all)

Can someone recommend an indy shop in Harrisburg PA area?

No, I purchased it through a Manheim auction. What was a retail price on the similar one?

I paid about $9K before fees.

I don't think you can do better than forum member JFP in PA.
