NOTE 19 January 2023: We are aware that Manheim has reset its base year for its index. More instructions will be forthcoming.

NOTE 20 January 2023: We are zeroing in on the appropriate solution to this matter, which includes waiting for a bit of feedback from the source. If we cannot reconcile the current bins with what is being reported, this question will be voided and relaunched.
