Used 05 vs used 06 vs new 06
I have been the happy owner of a BMW 318ti for the past 7 years, and was looking into buying an M3 or S4 until one of my friends told me to test drive a Lotus Elise.
I know I want an Elise (hardtop, touring and starshield), but just not sure which one. A used 05 goes for around $34k, a used 06 goes for around $39k, and a new one is about $44k. Do any of you think the $5k increments are worth it, or if the $10k between a used 05 and a new 06 is worth it?
Also, any of you have had experience dealing with either Park Place in Seattle or Lotus of Sacramento?
