Doesn't have to have a cf roof, don't really care for that. So my question is, going by KBB prices I see that it would be possible to find what I'm looking for but when you do a search you see a bunch of then for more than $30k which to me I think they are overpriced. The question is, is it better to buy a higher mileage (over 100k) car in good shape and save the money for the mechanical updates or buying lower miles and pay a premium and spend anyway to update parts like RB's and TA's?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Buy a lower mileage car and do the work. I was in your shoes and ended up going a bit above my budget for a car with 42,700 miles on it and looking back I'm so happy I did.
