I was never considering buying another Bonne with 100,000 miles on it, but after a lot of deliberation and thinking of my financial situation, I think the 03 is a winner. I've searched for 2000-2003 cars in a 300 mile radius, and even lower mileage 2001s are $11,000 to $12,000 everywhere. With enough patience I could probably get it lowered, but this 03 has every option, and my desired interior/exterior color. The seats look much nicer than the 2000-2002 (not sure on comfort yet, but none will be like my AL7s anyway).
Karl'* test-drive and inspection of the car has me very confident that it'* in very good shape, and was probably well-maintained. I'll maintain it much better regardless.
The price of the 2003 is just too good for me to turn down.
