    MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options Used

    Missing Adaptive Seat, PSE, short shifter, Tech Art wheels and Navi
    06 is USD$4000 cheaper but perfect condition.
    Which one you will choose?

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    The 07 is already last year's model with 08's in dealer showrooms already. And in less than 6 months will be the "old" 997. The 05 has already taken some of the depreciation hit. You can run it for 2 years then come back into the market for a brand new 997.5.

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    No way would I buy a new 997 before the facelift.

    BTW the sport shifter and the PSE can be easily retrofitted.

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    If "slightly brand new" 07 997 means "used" I would get that over the 06. More warrenty coverage.

    Only option I'd miss is the A.S.Seats. Tech art (aftermarket) wheels are a turn off. IMO.

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    For so little price difference get exactly what you want.

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    yeah go with the 06.. the 07 will just be the exact same.. you'd just lose more money on the 07. with the facelift coming up theres NO advantage in getting the 07.
    post some pics when you have decided! best of luck!

    Re: MY 07 Slightly Brand new vs 06 Heavy options U

    Go for the older one (slighly) but you should be getting a much bigger break even after just 5K miles. More like $15K less I would think. My 100K(new) Launch edition 997S '05 is now barely worth $50K and is in perfect shape, runs like the blazes too. It is still under warranty and has about 45K miles on it. You should get a much bigger break on the '06, I gurantee!


    Peace
