      Which car would you buy?

      I am going to take a look and test drive both theses vehicles Thursday, based on miles and the few photos listed which route would you guys or gals go? Running the numbers on KBB the R is listed about 1500k under book and the T5 is about 500above the average. But the T5 looks like it has some mods, headlights projectors/coilovers maybe/tint. I wish I could combine theses cars because sorta don't want a silver car but the interior looks great on that one. Thanks for any replies, also when I go look at theses cars what should I be looking for?

      If you don't need AWD (If the R's awd even works), I would go for the T5.

      yeah the T5 looks better color/tint and lights. Yea 3k seems a bit high. Why would you say the awd might not work hahah. 284k is a grip of miles though.

      Looks aside, drive them both, and decide afterwards. I have seen that R add for quite some time.

      The R is near the end of its life at near 300K miles
      The T5 seems better but still it too is on the downslope of its useful life
