The white one is more striking and would look more elegant at night. The black one is far more aggressive and would look downright menacing at night. It is a tough call.

Do a K check (i.e. kinaesthetic check). Test drive both and see which one feels better. Go with your heart on this.

Salvage title? Um, no thanks, not on a car that new.

I would go with the black one, clear title, sedan, not some foo foo girls convertible

$40-50k buys a seriously nice used 911, I wouldn't even be looking at a BMW.

They dropped the price from $41k to $25k ? They dropped the price by 40% ? Doesn't that sound fishy ?

Well 2 days ago it was just a question of choice. The choices given were great,They helped me make my own choice so now I can help with E34 5 series and E60 5 series. I wanted to share with others the choice that I made. I still cant belive it . After reconditioning 2 e34s from the grave from blown HGs by replacing the engines.Now to have the oppertunity to choose to own and drive A new V10 M5. Life is about choices. Ill Never forget your word is your honer.There is nothing more honerable than your family.
