    So, I have a deposit on a 2013 Classic P85: 38k miles, SAS, Upgraded Sound, Performance interior, tech package, Deep Blue Metallic for a price of $52000. Its beautiful. We pick it up in a little over a week...
    However! I was just sent an alert for a 2015 70kw: 17k miles, basic seats, no tech package, no options. But, it was Autopilot for $54000. Is it worth paying more and losing the speed and options to get AP? Help!

    Yes.

    SAS is the first option I'd lose.
    Ultra High Fidelity Sound is barely better than the base sound.
    The base seats are decent.

    Autopilot makes every difference in the world. Seriously.

    Agree.... Take the 2015...std sound is really good, textile seats really good. Most of what was tech pkg I think u will get anyway, nav, trip planning, driver profiles, auto present handles.

    My opinion: Absolutely no contest! Take the newer one with auto pilot. The $2,000 and newer build year will come back to you when you sell it, even if it is a decade from now. Build quality will be better and the speed will be far more than you could reasonably need.

    Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, the S70 in question was removed in less than 5 hours- unsurprisingly.
