    I know summer of 14 they offered better resolution speedo. so if looking for a 14 any idea how to tell. CPO cars have no actual pics of bezel difference to tell visually.

    I don't think the resolution really matters that much, but you could just look for higher VIN #. Starting above 30000 should do it.

    You might be able to tell what you want to know by comparing options listed on the car with the Wiki that tells roughly when options changed. The Wiki is extremely valuable to potential CPO buyers...

    Trying to get the most car for the money. LOL

    P85+ 2014 AP1 which would be late year is ideal but based on 483 CPO don't see that happening in the question week left in grandfathered in.

    We have a 13 P85 right now on hold for 58k but for 6500 more we get a decent amount of upgrades and Pearl vs solid.

    Yes we used this. they say months not vins. Looked at this after we went to a 13. LOL we had a good deal on 15 85D but don't think our money will be what we thought so backed into a p85. plus I really wanted a fun car to drive

    Yes, it would require some work. You would need to compare the features listed for the car you are looking at and see when those features were released. VINs are not exactly sequential, and definitely don't match up with released features.

    I think we are in the same boat. Looking to buy also and looking at 2013 and 2104 models. Would obviusley like newer, but my budget is tapped at these 2 years. Is there any significant difference that I would really miss if I went with a p85 2013 model vs a 2014 p60?

    I would do a p85 over a 14 60 any day. The fun factor alone would be huge difference. even over a 70D in my opinion.

    I commented about the instrument cluster resolution in your other thread. If it is really that important to you, look for VINs above 40,000.

    Even 85, a P85 would still be better. now 85D has about the same performance, AP1 and few extras
