    Which to buy? 2015 R8 or 2014 R8

    Hello Everyone!

    I'm new here and loving the R8 discussions. Thank you for all your knowledge and advice. I'm learning so much!

    So, I'm looking to buy my first R8 and wanted to get everyone's advice/opinions. There are two options and I'm not sure which to purchase...

    2014 Black(ext)/Black Leather(int), auto, 41k miles, carbon fiber inlays and engine bay, B&O sound system, $75k

    or

    2015 Suzuka Grey(ext)/Red Leather(int), auto, 35k miles, standard interior and sound system, red RB brakes, $79k

    Any thoughts? Thanks for helping me choose!

    The '15 would be my choice
    Btw, red interior could only be orderd with the leather upgrade-not full leather but much improved over the Alcantera std interior.
    Condition/history are still key

    I would say I would go with the one that has the better service history, but also what options you prefer. Are they close enough to see in person? I would also suggest doing that.

    Thank you Larry/FeliRocho...

    Both are actually requiring a flight but close enough so that I can drive back home. Both, have had good service records and are in good condition. Neither have a salvage title, or any damage, both have clean titles. So, I'm really torn because I love both of the colors but not 100% sure which way to go. Of course, I'm also thinking about this as an investment so resale is important for me. Any other thoughts? Thank you!

    for me the sound system upgrade is irrelevant
    black is always great looking but a PIA and Carbon fiber isn't as noticeable given lack of contrast
    as always, go for the best car you can afford and afford to enjoy
    to me it would be the 2015 but play both sellers against each other to insure the best deal
    2011 v10, 6 speed, lava gray, 3m, VF750 supercharged, GR wing/splitter and vent covers, custom steering wheel, sprint booster, fabspeed exhaust, lowered on H+R springs, 10/12mm spacers, powder coated wheels, PS2, K+N....

    Suzuka Grey is always admired and appears to be a favourite of just about everyone. For that reason alone it would be my choice.

    Black is my only option too, but with light grey interior, searched for months to find mine and it had to be a V8 too.

    1) Service History,
    2) Your required options.
    3) All-round condition, as it often changes once you see them in person, one person’s mint condition is another person’s pretty good condition. Also doing the PPI might change your mind on either one.

    Good Luck.
