Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster here. I have been shopping around for a Focus for some time now, and have found two at a local carmax and can't come to a conclusion. It is between a 08 SES with 45k miles, and an 09 SE with 19.5K miles.
The dilemma is fairly superficial to be honest. The 09's interior is in better condition (scratches on plastic interior on the earlier car) than the 08's and the miles are amazing. Price is pretty close too (around $600 difference). The problem I am having is that the SES obviously has the better features (Sync system, fog lights etc.) Aaaaand that the 09 is gold...I just...think that I would look like a pimp on a budget driving it. Especially if I would want to do some mods to it.
I am just having a hard time. One part of me is thinking "go for the newer one with waaay less miles", the other side is saying "go for the one with the better trim, better color, better features".
Any suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated.
