I would appreciate assistance walking through my purchase options. Which of these is the better purchase?
-Morrocan Red/Magnolia leather
-effectively immaculate, but very little use by elderly couple
-all records since new (one owner)
-mechanical condition unknown at this time (inspection required)
-2500 miles away (shipping required)
1990 Vanden Plas
-Diamond Blue/Grey leather
-VERY well maintained, garaged, superficial scratches on paint, ski slope requires refurbishing, but that is all it is lacking
-18 years of records, only two owners since new
-nearby, no shipping required, already inspected by my Jag mechanic
Shall I just go with the bird in the hand (XJ40)?
Or is the XJ81 worth the extra money and effort?
What are the negatives of owning the XJ81?
