BAT might not be the best place for used car values going forward

Some yes some no. I have seen some great deals on there but usually on cars I am not interested in.

For the “hot” market cars I would agree, no deals to be found.

I almost decided to go over my limit on this one though. Seemed like a great deal.

Is the only difference between that car and the new 718 the engine ?

Are they the same exact car ?

There are body style tweaks to the 718 that, to my mind, make it a much better looking car. Also, the infotainment system is much improved...

I do like the updates to the head and taillights esp. Infotainment is always going to be better on every newer model but you cant replace the 6cyl sounds!!

Also I think the lower front valance is better on the 981.
