Was considering this car about a year ago when JK was asking 320k, but what turned me off was the high mileage.

Good on JK, he full enjoys all his cars just like mhh!

change of thinking by me.

New thinking re tear up.

If an owner has worked hard,well new thinking is go for it and if there happy with the tear up,does it matter,worked hard and enjoy.

And what is a lot to sum is not a lot to others.

But i still can't handle the latte set who own the cars for the pose value.

Used to think 36k was a lot. Its really not if you enjoy them and frankly it seems on trade the "high mileage" penalty does not seem all that high.

and much of the tear up is always GST/LCT.

If there was no GST/LCT, what would you blame for depreciation then?

if you remember pre LCT cars like Porsche 911s,Rolls Royce Silver Spirits and high end Benzs,there depreciation level over the 1st ..3 years was low.
