Please help me decide belween CALI's

Hello Friends,
Trying to buy a Cali for myself and wife for occasional driving and dinners etc. Never have raced and probably never will - only quick take-offs from lights. Very rare spirited driving. Upgrading from an 02 Maserati Coupe F1 that I owned for 7 years. Had some good punch but towards the end got tired of interior breaking down, ****ty sound, and started to feel sluggish (after driving a friends Gallardo specially). I think 0-60 is important to me.

I am split between two Cali's. Both red/tan - both at 18K miles+/-

1. 2013 Base - No options that I can see - not even heated/memory seats - does have Daytona seats. 123K but its a "30". one owner immaculately kept LA car with 2 years of maint left. Bone stock

2. 2010 Loaded with carbon/LED steering, carbon fiber insert, tan w/black insert Daytona's. built in radar and blacked out roof and black Ferrari rims . red calipers. Car is a looker for sure. also has an Italian stripe on hood - if you search rossocorsa on fleabay you'll find it - 107K negotiated price on this one

I like the looks of 2010 and specially the red calipers/heated-memory seats-the two-tone (controversial cause wife didn't care for them too much). And finally - the LED CF steering that makes it look like 458's steering

2013 is just newer and more HP. Probably will hold up better too.

Please help me decide.

Based on what you have written it appears you like the 2nd car better? If the car has service records and the PPI(Pre-purchase Inspection) passes then get it. The 1st car sounds very attractive from the point of single ownership with great care.

The 30 is quite a bit quicker and will handle better. If 0-60 matters to you, get the 30.

There are dozens of Californias available. Why are you limited to these two?

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Hmmm! Found a 10 with everything I wanted here locally in Houston and bought it yesterday. Identical to the 10 I was originally looking at but only 12K miles so can?t be happier

You know what - I realized that! I WANTED a Rosso-Cuio (Red/Beige) combo and was dead set on a car with LED CF steering, hence limited choices. Its weird cause I wanted to sit in one before buying online and the only dealer with a Cali I could locate had exactly what I was searching for couple months - for a price I was comfortable at, so it was a no-brainer.
