Would a 2011 no hole, 9C1 with around 60k be a better purchase than a 2014 with only spotlight with around 70k?
Both clean no incidents.
Both are around the same price.

Which one would be better recommended for a daily driver all seasons?

Well one consideration is on the 14 you still have some powertrain warranty left and some extended warranties on common failure parts. IF you like the style of the interior of the 14 I would go with that. If we are talking same price point on both 14 wins.

Spotlight hole an easy fix for any body shop.

Thats not really enough info just the miles does not tell you the story, was it a 24/7 patrol car? or something that had highway miles put on? Get the engine hours and also any service history you can, believe me 70k on patrol duty isn't 70k of a civilian car by any means....

As a side note I believe we all agree by now that 2011 is the fastest of the breed.... :roll:

Yes, of course, that is a well established fact that no one should try to refute in any way. :?

14+ cars are soooo much better. If you don’t buy the 14, pm me. I might know someone interested

I would never pick a 14 and up car because of the electric steering and column shift, but everyone has their opinion.

Kevin what don't you like about the electric steering? The fact that it has been failing? Or is there a performance difference?
