A bit of a dilemma for me... have an option to buy a NEW 2014 RRS v6, question is pricing and any real big differences in the 15 or coming out 16. I feel I am getting a good price but you never know. I have attached the option sheet to the vehicle in question...
Thoughts on pricing, etc...??

First question is why is a new 2014 still sitting around? And what price did they give you.

Minor point price wise but in 2014 the destination was cheaper, should be either 895 or 925 based on production date. Rest of options are correct 2014 prices.

2016 changes are easy to find, but there were 2014.5, 2015, and 2015.5 changes to take into account depending on when this car was made. I will let more informed members describe the changes as I do not know them, or a search may help. Dealers have discounted 2015 HSEs on their lots, so you need to make sure it's a decent discount off MSRP to be happy with missing out on improvements and possibly having issues with a vehicle from the first production run.

Another factor is that you can't get chili red any more so depending on how much you like that color it may make getting the 2014 a good idea.

This was an MSO car and never registered... It will register as new and has 3,100 miles on the vehicle, as described by the dealership it was driven by the regional service person to go to dealership to dealership. I have confirmed through the State that it has never been registered anywhere before. As to the cost, they have knocked off $14,500 from the original price of $80,103, so $65,630 in the end...
I have owned the LR3, LR4 and my wife has an Evoque but I haven't ever had a RRS or RR... Just thinking it is time to get back in one...

Check the numbers - this isn't a good deal considering the 2016 are about to hit dealer show rooms, The updates and quality improvements since 2014 are not worth this discounted price. And unless you are in love with the Chile color (now discontinued) for the 2015 model year I would pass on this one.

My 14.5 V8SC dynamic I traded in at 10 months in and 6500 miles was a shade over 20K less than msrp. Unfortunately for me I had also paid the original 10K premium when I bought it originally, but that was never considered because by that time demand had subsided and the days of buying one of these cars and selling it back to dealer a year later fir the same price were long gone. But that gives you an idea of what the numbers are like. $14K is still a lot of money either way you look at it. The V6s have been more reliable than the v8s for the first year of this new model. Mine was a total lemon so eating a loss To go to the new car was pretty much my only reasonable option besides sell it and leave the brand. Tough call here, car seems to as trouble free as one would expect at this point.

To be honest we'd all prefer the new car if cost was not a factor, but it obviously always is and I'd be tempted. Even it's not a super deal, it's significantly less that that 3000 miles use. It's practically barely broken in. Even 10K miles is nothing to these cars.

If you decide to get this RRS, I would ask for an extended warranty to be included at no cost, since the TOPIx info says it is nearly 2 years into its warranty.
