2010 versus 2011 boxster?

Im trying to decide between 2 Boxsters. Which one would you choose? 2010 has 5k miles versus the 2011 with 25k miles. The 2011 is about $2k more. Both are certified and seem to have virtually the same options. Any help is appreciated.

personally I'd go for lower mileage. 96-99 Boxster is basically the same, 2000-2004 is more or less the same, same for 2005 to 2008 and 2009 - 2012. Within of each of these groups I would look for the least wear and tare. 20K less miles seems better to me if the asking prices are that close.

Check the rear tires. See what the replacement cost for the tire model would be.

Unless the 2011 has much nicer options go with the 2010.... Otherwise less miles is always better.

2010 with same options. Only 2011 worth taking in this situation is if its a Spyder!
