Anyone know if significant differences? I'm debating a 2012 at local dealer vs deposit on a 2013 which I can fully spec and get delivered in 5 to 8 months realistically speaking from what I was told..

thanks

All 2012 cars will be upgraded to 2013 spec (25 more HP) for free. Only difference will be button door openers instead of swipe and you can get optional front lift kit (not sure price) and an optional different front bumper for 30k from MSO. 2013 MSRP is higher, too. If you are getting the 2012 at anything close to list or below, get it as it is an amazing deal for what will be identical to 2013 car's increased performance.

so most of the updates will be software? I think I can live w/out the lift as it doesn't sit lower than my Gallardo spyder (with lift)

my other concern is being able to spec my own, the pre-owned (400 miles) missing some carbon pieces that I like plus has standard exhaust :/

Yes it is software. Tough choice on the spec. Have you priced it all out to see how much you'd save?

not on 2013.. but roughly based on 12 pricing I'd be somewhere $293K vs $269K current MSRP + price...

Hmm. That is tough. If you're planning to keep the car several years, may as well spec one. Or maybe wait a bit to see if you can find another 2012 closer to your ideal spec? Otherwise, take this one and start enjoying the car sooner.

Get the car you really want....and that may mean getting the car you can get sooner. It is hard to underestimate the power of instant gratification. :)

Agreed.. tough spot to be in, cause the only other one I know is identical to my spec but black instead of titanium silver is my friend's who's on book for the spider. From what dealer said they won't get any before end of year, which begs the question whether I should wait since even if I spec one will be 5-8 months.
