hi

Just about made my decision to pull the trigger on 570s spider but wanted to get some thoughts on options I've selected... perhaps any views on the options (resale potential), and also what people feel afair price would be on the suggested cars.

Firstly is this curucao blue from authorized dealer.


Carfax:


Literally no carbon on this one (not sure if that impacts resale)... very low mileage but have read mixed feeling whether that is good or bad...

Was previously corporate vehicle... big no no? Perhaps it was a tester model for journalists? In addition no records of mclaren service until the one lietrally just completed by dealer in Feb 2020.

Also track telemetry option may mean it was ran hard on a track for those few miles it has?

Secondly, a totally different animal is a high mileage (20k):


203616

Carfax:


Checked with mclaren houston and they did do a 2 year service on this one (although not recorded on carfax)... maybe a problem with warranty extension?

Any concerns on 20k mile plus for resell? Although more than 20k difference in price may account for that. I plan to do 3-4k miles per year.

Any thoughts on fair value on either / both would be appreciated also.

Thanks in advance

The orange one with the higher mileage must be a well sorted out car and I wouldn't be worried about any issues on it if it has that many miles on it I currently have 16000 on my spider and haven't had any issues either that would probably be the one I want to go with if I were in the market


blue one with that combo just wont be a good resale a way more limited buyer market for that color along with almond interior

Agree with this assessment above. Don't have much detail on the options of the higher mileage one, but don't be scared of mileage. A well sorted car by now, and the fact that is actually has been driven is not a bad thing. A 2018 Spider for that price with 20K miles is pretty good, hoping it has some of the key options like front nose lift and interior carbon.

The odd interior on the blue one will definitely be tougher for resale, but some other specs are really nice (MSO Titanium Exhaust & Track Telemetry).

Don't worry too much about exterior carbon. If a car has it, great... But the palladium looks awesome, and it's going to be a lot cheaper to repair if needed.

I would definitely go for the orange one especially since it has full body clear bra that's worth 5 to 6 Grand by itself

Worth saying the orange does have some very slight trim damage on the roof... both passenger and driver side black seal covers have cracked- is this a known problem with roof folding mechanism? Seems it will be covered / replaced under warranty (but prob mean 2 weeks in the shop).

that sucks about the trim i would find out cost and try to negotiate even lower on price.

I have 16k on mine and no issues coulda been a careless car wash person and rag got snagged or something

The blue is a nice spec but unless it strikes a chord in you, it might be tough to sell or even trade when the time comes.

Either way, this is gonna be great!

Best price I can get the blue for is 162... 144 for the orange (even with trim damage)

144 is a hell of a deal for a spider imho.
pretty sure same top on all 12c and 650 models spiders so should be able to find trim pieces easily

Congrats!!! I was looking at that one as well and was wondering. I was also considering the Ceramic Blue in Mclaren Charlotte which I fell in love with. Sold my 911 Turbo and now really ready to move onto a 570s, preferably a spider
