    The AFS headlight option is $1983 and as you said the lift is $4630.

    I was made to believe that the AFS is mandatory in order to keep the headlight alignment correct (so it conforms to DOT), but like you noted, the G has the lift w/o AFS

    Thanks. Don't know if you could live without the lift. Love it.

    About sign on a 2012 and reading this worries me. Car is at official dealer and comes with 2y approved warranty; low mileage 7000kms.

    Should I wait and find a 2013 or newer?

    Newer will hold value better but if you don't care about that get the 12 and drive the wheels off it :)

    No IMO. Especially if it still has the pops and crackles. These cars are built well. This is why they offered 7y warranty. Peeps like me were sick of the stupid stuff breaking. LOVE MY 2011. What I would do is have an independent source evaluate the car if you are buying it sight unseen.

    I wouldn’t sweat the years other than trying to find 2012+ bc chances are they were consistently maintained due to the 7yr maintenance program being included. But if the right spec/deal came along on a 10/11 and the PPI was clean, wouldnt sweat the year.
