I wanted a LR RWD but didn't have the means to purchase til recently. I will soon have the funds and found there are still some LR RWD cars available. My dilemma: buy the 2018 RWD with a "low VIN" (around 75,XXX) or an AWD with a much "higher" VIN (200,XXX) for several $K more. Presumably a much higher VIN corresponds to a much more recent build date which I would think in general corresponds to better build quality (not to mention a car sitting in a lot for weeks versus one in a lot for potentially 6+ months). The greater acceleration/handling of the AWD is not a factor. Anyone see any negatives in going with the much lower VIN RWD if any are still available in 3-4 weeks?
