Hi - sorry, another purchasing question and trying to get views to help me decide. Two cars, 4hs, same in every way except

Car A - Nov-15 65 reg, 23k miles, Mitsubishi dealer and approved used
Car B - Mar-16, 16 reg, 47k miles, Mitsubishi dealer but not approved used, £375 less than Car A

does none of this matter or is a 16 reg a better resale in future even with more miles?

I am maybe being too anal on this I realise.

thanks.

For that price difference there is definitely no advantage to car B, I'd go with A every time.

Thanks all, that was what I was thinking. I wasn't sure if there was a premium worth considering of one being a 2016 reg and the other a 2015 reg so thanks for the views.

Mine's a 64-plate registered in 2015. A 65-plate could be either 2015 or 2016
