Low mileage manual with good service history and not leaking. Get past that and you are on the home stretch...

Can I ask why you prefer the 2010?
Besides the older n400 style sills and elephant ear mirrors nothing changed between the year. Specially in your case since you want v12, or S, sills anyway.

actually that was for the 2010.5 update, also the cats are different so it sounds different, and the sport pack rims are also different

Plus, I think he's aware of that car- he mentioned high owner count and admittedly, 7 owners is a lot of owners.

Didn't know the cats are different in 2010 vs 2009 even though both have the 4.7L engine. Does it sound deeper and better?

My 2009 has 200 cells and still retain the back box but the bypass valves are always open and it sounds like a beast... I should try to borrow my friends Go-Pro and record a little segment

So the 2009 sounds louder than a 2011-2016 model?

Although the N420 model does sound spectacular in comparison with a regular Vantage due to the specific back box. It gets my vote for a gen II model for sound and collective recognition.
