    Test drive one without coilovers before seeing the 2nd one, so you have a base-line for the ride quality etc. Don't think you'd get the 3rd one for £16k either, even with the miles. Obviously, the 1st one is the best (newer, lower miles, buckets) but are you willing to pay the extra for the extras? Bare in mind that the s-tronic will save you on upgrading the clutch if you plan on going down the 'stage 2+' remap route.

    Depends on important the buckets are to you. Out of that list I'd take the 2nd car, and allow 2k for buckets.

    Personally I wouldnt touch a car that has been mapped unless I knew all the history and previous owner

    Repair or restoration is easily achievable on damaged or worn leather and a lot cheaper than getting the seats retrimmed also you can have custom colours, here's a pic of a restoration I finished today on some mr2 seats these were over 10 years old badly worn and were also cream when I started, the end result was a burnt orange and black two tone leather and looked brand new. image.jpg
