Purchasing Advice...

Hey guys...
This is my first post and I was hoping i could get some advice from ppl who own the gen 1 is... I have several options here in florida on wagons and ive pretty much settled on a couple that stood out to me...

1st and most interesting is a: 2004 Lexus is 300 Sportcross in white with 22k original miles verified by carfax. its a private sale and the owner is asking 16,500$ I know that blue book in excellent shape is 15,400$ but would bid him at time of purchase...

2nd is a: 2002 Lexus is 300 Sportcross in silver with 74k miles that i have not checked carfax on yet... its a dealer and the asking price is 10,999$... im betting i can get it cheaper...

and there are more available if i checked...

what im asking: is it worth it to spend the xtra money on a ultra low mileage car or should i spend less on a higher mileage car and have more money for upgrades? i sort of know what the answer is but would like to hear your thoughts...
thank you all in advance...
