My 02 GG SportCross still serving flawlessly with 224k miles
(Though I did wish for a manual and a little more oomph now and then)
Couldn't find an Audi BMW or CTS-V wagon for price and trust,

So I bought another SportCross. (now have 2 :)

The "new" MS SportCross has just 15k miles
(So new and tight now)

So now comes the question::

Drive bone stock another 220k like last one?
W55 manual swap N/A as if built Original stock 2005?
R154 or AR5 swap in case I add power later?
Or is it a crime just to drive it more than to shows?
Implying should Store / preserve it with low miles?

I agree, do the mods and such on the old one. That new one sounds like an incredible find if it only has 15k miles! Typically with mods you end up going into the motor and buffing it up anyways. No need to do new engine work on a new engine, go for the old and redo it!

Unless you are going for a showroom type look for the new one, then obviously drive the old and keep the new low miles and protect paint and such.
