To answer the OP's original question: if I was buying a car to use for x yrs before replacing ...as a family car for ex, I think value for money and avoiding the initial depreciation is important... A loaded ex demo under warranty makes sense when you are talking 20%-40% off list price... If I was ordering a "special" car for myself to keep indefinitely, assuming its a currently produced model, I would want to spec it and own from new ( I don't trust people to take care of it like I do).
