IMHO they are 2 completely different cars on 2 different platforms. the 12' is an S197 with 425 HP V8, 6 speed, with solid rear axle. the 15'-18' are an S550 chassis with independent rear suspension and upgraded interior. TBH the 12' would call to me. with the extra HP and available upgrades so you choose (yes, the S550 has those as well) would be a great car for a DD. other costs such as insurance, gas mileage would come into play as well. pick the one you enjoy driving more and haggle the **** out of the price, especially if your in no hurry to purchase. good luck

Lots of bolt on goodies...
