Used, and assuming everything is normal, typical (expected from a SE and a XLE) and comparable (year, conditions, etc), with the exception that the SE has 20K miles and the XLE has 50K miles. Which one would you choose?

For the ones who have voted, could you please elaborate why you choose one over the other?

SE would have a stiffer suspension than the XLE.
XLE comes with more standard features than the SE.

I will do with less features and buy the SE with lesser miles.

If the SE is one of the newer ones that have the paddle shifters I would pick the XLE. Can't stand paddle shifters and I would not buy a car with them unless I could turn them off like in the new Genesis models.

Also I think the seat might be more comfortable in the XLE.

The SE will have a firmer suspension so if you want tighter handling on curves go with the SE.

I voted for SE. The XLE has slightly more features, but 30k miles is huge. The average driver puts about 12k miles on their vehicle per year. Even if you are above average, that's two years worth of mileage. In other words, let's say both cars lasted until 250k miles, and you drove 15k miles each year. The car with 20k miles on it will last you 15 years, 4 months. The car with 50k miles will only last you 13 years, 4 months.

Also, while both cars should still be under factory warranty, the car with 20k miles will come with a much longer warranty period.

The only thing that would possibly change my vote is if the XLE has the V6, and the SE has the 4 cylinder. The 4 cylinder is a good engine, but I'd go for the more powerful V6.

you have the choice to go full automatic or use the paddle shifters (or the column shifter).

The only cars I can think of that require you to use the paddle shifters are Ferraris (F1 transmission) and Lamborghinis (E-Gear) and maybe even with those you can go full auto

I would get the one with the lesser miles as long as it is comfortable.

Don't forget BMW's SMG manuals! They did have an "automatic" mode, but it shifts super rough. Better to just use the paddles.
