Soon to be owner, seeking advice

I'm looking for some advice, there's two mazdas in my area that are similarly price. It is a matter of mileage vs year; 2006 with 112k kms vs 2008 with 135k kms.

Both have maintained well, although the 2008 guy is an original owner who says he always went to the dealer. Both have identical features.

Personally I would go with the 08 with more miles.

Due to so little information, I base my concept on this (which is true for a LOT of cars nowadays):
It's a younger car with more miles; meaning they were probably 90% highway miles, which are EXTREMELY easy on a car.

I was leaning towards that too, and I also believe the 07+ models come with AUX already installed which is kind of a big deal for me.

There are plenty of ways around that, but that is indeed a minor plus as well.
