Mate, good luck with your choice because it is a hard one. I went through the same pain over the last few weeks. I finally decided to go with the AWD - Ghia. My choice was based on several things
a) Safety - my young family are going to be riding in it all the time with the missus the main driver. The dynamic stability on the AWD gives a lttle bit better chance of recovery if a sticky situation arises.
b) We are soon to move to the sunshine coast of queensland - new lands to explore for us !!! Not reeally knowing the area I thought a little "soft-roading" weekend adventures might just be the ticket
c) resale values - Although I am not sure if the AWD is better or not in this regard, I thought for this area of Australia it might be a stronger resale point (what do you think ?).
I guess what i am saying is look how and what you are going to do with it and see if you really need to spend the extra or not. A PS2 in the back for the kids (yea right as if the kids are likely to get a turn - LOL) might be better money spent.
Good luck with the decision?
What colour are you going for? - just curious. I was tossing up between the Indiana and the white. Fianlly settled on white as I reckon they just look the best.
