Would hate to loose the 6-cylinder, heated seats, and auto-retractable top by going for an older model
Nope...Those have always been available with the 2.8. All depends on how you like the old vs. new rump styling.
I agree with you re: Wood Trim. However, it might not be so easy finding an used 2.8 with the Power Top but NO Wood Trim...There was/is the "Premium Package" option, which (for 2.8s-~$950) included the P-Top & Wood Trim.
