I'd agree on the NSW dentist's car. Looks good, but perhaps a tad over-priced. No doubt he'd negotiate once it's been on the market for a while (or even sooner).
There seem to be a lot of June '99 built cars in Australia (including mine!). I'm not sure, but I'm guessing there were a couple of 'main batches' shipped here. I've seen a few '00 and '03 cars, and not much in between.
It doesn't take much to 'facelift' an older car, if that's what you want to do. Many of the 'options' depend on what boxes were ticked by the original purchaser, regardless of year model. Mine has rain-sensing wipers for eg (which I thought all Aus-delivered cars had...). Not sure what the auto-lights or ICE is, but steering wheel, headlights, 16:9 and Navi are all pretty easy to do.
And don't under-estimate what it will cost to bring any of these cars up to 'satisfactory'. My car was fairly "good-to-go" when I bought it, but I have still spent over $7k without doing anything major at all.
