Mileage matters more.

Mine was in pristine condition with only 26K miles. It was a garaged vehicle that was barely driven.

His car has over 100K on it, not to mention the wear and tear of those miles.

Not only did I make out, but I got a deal. The original price was $15,8 and I paid $10,7+ TTL.

Both had stage 1 on them. That 100k car you got was well overpriced. I'm glad you think it was OK but even you have to admit your timing was lousy.
He thinks that there's value in paying $13K for a 2-year old car w/ over 100K miles on it. Putting 100K miles on a car in two years is not your average wear and tear. That's beyond daily driver type wear. There's no value in buying a car with an excess of 100K miles unless you are getting it much cheaper than blue book.
