Looking at upgrading to a carbon tt bike and have narrowed it down to the following:

 

Cervelo p3 2010 with Dura Ace or Argon 18 E-114 with SRAM red setup!

 

any advise!?

Aerodynamics: I would give the P3 the egde here. Although The P3 is not the most aero Cervelo anymore, it is still a seriously well engineered & tunnel tested machine.

Weight: Not important at all, I would guess P3 would be lighter.

 

Looks: Personal opinion. Very even for me, but once again a slight edge to a white P3. 2008 & 2009 P3s had bland paint jobs, but the white 2010 one looks excellent.

 

P3 has a lifetime warranty. Can't see what the warranty on the Argon is on their website. Life warranty always nice if you are buying new.

 

Gruppo: Uber gruppo would be Shimano Di2. Next would be SRAM with RTC shifters. If not going with R2C shifters, a 7800 Dura Ace gruppo would be best bang for the buck - looks great & money saved could go towards a nice bar (or Zipp RTC shifters for Shimano).
