Oh, my bad. Just read the post and I now see M5 was not an option.

X5 is that fast? I think it is too expensive anyways. I have to check. I said $78K is the absolute maximum. Does that thing handle?
Oh wait too, you just said nevermind Lol. I figure that is way too expensive. I really think it is the Q50 RS!

Agreed!.....but the M4 is one sweet ride. Enjoy it while you have it.

Honestly it is always getting looks and compliments. Other than that 10% of the time it is fun to drive. 90% of the time this thing is a literal pain in the butt. For $75k you can either get a fast 4 door or a luxury 4 door put apparently not both. As stated even with the tighter seats the RS7 would be to my liking but all we can do is dream, right? probably the only reason they even let me drive it is I pulled up in a late model M4. It is an incredible car if you are a big baller. The M4 is not so incredible unless you are under 20 or just don't mind being punished. I would like to go with the Q50 RS AWD loaded if someone could please tell me what to expect for money with the information I provided on the first page. Thank you


I edited this. Of course the RS7 is what I really want. It does have 4 doors. Big plus for me too. It is super duper. I can try to find a CPO. I could actually buy a new one but it will put me in a bad spot. I imagine that payment plus all my other bills I am going to be nearly maxed out. That is something a college kid would do not a grown man. I mean I do not think that is not a good idea just to love your car. So I will have to find a CPO.Would you guy's agree that the Audi RS7 is in a different class than a Q50? I mean I do not want to go spending 80 grand for a used car that is nearly the same thing. I tried it and it gets up and takes off like a plane. Plus I can actually put people in the back seats. I really don't know what to do. Get the Q50 and save my money or get a used RS7 for a lot more money. The M5 is out either way because I am tired of RWD. I am good enough to drive it in the snow but it is a huge pain. The X5 is nice but I do not think that handles.

The RS7 is not in a different class but a different galaxy than a Q50 any version. Just look at the interior, the diamond tucked high end leather etc. from a performance comparison....it rubs shoulders with the likes of most 2 door super coupes...and extremely easy to launch. An S7 is awesome....an RS7 is outrageous. I'm surprised that one is already available for 75K....now the other side
It is truly the ultimate sleeper. No one gives it a second look or a rev at the stop light....but like ya said.....if you want to act like a grown man, not a kid then that's not a consideration. Good luck with your selection

Actually, It is $89K. A lot better than $160K though. It has 9,000 miles. Clean. Blue. I think I know what I will be trading for Monday Honestly I do not street race but that is a beautiful car. I can only Imagine what the R8 V10 Plus does LOl. The Q50 is also a very nice car but not the same thing. Thank you guy's for helping me make up my mind.

German cars are status symbols for the most part. The build quality in terms of materials tends to be better but I just can't come to grips with the price differences. The S4 is going to cost alot more than a RS and Audi leases are very expensive. So if you're considering that you're going to end up paying close to $1000 per month to lease a new S4.

No I was looking at leasing a CPO RS7. Forget it. It is $2,300 a month Lol. I do not need to go that fast. I hear it is 2.8S 0-60. Plus I don't even really like the interior. I imagine a loaded Q50 RS lease for 39 months is under $600? That is a huge difference. I also do not want to be in the shop all the time. As far as nice interior quite frankly I think the top line MKZ or even the G90 is nicer than the RS7. You cannot compare the RS7 it is nearly a super car. $2,300 a month for a used car is not even a consideration of mine. $1,000 for the S4 is not either. As I imagine the Q50 RS is faster anyways. It is not slow. Should beat a RCF. It is stupid because I do not race anyways. Before when I was here I was being a jerk and outright lying. I apologized for that. So for reasonably priced cars I do not know If I would get the Q50 RS,G90, or MKZ. What do you guys think between those? The M4 payment is too high want to get out of it. Plus it is really not a car you want to drive 1-1/2 hours in bumper to bumper traffic everyday. The car is tiny and not comfortable. Plus you have to be careful the Pedal is very touchy and the steering is very quick. I honestly loved the Q50 even though I was being a sore thumb here until it self destructed. I know that happened to a few of them but I have read DAS, the displays,brakes and everything is fixed now. I guess I just have to drive each of those three a few times and see which I like best. I seriously do not need 4 seconds except for bragging rights and certainly not 2.8. I hardly ever go fast in the car or above 70MPH. Honestly a 5 second car is fine for me other than I cannot brag to people. I am done with that though. I think you can all see I am being much more polite. There is really no reason to be "That guy" in life and I have come to realize it. For that matter I doubt I will ever race anyone period. I just have to decide which $600 a month car I like. The m4 would be worth the $1,200 a month if it was a completely different kind of car. IMO all it really is, is a high end STI. That is just my opinion. I would rather have the nice roomy interior if I had to choose over speed. In that regard the MKZ and G90 have it covered. They would not be considered slow either I don't think. I mean in the 80's 5 seconds was a super car. I am just forgetting about speed and looking at other aspects of the car now. Any other recommendations? Sorry for such a long post too.

I have a quick reference to interior space attached.

6'4" and titanium rods in my spine, I definitely purchase cars based on comfort first. So I sympathize.

This document use to have alot more cars in the columns but I was narrowing them down, until I ultimately purchased the Red Sport two months ago.

I personally think Lincolns are Hideous I wouldn't even Consider the MKZ. The G90 is much larger but it looks good. The G90 is more in line with the Q70 than a Q50. If you're going to pay 70K and want something larger but quick have you looked at a used GS-F?
