I'm keeping my G8 GT til the wheels fall off but I would consider the brand new RWD Kia Stinger sport sedan coming to the US next month.
A bit too round and bland for me, I much prefer angular aggressive body lines. What I'm truly after is a CTS-V wagon but their value has actually increased over this past year.That is a cool car.
What I am considering is a 2008 Audi S4 Quattro Cabriolet. 4.2 liter V8, all-wheel drive, 6-speed manual, powered top convertible.
Almost exactly like this: https://dxsdcl7y7vn9x.cloudfront.net/291370/790786CC-7891-48A1-B525-D18033708D47_1.jpg
Also AWD is to be available. It's not a horrible choice.I'm keeping my G8 GT til the wheels fall off but I would consider the brand new RWD Kia Stinger sport sedan coming to the US next month.
*Supposedly*, according to Consumer Reports (non-profit) Audi quality took a marked step upwards about 5 or so years ago in their survey. That was what got me to look at what Audi had that might interest me. It has maintained that level. Not quite up to the Japanese manufacturers level..... I know they're more expensive to fix, but since I can do a lot of stuff myself, I figure it might not be that bad and hoping to benefit from some depreciation on the used.... I've never owned a German car, only domestic and Japanese (for the wife).You better open up your wallet and smash open your piggy bank with any Audi but especially with an older model with miles or buy one with a great warranty and get rid of it with no longer under warranty.
Go price out new headlights for an 2005 S4 LOL.
I took a Mosport track ride in an older ISF at full bore w an instructor and they are very well engineered.Agree on the Audi comments. Amazing cars...but unless you have a very good warranty or want to leave your wallet open, they're not something I'd contemplate. But...that's just my opinion. Bought my wife a new V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee last November. Audi Q5 gave it a run for it's money...especially the SQ5, thing was a BEAST! But in the end, I couldn't get over their reliability and maintenance costs. Brakes and oil changes on them are ridiculous.
If it were me, I'd be all over any of the following:
1. Lexus ISF
2. CTS V (gen 2 or 3)
3. Chevy SS
4. Infinity Q50AWD or Q70 AWD
Let's see how long you feel that way when you watch your mph continue to go up but your ET stays the same and you start to slide down the fast list..It would have to be an M6 though. Nothing else.
LOL. Do some reading man. And that OBM widebody V wagon isn't a Hennessey car either.I'd like a Hennessey.
