Considered the new S5 (Supercharged version). But that would not be until 2010 or so. Long time away . Even tossed around the idea of the new redesigned 135i (if it has a newer impoved body design).

would be interested in a 135i if the new body style is better than this one.

Debating weather to jump ship to Audi. I looked at the A5 and I was very impressed, but the sheer driving dynamics of a BMW are worth staying. Not sure yet. Hopefully save up for an RS5 or a 335, which ever I can afford.

Haha I've seen you on A5OC. I've considered it too, but trust me, the longer I stay on that site, the more scared I am of switching over to Audi. The reliability issues are seriously scary, especially with the new cases of engine failures after 6K miles. Not to mention, without Drive Select, the driving experience is pretty underwhelming...

Yep, I'm on there. I wanted to get an A5 back when they came out but Audi delayed it 6 months(2nd time). I wasn't going to wait anymore.

Wow, In that case, I won't be going anywhere. My next car will most likely be a 335i, Do you know the cause of the engine failure after 6k? That's just ridiculous!

e46 m3 or e92 335i as DD
keep evo and convert to stock framed turbo matched to my 2.3L and some e85 tune for torque fun (another DD)

buy a 97 supra as a project/weekend car (76mm turbo, built 3.0L(10,000rpm anyone?))

Down the road, if I'm fortune enough to open a practice, then GT3 RS, Aston martin DBS

By all means I think you should go test drive the car, but see if you can get one with Drive Select, because it's supposed to make a huge difference. The stock A5s steering is just too loose for me and doesn't seem like it has precision, especially after driving BMWs for years.

With regard to some of the issues that have deterred me from the car -
Engine issues
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...153/index.html
Jeff S and BlueA5 both seemed to have the issue

Lots of vibration issues
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...286/index.html
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...521/index.html

Engine cuts out
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...300/index.html

The clutch seems to be a common problem
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...279/index.html

General problems -
http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...846/index.html

Obviously BMW isn't without it's lemons too (that last one I feel bad for, that's gotta be a lemon), but the number of problems BMWs have seem to be concentrated on certain particular issues (say, 1 or 2), rather than general problems with the car overall. Just my 0.02, I'm probably staying with BMW, or I may lease the A5 (it's just too good looking of a car), no matter how horrible their lease rates are.

My original post was E39 M5. But, after some thought... I may get a lot of shit for this but I have always wanted:

Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 (AMG CLK-32)
Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 (500+hp in an SUV)
Honda Cr-z
or my original plan E39 M5!

I want something with a comfortable ride for my next car and even though that is about 4 years away I'm thinking:

A4 2.0T
IS250
MKZ

I'm also thinking about maybe moving to a SUV in that case I would look at:

CX-7
GLK
LR2
MKX


Really I have no damn idea what my next car will be until it is in my driveway.

I have a dream garage. Many are practical and attainable, some are absurd.

Germans:
- Porsche 930 and 964 Turbo
- E24 BMW M6/635CSi
- E28 BMW M5
- E30 BMW M3
- E34 535i
- E36 M3 Lightweight
- E46 BMW M3 (only in Laguna Seca blue)
- S54-engined BMW M Coupe
- Late-60s Mercedes-Benz 280SL "Pagoda"
- Mercedes-Benz 500E (W124)

Brits:
- Triumph TR3A and TR4A (w/Surrey Top)
- Aston Martin DB2

Italians:
- '84 Ferrari 288 GTO (though I would also be happy with the less-costly 308/328GTS or 348 GTB)
- Alfa Romeo 75/Milano (one of the V6s or the 1.8T)

Americans:
- '68 Corvette
- Duesenberg SJ Mormon Meteor
- Auburn 851 Boattail Speedster

I LOVE the new GLK. I just dont really think its a guys car. I can't believe a college kid is thinking about a Lincoln for his next car though. Granted I think the MKZ is a good looking car, but for my Grandma, not me.
