If you got rid of your car right now what woudl you get?

Other than a BMW...

I'd get either a G8 GXP or an SRT8 Challenger or maybe look for a used C63 AMG.

I know gas prices are an issue right now but I miss having a V8.

When I bought my car a 911, Mustang gt, a mini and a ford raptor were on my list.

The mini has been removed.

I would either get a 997.2 or a Boss 302...or if I could steal a z06 it might be fun for about 6 months

As much as I love my car, I definitely wouldn't be going with another BMW. I just don't find them to be special anymore. I'll be keeping this thing until I can get my hands on a CLK Black Series.

Ohhhhhh other than a Bimmer...Gotta go with...Nothing. Nothing out there for similar money that I would want. An S4, but that's another $15Gs from my 135. Thought about a 4door STI...but naaaaah.

I'm good with what I got. Anyone else feel the same. Similar money I mean?

On my budget, a 5.0 or 2012 Beetle (GTI MkVI if were talking about what's available now)

Below 100k: C63 coupe, M3, 997 GTS, or maybe an S4.

Below 200k: R8 V10 or 997 GT3.

Below 500k: Aventador

>500k: 599 GTO two-tone matte black with a matte dark silver roof and blacked out tails.

Basically just listed all of my want-now cars lol.

For me it would depend on the reason why I was getting rid of my car. If its because of economic reasons I would downgrade to a used 328. If its time for a new ride it will be the C63 coupe next year.

New 5.0 would be tempting. Other than that... maybe an S4 or a used C63

Whatever it was it would have to have comfortable/supportive seats, a spare, get decent gas mileage, rear wheel drive based AWD, a hatchback SUV/SAV type, and be able to tow a small trailer.

I haven't tried the seats but so far the Infinity EX is the only thing that piques my interest.
