Looks good but rough riding.
Looking at the AT4 model so we'll be good to go there. Thanks for the advice

I love the current E63S more than the M5 so the wagon is just the icing on the cake. Add on top that AMG engines sound better, has a RWD drift mode, and the car as a whole is more understated than the RS6, and I prefer the classy looks, its definitely my choice.

I'm gonna try to check out the RS6 when it comes out, but in the end I think I'd prefer an E63S, plus the rumors for the RS6 is that they'll be limiting sales/production.
The Benz looks like any other Benz of the past 10 years while the Audi looks mean, menacing and amazing. Never been a fan of either but RS6 over E63S and it's not even close.

Never said I didn't care for the Audi's styling, its one of its best features. I said I don't care for the touch screen and all gloss black interior (one big deal breaker especially with my slight OCD), and I don't care for the general "Audi-ness" of it, aka, understeer and engine being too far up front, weak exhaust, lack of RWD mode, etc.

I like the way the Benz looks. Its classy and understated, I could care less if it looks like the past 10 years of Merc wagons, in my opinion its a handsome and understated vehicle, and nobody knows it has a fantastic AMG V8 under the hood unless they're a car enthusiast, plus I've driven the E63S and prefer it to that of an M5 and previous RS7, and will likely prefer it to the new RS6/7 based on reviews and would be very happy to get one, thus why it made my list, it checks off all of my boxes. Just not a fan of Audi's.

I have no idea what will replace the Hellcat. Everything is too expensive. Would love a C8 or even C7Z, but then I still need a new daily since I DD my Hellcat. Don't wanna daily my beat to shit 200k+ mi Acura. I'd hate that real quick. (Not that it's a bad car)

I've had this IS for close to a year now, this is the first series of car that I've owned 2 of. The first IS I bought in 2014 and had it for a few years. The only service was replacing brakes, tires and oil changes. Aside from one recall I bought it back in April. The braking is actually one of the high points of the vehicle.

RC-F in orange = Good looking car, but under powered. Maybe if used are stupid cheap when I'm in the market, I'll reconsider.

Alfa = Too unreliable

C8 = Not a daily driver for PA winter. (I DD my Hellcat)

Viper = Again, too much $. No baller & not a daily.

GT-R = Hard pass. Driven a few. Just don't like em.

ZL1 = I couldn't get comfy in a 6th Gen Camaro. Maybe try again later, but when my Hellcat traps a few MPH more & has 4 doors, why would I bother?

Assuming you are talking about the Gen2 body style IS-F 2006-2013 RWD with the 6 speed manual 5.0 V8....and no, they aren't cheap. My new(-ish) Gen3 is less expensive than a IS-F from 2008, crazy; but those are highly sought after.

Depending on mileage you're looking between $18k - 32K for an almost 10 year old model.

Only new V8 sedan they make would be the GSF. It's my favorite car that Lexus currently makes by far, but shares the same drivetrain as the RCF, so you will probably be disappointed.

You're right! My bad. I personally had never seen one but thought I had read somewhere that they made a 6 speed manual but I'm wrong; 8 speed auto only.

Yup. There were rumors that Lexus was going to release an IS F this year, but it got scrapped. To touch on what Conissah stated, the GS F is bad ass, it's just a bigger car all the way around. I'd love to have those seats and the larger infotainment screen in my IS.

I wouldn't be happy with said GS. The search continues!

I have a 2013 IS, final model year of the 2nd gen. Besides a dead battery when I lived in a cold state, the car has been mechanically flawless. I just do routine maintenance, no worries like with the Bimmer.

And personally I feel the refreshed 2nd gen IS has aged incredibly well. What a cleanly styled, timeless design. I also think this current 3rd gen IS has aged very well.

Test drove a 2020 Ram 1500 Bighorn, night edition. Nice ride, and very comfortable. I always liked pickup trucks. However, don’t need something that big. Second on the list is a 2020 Accord Sport. I’m waiting to see if Honda is going to redesign the taillights. Third, my top choice is a Audi A6. Love it’s simplicity. I think I’m leaving the BMW brand. BMW lost what once made it special, it’s driving dynamics.

F90, there are some pretty sweet lease deals. I am afraid of almost any new car out of warranty.

The ZL1 is my work car, its replacement would be too.
