I want certain aspects of my car to be what I want but to be honest once you have a car and love it some of those things didn't matter. I wanted a white e46 for my track build but could only find tiag silver that I got and decided price and other things were way more important than color. I would rather have extra money in my pocket then pay extra for an example that's perfect.

The M3 feels special and maybe I'll come back to one when looking for a second car some day.


My "history" of cars starting from back in 2004:
- '04 G35 Coupe
- '07 335xi
- '08 m3
- '08 Bentley GT
- '10 Carrera C4S Cab
- '11 s/c M3

Before people chime in with the "did your parents buy those?". Just took care of the G coupe as I was in high school.

Anyway, I have had a good amount of BMWs and maybe a change would be nice. My commute has changed a lot and although I love the DCT, it is definitely less important now a days with my highway driving. My commute will only grow so comfort is a big factor. I would love massaging seats & 600whp lol. I think I'll have to just wait until I can drive the new E63 and get a better drive in the F10 M5. M cars just have a special feeling to them. AWD is a plus as I work 365 days a year and I wouldn't have to get a winter car.
that's pretty crazy, I've had the same first three cars as you, on the m3 currently, wonder if I'll have a Bentley next, lol. it's sounds like comfort is a big factor for you, I'm a bimmer guy all the way, how bout goin with a 650 gran coupe, im sure you be able to get one nicely optioned out and the tuning potential is there plus it'll be more comfortable than a aggressively tuned m car. Or go straight to the m6 gran coupe, such a beautiful car.

not offended, your post just made no sense and apparently is based on no real data

anecdotal "my friends shop" etc isn't real data, you could say the same thing about BMW or almost any other brand. IE subframe failures, bearing failures, SMG issues, bushing failures etc for BMW

I am sorry that your audi has had many issues. my bmw had a ton of issues, and now I own no bmws. that said, it wouldn't make me say that bmw is mechanically inferior to other equal german manufacturers. I just had a bad one.

Then why are you on a bmw forum lol?!?! I kid

I want to add that my post is just my opinion. He is asking. And I am giving my feedback. I am sure Audi is great but if it came down to a bmw or audi OR even a mercedes. It would always be BMW since ive owned like 10 different bmws since I was 18 and I feel more comfortable with them than the others. Plus BMW is #1 luxurious german brand out of audi and mercedes. so most people know which brand they like more

It's your money and your opinion that counts being that you have to drive it BUT if I were in your situation I would get the Panamera. It's beautiful as far as I'm concerned. Luxury all day, Power when you need it. The simple fact it's based on the 911.. H.a.m

Panamera Turbo. Simply best car in that list.

If are getting an AMG, why not a new CLS63. GTS is an option as well. New S8 hauls the mail too.

None of us are qualified to judge these companies in terms of their engineering. I believe Audi has come a long way and is on par with BMW, Mercedes or any other high end company. Even Tesla is starting to prove they can rub shoulders with the big German players.


But..........I agree the Panamera is the top choice here. It's unfortunately priced the highest too but in the used market they are very good buys.
