G37X more bang for the buck
Second is the C300
Last the A5...I love audi but I just hate the 2.0T engine and the fact that the I'm not a fan of the A5 look it looks way to big almost as big as an E Class coupe. Not a fan of the electric handbrake...I come from Audi and I these B8 A4/A5 are huge let downs.

The A5 will probably make her the happiest. It's a beauriful car inside and outside, has awd and drives well enough, provided you/re not into performance.

Were heading over to Ray Catena over the weekend to test drive the C300 4Matic and the G37X coupe, from there on its negotiating and driving back with a new car

BTW - The lease price for those cars are the same which is

$480 a month (taxes in the payments)
$1300 out of pocket
36 months
12k miles a year

Def A5...she clearly doesn't care about performance so A5 is the way to go, not to mention you should be getting some sort of loyalty discount. You'll have a nicest looking car of the ones mentioned, good MPG, AWD. It's a nobrainer as far as I'm concerned.

Best move. You guys are leasing cars for a song in the states. I've never leased but I remember my lowly stripped M-sport 135 being between 900-1000/month in 2008.

I would go with the A5, but the Premium Plus package is a must.

Damn mtla. There is a BMW tech in Iowa here that leased an M Coupe 10K miles a year, tax title license downpayment and had payments of only $360 a month. WTF. That was with employee benefits and stuff but still. Made me mad.

The sales manager and finance manager of my local dealer are driving identical 08 M6 verts, loaded for $400 a month.
They were both left-overs in to 09 and BMW Financial gave them a good employee deal

edit: o and i would go for the c class. i just had a c300 for a loaner and loved it. that thing is rock fuckin solid. 25000 miles as a beat on loaner and not a rattle or squeak, barely showed any wear
