Help!!! What Should I Buy Next, M5, Amg, Afr?

Hi, im not sure what to go for, i have a budget of c35000 and am selling my E92 M3.
I need something with 4 doors due to expanding family, but cant make up my mind what to go for next, I have narrowed my options to:

C63 AMG Estate - Used start at c40,000 is it worth the extra 5k plus for the power and sound?

Jaguar XFR - Not the best looker but stunning review and beautiful interior, again used start at c40,000 is it worth the extra?

M5 Touring - Used start c30,000, so a saving... but its the outgoing (gone) model, not a looker, but then it has That V10... High running costs, and maybe im bored of BMW having been with M3s for the past 4 years...

Others... E63 AMG estate old shape (hate the old lights), RS4 Avant (4wd, no wow factor)?

HELP!!! what should I do?!!!!!

Besides what you already mentioned...Porsche Panamera, Maserati Quattroporte, Caddy CTS-V sedan, BMW X5M/6M to name a few.
If I think of any others, I will let you know...

I say if you like the interior design (the quality is superb) and don't find it too reminiscent of a 1990's denon stereo receiver, and are comfortable with an automatic (and many of your choices are so I'm assuming yes) how can you beat the XFR?

In Canada the XFR is almost exactly the same price as the optioned M3 Sedan (Saloon) I plan to order ($85,000 CDN + 13% tax), so I naturally considered it and spent some time at the Jaguar dealer. I decided it was a little excessively large, although couldn't accommodate a roof rack, and the interior that I first fell for head over heals started to look dated,... and I was still in shopping mode.

The C63 is a fantastic animal, but given UK fuel prices, and the fact it will run through petrol faster than your M, that might just get annoying.

E90 m3 ZCP . . It adds 100whp so you're pushing just as much as the m5
