this or that

Well if the wife gets this new job she says she wants a car that has luxury but not many others drive. And the 2 that caught her eye. Oh keep in mind this will be like a weekend attention grabbing type car were...... A 2007 CLS55 AMG, BMW m5 e60, and the least expensive and not my choice a used Audi s4 like a 07, cause it looks good to her and so forth. Well whatever it is will be used we found the CLS and M5 in the 30000 area and the s4 for like 23 thousand or so. If it were up to you to influence her on one of these what would you prefer. I think the CLS is sexiest. Love the M5s v10 and I kinda like the S4s pricetag and recaros haha. Opinions?

1. M5 - big enough to take friends or family, 500hp V10 howl
2. CLS AMG - prettied up E-class wagon with less headroom in the rear for passengers.
3. S4 - let her drive it and see how much SHE likes it. Shorter wheelbase than the other two so the ride will be more choppy. Definitely a more focused sports sedan vs. the other two.

As much as I love the E60 M5 and that S85, I think she'd be best suited with the CLS.

Out of that list Id choose the M5. Seems like the most amount of car for the money. Id also pay attention to which car has the most warranty remaining too. None of them are cheap to fix.

You're looking for luxury and attention grabbing? Spring for the E60 and throw on a meisterchaft exhaust setup.

Go for the E60 over the CLS55, though. We have a CLS63 and it's not particularly amazing by comparison. The M5 feels far more special and unique when you're driving it. Sounds much better too, surprisingly. The 6.2 in the CLS is too muted imo.

Ya i agree with you. The only one she has driven is her friends i think its a 06 s4 with the sporttronic or whatever the hell they call it with audi. Cause she is lacking in the stick driving department. Or else i would talk her into a cayman S. But I agree with you. The M5 is my main choice. Just seeing what she wants when we get stateside. She loves the look of the CLS mainly cause there aren't many in korea. Koreans are a bit on the dumb side when it comes to cars. A 5 series is a 5 series to them. Traffic here sucks so to them oh hey its a 528 no babi M5 oh same thing right haha. But the only CLS's here are mainly the 500 and amgs so they believe its like a class/higharchy thing. Well we'll see how it goes in a few months haha watch us end up getting like a volvo or something lol.
