If 45-50k and I got my choise I would get a lotus I think if I did not have to worry about anyone else. If I was him I would look into a 528.

Agreed. Marriages only work when there's compromises on both sides.

Its just a car man. There is more to marriage than agreeing on cars. BTW, He used to have a Z4 and old Explorer.

Now there is a young un on the way and looks like her family will be visiting a lot more as well. And so they need a sensible car now.

Anyway, the A5 is definitely out - it is $60K here.

The A4 is alright but it just feels plain to him.

Test drove the LR2, he wasn't too keen on it but I ended up loving it. Looks like this will be the next car when I sell the e92 at the end of the year (warranty is almost up and am sick of the constant problems). And since the missus has a 650 on the way it will be perfect - 1 off roader and 1 sports car.

Anyway, back to the problem at hand, No BMWs so no 5 series either.

The A6 has been dismissed - too plain again.

Looks like we are gonna test drive the Alfa 159, Touareg and the XF over the next couple of days.

.

Exacttly and if she is not letting him get a car because she does not like the way it looks then I am sure she controls a lot more than that being as this is such a minor thing as you said. Who knows and who cares.

I would get a TL if I was him or G35

Don't get Acuras over here.

G35 is on the review list as well. Most probably next week.

+10000000000000000000000000000000

Here is a good example. My wife never drove stick and that is all I will even drive unless I lose a leg. So I told her if she wants to drive any car I will ever own she must learn stick and that I would teach her. Now that I taught her for the last 6 years all she has ever driven was a stick and just got an new X3 with a stick less than 2 months ago. If she did not like driving it she would not have a problem with me getting it on MY CAR.


Compromise is the key. My wife does not like Coral red interior but i am still getting it on my car I order next Feb because its my car. Her X3 is white with Tobacco because that is what she likes. I also happen to think its the best color combo but if she wanted green with beige (which I dont like) I would not stop her from getting it as its HER car. That is all I am trying to say to the OP.

Thanks for the marriage lesson.

BTW. They are moving from having 2 cars to a single car.

In that price range and for what he wants I would probably get an A4 or S5, Caddy, or maybe a Lexus

If he's open to a coupe...

1. A5 (You can have it well loaded w/ bang and Olufsen system for under $50k)

If if needs a sedan...

1. Audi A6
2. Infiniti M35 fully loaded (The M45 would be well over 50k)
3. Lexus GS350
