ok rank them...

and state your reason for your #1, be honest

All optioned for $45,000 max

Audi A5
Infiniti G37S Coupe
MB C350 Sports Sedan
BMW 335i Coupe
Audi TT 3.2 Quatro
Lex IS250 AWD
Cadillac CTS
Accord Coupe V6 (every single option and accessory= 40,000)

Here is mine
1. G37S
2. 335i
3. Audi A5
4. C350
5. TT 3.2
6. Accord Coupe
7. IS250
8. CTS

I picked the G, not because i now own one, but because the hp/performance ratio to its fully loaded tag of 45,000 is by far the best. After driving one for a week with all the these toys, its just incredible.

i'd put 335i as my number 1 ... and why isn't is350 on there? XD I'd take that over the G37S. I test drove both the g37s and IS350, and the IS impressed me a lot more than the G. Just my 2 cents.

wow really, the G seemed so much more nimble and responsive and the engine growl is great

None of the rest appeal to me enough to rank. (not slamming anybody, but I cannot see having any of the others in my garage). -even though some are decent cars

^^ Concur, but I'd put the A5 above the 335i, as long as it's a Quattro...so I guess it would be the S5 then...

The A5 interior is ridiculously nice, feels like a $100,000 car, but the thing is a boat. I think they have the nicest interiors in the market. I was in a RR and you could tell it was more expensive, with jungle thick carpeting, but for day to day driving I'd still prefer the new A5.

I'd still prefer a 335 due to the better peformance, and BMW interiors aren't too shabby either. Utilitarian, but nice.

I cant believe the TT makes it on the majority of your lists. Its a vast improvement drive-wise over the former but its still no class leader. Its also a bit too cute for me.

1.335i
2. A5
3. G37s
4. not really interested in the rest
