I KNOW RIGHT!... i'd be drivin from DFW to San Pedro every weekend.

did you see the woodgrain interior though... freakin beautiful interior.. i really dig that color leather too. reminds me of Ferrari leather. and that dash cluster is wicked.

you know that the G35 is the Skyline right? when they discontinued the Skyline with the RB26DETT, they realized how much US citizens wanted it, so they made a US version, and that was the G35

i think you need to revisit the A8... or one that is a year or two old...there is no better drivetrain out there IMHO...comfy, powerful, sleek, and they donl;t seem to be a dime dozen, at lest not down here in Va, where as there are 5 and 7 series EVERYWHERE... just my .02...

revel in it, i love buying a new car, (even if its an old new car...)

I talked to one of my Euro-biased buddies today (and surprisingly he WASN'T an asshole ...

He recommended the A8 (had already briefly considered it) and the s5...


I'm still just very hesitant to consider a Euro car. the reliability is NOTHING compared to that of the Japanese. I know I get much more car, but I pay a premium for it, and if I still have it after the initial warranty expires, I might as well save the time and buy the Vaseline ahead of time =\

I'll add the Audis to the list!

Can't beat the Audi's for that rock solid feel on the interior..it's like being in a vault! I'm a former Audi guy that gave into Japanese reliability

No it's between the LS460 and the assumed ownage of the m45 AWD

I'm considering the Euros, but I'm a heavy Japanese car guy

If I had the money, I'd buy 3 cars

-C63 AMG
-LS460
-M45

I'm sure I'l be happy with any of the cars I decide, but I want this car purchase to be my "main" car for the next 4-6 years. A Euro just doesn't seem to be able to fit that timeline
