My lease is almost up, and I have been trying to figure out what I should get next? what do you guys think of the 2009 Infiniti G37x coupe. They decided to give the option of all wheel drive in the coupe as well. I am thinking about going to test drive one next week.

Any other suggestions? I need a car with all wheel drive, and looking to spend around 40k or less. After having a grand prix gtp, then a acura tl type s, now my volvo s60r, I think I need to keep increasing the horsepower on each of my cars

I can't wait to see the Lexus version, though I'm sure that will be north of 40k.

Your next logical choice is a GT-R

... 335xi coupe comes in AWD. It's a nice step up.

The AWD on it is odd in turns though, I still can't get used to it.

Even though a nice car.. the interior and just feel of the car is just cheap. It would be hard to handle it after the R.

The infinity has received some strange reviews, a lot of complaints about the engine as well.

335xi with the juicebox would be sweet. How about a S4? Both of thous seem to be out of the price range though.

Let's ask this: where you do most of your driving, is there any snow/ice involved?

Yes I am def going to look at the 335xi as well.

I am usually in Detroit for the winters, so I def drive in a good amount of snow and ice. That is why i want to make sure my next car has awd.

I looked at the jeep cherokee srt8, and thought the inside was subpar to the rest of the car. Also when I am in atlanta, the car might be a little more difficult to parallel park.

I really liked the Audi S4, and it is a little out of my price range. I am 26, and have a lot of other expenses coming up in the next year or so.

Re: (gaddamit)

Well I asked about the snow because I love my BMW, but even on the slightest moistness on the road it is trigger-happy with the tail so absolutely get AWD if you consider anything bimmer. I don't know how good xDrive is though, I've read it can do 100-0 and 0-100 front/rear biases. That's impressive seeing that all except the most recent Audi's can't even do that.

They are awesome. My buddy has one, and with a simple intake and exhaust, he dropped that thing down to 12.7 in the quarter-mile. Those big engines can really breathe with simple bolt-ons.

I wanted one of those but maintenance is as bad as an M5, not to mention the price.

I've read some information, although I can't comment on its validity, that the RS4 V8 shears oil like a mofo. Not good for a daily driver.

Don't lease next time


So YOU can sell the car after 4-5yrs or whatever and keep that pocketchange to buy options/upgrades for the new ride

after your lease ends,you end up with NOTHING


BTW, parked last week besides an RS4 Avant ... is that car creapy small with a huge fat steeringwheel
I was not impressed at all with it looks. Sure it's faster with the big fat V8 but annual-taxes are huge on those engines where I live ... I would NEVER pick a V8 above a turbo for a "normal" "streetcar"
