Okay, well the time isn't really here, but around febuary-march, my parents plan on purchasing a new sedan for my mom. If you remember a while back, I posted asking for your comments on the S4 vs. c70 cabriolet. But ever since my neighbor bought a 540, I put the idea of owning a BMW in her head.(Don't worry Yannis, I know it means BMTroubleYou). Now that my sister is back from college and has heard about this idea, she says 7series only. Nothing else. Thats fine with me because now I have opened my mom to the idea of owning a car around 70k. I know that is a HUGE jump from the 40k price of an s4, but my dad works on contract and is certain he will be working for another year. My parents plan to pay for the car all at once. So what I am asking is probably a question of fanticy to everyone here, "What would you buy for around 70k?" I know most would say a t5 or some other nice volvo and use the rest on mods, I would like to do that too, but we can't in this case. This is a serious question, not a joke or a lie, its possible we may just get a 45k car and let my dad get his Mini Cooper S ealier, but who knows, I think he wouldl like the idea of a 7series even though they have that i-drive crap.
