they seem like comfortable cars, not fast at all but comfy. No aftermarket whatsoever in a reasonable price range, imo i would get a lexus is300.

From what I've heard, they're comfortable and fairly quick, but not really performance oriented. I think that for the money there are better cars out there. I don't know how much you're paying, but you could definitely pick up an M3 or an IS or a TL or several other cars. I'd reconsider, personally.

Why not get a TL, then? Still in the Honda family so very reliable and cost to own is less. I think you would be much happier with one of those.

is300. if you want awd get a 06 sti. that is my dream car. 27 grand will buy you one and leave you a little money to mod it with if you shop around.

still if you want to get a nice luxury car with some zoom you cannot go wrong with the old or new lexus is. The new 250-350's have awd too. Lexus is the number one most reliable car this year.

The previous body style of the TL is the way to go. You can get type s, base, 6 speed or auto, all of them are nice, and it will blow the doors off that Audi, better interior, all together its all better imo

Thanks for all of your input, although some of you didn't understand that i didn't care about modding and performance. So i got a deal for an 09, quattro, leather, tiptronic, the extra airbag thing (don't really care but fuck it) 750$ pearl paintjob and im skipping on bluetooth because I could just buy a GPS with it already built in for 500 cheaper. all for 45 grand with taxes end everything, and extra warrenty. Considering im saving a couple grand im pretty happy with the purchase. Just gotta wait till it's shipped. Il be sure to post pics when it arrives. And as much as I wanted it, a company im working for on the side (owned by a very close friend) is paying for it so it doesnt bother me. Cheers guys!

if you want, il put on a pimp hat, throw some spinners while listening to pimp juice just for mr sportshift. And look at it this way, i got the tiptronic feel of a 5th gen, minus the breakdown rate.
