My last post got me thinking a bit so I need some thoughts on my next step; below are my choices as I see them. I want to remain in the 80k range with a standard deviation of 10k. I need a sports car capable of commuting through all seasons as well as to my ski house. What should I do?
1. keep my RS5 for another 50K and just enjoy a well cared for high mileage car for as long as it holds up?
2. wait for the next RS4/5 to arrive and trade for that?
3. buy a brand new carrera 4
4. buy a CPO Carrera 4S
5. buy a cpo E63 AMG-S 4 Matic
option 1 is what I am leaning towards because of how great this car has treated me. But it would be nice to sell it while it has higher re-sale so that I dont have to put up as much cash on my next purchase.
option 2 may take a while and it would likely be the most expensive option as it would combine depreciation over the time that I wait and a high price on a new car
option 3 could work as it would combine a strong resale on my car with a reasonable price on a P car ... but is the base engine a bit too tame?
option 4 could be cool but i hesitate to drive a car with someone else's germs... (kidding) but is a used car a good idea?
option 5 same as 4, but is that too luxo-barge? (i'd hunt for the wagon)
