    Fisker Karma or Maserati GranTurismo or Panamera. For more fun, a V2 but ditch the anemic can't rev LSA for a rev happy 427 or Blackdog 510.

    It is possible that it is more by percent. But there is no way it is more in absolute dollars.

    V2 is first choice with the SRT JEEP (2012 model) coming in a close 2nd. Would be a nice year round vehicle here in MI.

    Re: replacing the V

    According to some test I was reading, the new one with the 6.4L is no faster than the old one, due to some pretty significant weight gain (new MB ML-based platform).

    I read the same thing....I think the curb weight of the new SRT8 is ~5250...?!?!?

    I recently replaced my 05 V with an 04 E55K. The cars are really different. I love the power of the E55 and not having to shift on lazy days.

    You need to list your expectations and budget to get more replies.

    It's hard to beat the V in it's price range. Everything 'better' costs more both initially and long term...

    Re: replacing the V

    ok what i think i am looking for

    since i had a V1 i would like all the same options including the HP. i would like something that i dont have to chase fixing or modding to make better (v1 diff ,motor mounts, clutch sensor, vibration ect). i am sure all cars have there thing.


    my main deal is i now have to travel 45 miles one way and on a major hi-way (michigan I-75) so something better in the snow times also.

    thanks

    The M5 is more expensive to buy and maintain. The M3 is going to leave you wanting more power. You'll have all the 335i kiddies with a $500.00 tune as fast as you are. Go with the second generation CTS-V...

    +1 you will see a noticeable difference between a M3 and V2. Also, in the current market V2s are holding their value very well and much better than a M5.
