    Rs6/m5/e55/e63 I hate dodge but I like the new srt-8 charger. Buy a 30k e55/m5 and you will never look back.

    Get a m5 my friend traded a 06 ctsv in on a 07 m5 and he loves it. I had a 750il v12 BMW before the stsv and I kick my self for selling that car. but if you still want gm find a g8 gt/ gxp that's a nice car. With a 6.2l to boot.

    M5 FTW. Very expensive to maintain; but with 500hp 5.0 V10 you cant go wrong

    Re: replacing the V

    I just traded my CTS-V on a V2. I have friends with a M3, M5, M6, S4, S6 and RS6 and have raced them all. In the end, I still prefer my second gen CTS-V And, I would not want to own any one of those cars outside of having a warranty.

    That is too funny you just posted that...I was just looking at the '12 Jeep SRT8s for my "better half".....

    BTW....the '13 is going to get rid of the garbage 5-speed tranny and put an 8-speed clutchless in it.....and update the cheesy "paddle (button) shifters".....

    bc the parts are made of unobtanium and kept on the moon, unfortunately.

    True statement....

    The Krauts are Socialist (i.e. Communist)....no sense of realistic prices for services and products.....or supply and demand......

    For example....Cadillac produced a ~556hp luxury sport sedan for <$65 over 4 years ago.....BMW finally figured it out this year for north of 100 Euro ($145k)......not sure if the new M5 is out in the states yet.....but damn!?

    With the amount the M5 costs......I could buy a Vagon to tow the M5.....and then buy ANOTHER CTS-V to beat it around the 'Ring with!

    Not to mention money left over for gas and lunch......and then cash to pay the professional photographers for taking pics of the whole event!

    Re: replacing the V

    that makes sense but lets look at resale the V in 4yrs will get 20000 were at the BMW should still see 30000

    trust me i like the V2 a lot just looking for something different

    M3 seems to be comparable
