    You're spoofing, right?

    If you can afford the models you mention, odds are pretty good that you'll be able to afford the CTS - shouldn't be that much difference in price. Just lighten up on the options a bit & you should come in under the wire.

    All three alternatives are good cars - having owned several Audis (currently have a 2006 A8L in addition to CTS), I'm partial to the A4. But...shoot for the CTS!

    Re: if you had to choose..

    i can actually get a fully loaded g35x with navi for like $39,000.. audi is about the same (those are my two front-runners out of the three) but a fully loaded cts is pushing about $46,500 for what i want.. i'm only 22, i'm still in school i'm not sure i can afford that.. i mean right now i drive an '04 CTS and that was about $44,000, but i'm not sure how much more a month an '08 is gonna push me

    ps, my only issue with the audi is that it's only 200 horses.. i have the 3.6 in my cts, so that's stepping down

    Re: if you had to choose..

    Yes, it's only 200 hp, but is does have direct port injection & they've done a pretty good job of matching the turbo to the characteristics of the engine & the 6spd auto. All in all a well balanced little car...and it is a bit small when compared to the CTS or the Infiniti. That factor would concern me personally more than the 2.0 ltr engine.

    Ah, I'd still try to swing the Caddie - or it might be a good idea to wait a bit longer since you're still in school. Zeroing out the pocketbook is no fun when still a student - you need a bit of spare change to be able to afford to kick back & have some fun from time to time.

    I'm sure there are plenty of good miles remaining in the '04.

    For what it's worth... Good luck...

    guy i work with has a g35, go for that one. It has good handling and extra added pep, only drawback is that the coupe version is tiny as sh*t. hope your not a big dude, im 6'4" and barely fit in that thing, would not be able to drive it. but choice #1 should be the CTS

    Re: if you had to choose..

    the cts is no doubt my number one choice.. the only reason i want to get rid of my car is because it doesn't have all wheel drive. im a big skiier and i would like to just to be able to just take my car and drive up to vermont whenever i want, anyone who has ever tried to drive the current cts in the snow knows it's not a very nice thing to do lol. i'm only 5'7' so i dont have issues with being too big for the car.. i actually dont mind the fact that the audi is smaller, cause like i said i'm not a big guy lol..

    suprisingly i still have money to pretty much do whatever i want.. i guess that's the good thing about selling drugs.. lol jk (every single person that sees my car asks if i sell drugs.. i guess it's the whole 22 year old with a white caddy with black rims? lol)

    I say if you cant get the 08 CTS just go with a left over 07. Im sure you can get them very cheap now and save a bunch also.

    Re: if you had to choose..

    I like the old infinity body better than the new in the coupe, 4 door is cool this generation.
    Can't do Audi my liquor bottles hold more than that engine
    Is Lexus ever going to release the IS with the inline 6 cyl???

    Shit, I hope u can afford the 08 CTS cus i dont know if i would do any of those choices as is.
