    If I could buy a stick a V10 M5 would be on the table, but being I am using my wives truck to tow my toys she has to be able to comfortably drive whatever I buy in the winter. A stick will not make her happy.

    Slow. Everything I want is $70-80k...which is off by at least $20k. Roof almost got put on today though which will make it easier to move forward. No place to put it atm.

    Exactly why my wife has a Jeep and one of the greatest things about the Escalade. As for the 3 looking like the 5 in the current ones from a long ways away they all look the same....and it sucks. If it didn't suck I'd be ok. The E class is downright ugly as fuck.

    Every damn BMW looks like every other BMW now. Who wants an M5 that looks like a 318

    The control for the infotainment in the Lexus is stupid though. So fucking bad

    The RR supercharger may make the Lexus as much fun though. Part of me prefers the power than spools and keeps coming and part of me likes the nasty holy shit now. For winter the spool up is better.

    Way more fun than the E63 or M5. WAY

    My ugly ass Escalade made my Mercedes look like the POS. I despise GM....but am deathly scared of the alternatives.

    Yep. Kills me because the CTS-V's were 10-15k less pre-Covid

    If work didn't lease shit for me I would say the same, but I also want to maximize what I get. Can lease that as cheap as a new explorer except with the explorer there is a warranty so the repairs on the car will be my problem.

    I like this one, but they are $8k optimistic IMO. https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=580369371&clickType=myATCsavedcar

    I don't love any of them...so wallet per smile wins. Matt Panera Turbo in the same price is a 10-13. The ass....I can't take the ass.

    I fit just fine in the Caddy. Cost of ownership is huge to me as I am cheap. If the residual says high I will make money. Depreciation + repair I would like to minimize. The Lexus maintenance would include a supercharger and stereo stuff to fix the nonsense they have.

    Drove a Hennessey 550 ATS-V the other day. That car was glorious...but too small.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    The V1 & V2 were pretty much the same, but the 3 is more the new Camaro than Cadillac....or the Camaro is more the Caddy.. Either way. 17.5+ gets the new Cue (still yuck, but isn't plagued with the screen bs), and most of the other fit and finish shit is miles better. Shock prices and parts are absurd, but cheap compared to the Germans or the Lexus. The Lexus feels slow. Drove one again a couple weeks ago. It also feels old in the interior. When I am paying $60k for a car I'd not like that feeling. I know I told you to talk me out of it and I am arguing...but it isn't because I don't want to be talked out of it. You know I take 80 years to decide on a car and pretty much have it down to the Lexus and the Caddy, but my wife asked me the million dollar question which is what will make me happier when I open the garage and see it. For the Lexus to win that it will need a supercharger added. The Benz I don't think can make me feel that way as it is truly the ugliest $100k sedan I have seen. The BMW doesn't differentiate itself from the standard 5 series to do it. I am also scared like fuck of owning one after my last AMG experience. The initial purchase is on work, the maintenance on me.

    Ah, the V1 & V2 were pieces of crap. Looking at V3.

    If they made a 4 door Shelby Mustang I'd be in line to get one already. I need a car that minimally my 5'8" wife can sit behind me in. The Charger Hellcat is a fucking turd.

    My POS Cadillac has been through hell and back and outside of owner influenced troubles has only had the cruise control and the heated seat break. Alternatives are BMW M5, Mercedes E63, and the Lexus GS F. Was going to go electric, but the MachE isn't much better than the pos Tesla's so I gave up that notion. The Lexus is too slow and adding a supercharger to it probably takes that lovely reliability and kicks it out the window. It's infotainment system is nonsense as well. The laundry list of things that go wrong on the Germans on the forums is a mile long. The CTS-V somewhat minimal... I am scared of it though, because Cadillac.
