I'm starting to mull over car choices for a replacement for the family motor (currently a 2004 Merc E320cdi Avantgarde Estate).. For me, the choosing is the best bit.. poring over brochures, test drives etc so it'll probably take me about 6 months to make a decision. The Merc has been great in most respects, if a little dull and "old mans car" for me (I'm only 35). My current shortlist for a replacement is as follows.. Audi S6 Avant (2nd hand. Can't run to the just announced RS6) Audi Allroad Audi Q7 (2nd hand) BMW M5 Saloon (2nd hand, the Touring is ideal but too new and pricy) BMW 535d Touring BMW X5 (2nd hand) VW Touareg Porsche Cayenne (2nd hand) Range Rover Sport (2nd hand) Range Rover (1 year old model as seem to suffer big depreciation) The 4x4 bit is useful as we are fairly rural but not essential.. Need a fair bit of space as we have two young kids. I've put a few sporty options in there for the lad in me but if I'm honest it's not a must (we also have a Cooper S Works Mini).. My budget is £35K - £40K tops so for some of the above I'm obviously looking at 1 - 2 year old cars. What would you guys go for? Any other suggestions?
