    Can't wait to see what Monica says about all this info. I know this, I was waaaaaaaay off when I guessed her current car that replaced the MINI.

    I do know Monica is "concentrated awesomeness" and because of that I would also suggest this, a FiST. No it's not AWD and yeah it's a 5 door but a set of steelies and snow tires aren't that much money and they will get your though the winter AND keep wear and tear off of your 3 season set up. The Recaros in that car would cradle her and the cars hardcore attitude would compliment Monica very well!

    I think the Golf R is a great option. Newer versions have 4 doors, but like the RS or other hot hatches, it doesn't have the same persona as a sedan.

    While not AWD, have you given any thought to a Focus ST or even a Fiesta ST? Smaller cars, total hoot to drive. Interiors won't stand up to a Golf R./GTI, but overall they are good in their own right.

    Don't know what you've looked at, or your budget but how about:
    - Audi TT or TTS
    - Audi A5 or S5
    - Infiniti G37x coupe

    Unfortunately the combination of AWD and coupe are difficult to come by. Typically the makers of a coupe are going one of two directions a simple, light, inexpensive, tossable car; or a focused performance car/GT coupe. The first case often results in a FWD car based on the platform of another car in the stable, and the second a RWD coupe/sports car in some fashion. Adding AWD, even more system like Haldex goes against both those philosophies.

    Hello gang!
    Just getting to all your suggestions...

    Roger, I love the Focus RS, even though it's a 4-door.
    HOWEVER- non of my local dealerships have any coming in, nor do they know when they will get any, so I don't know how that will change down the road. AND they insist on marking up the hell out of them which is a GIANT NO to me. I have no issues paying sticker price for a vehicle, but 5-10k more just because? No thank you.

    I like this as an option, but I plan on leasing, so it wouldn't be used.

    Don't worry Paul, right now I have the Escape for the hounds. My husband will most likely still have a doggie transporter.


    I'm REALLY trying to avoid a 4-door... the RS was an exception to that rule, but that was even stretching it.
    Thx for all the suggestions! LOL I love reading what you all have to say

    Challenger AWD is coming out. I'm not a Dodge guy but it's another option.

    Leasing...that changes things. I thought you were looking at buying.

    If you like the RS, don't let local dealerships take you out of the hunt. I've purchased/leased half of our cars over from out-of-state/out-of-area dealerships. It's a great way to get a good price and then road trip your new baby home!

    As for other options: Infiniti Q60 AWD, Lexus RC AWD, along with a host of German products like the 2 series, 4 series, C class, TT, A5/S5.

    If I was looking for an AWD coupe it would come down to the TT or the 2 series. The TT is no longer a "chick" car and the 2 series is a star performer, as well, though I'd think the AWD would mute things a bit.

    Yeah, buying is no good for me... I get bored of vehicles too fast LOL
    The RS is tough to find, period. But who knows if I really look outside of my "local" range.

    The Lexus RC is not bad... nice looking car.

    Sadly I've test-driven a 2 series and I was SEVERELY underwhelmed by it. It wasn't fast, nor did it handle well. And no touch screen? It's 2017!!!!!
    The good thing is maybe more options will be out there by the time I'm ready to lease again.
    Right now tops on my list is the Jaguar F-Type.
