    Grrrrrrrrrrr

    Hey gang,
    Gotta rant here.

    So I am ALWAYS looking for my next ride. Yes, I have 1 year and 9 months left on my lease, but it's never too early (in my book) to start planning for the next ride.

    I'd really like to simplify things and go down to 1 vehicle... but I'd like something I can drive all year and not have to worry too much about some snow and bad weather.

    SO! My ideal vehicle is the following....

    1. AWD... I'm on that band-wagon (love it or hate it).
    2. A Coupe. Sorry, but I don't have a family, I do not need and do not want 4 doors.

    So you would think with only 2 stipulations it would be easy to find a car and the market would be flooded with choices, right?
    NO! My rant is.... how hard is it to find a 2 door AWD car?????? VERY HARD.
    And when I actually find one, it's expensive. VERY expensive.

    Damn car makers!

    Any suggestions here from people of manufacturers to look at?

    Keeping the fleet clean since 2011

    LOL! You sound just like me, though I only have 8 months left on my current lease.

    While I want a coupe too, I will consider a sedan if it meets my other criteria.

    The current list.

    BMW M240ix
    Audi S3
    MB C43
    MB CLA45
    Infiniti Q60 Redsport
    Alfa Romeo Giulia

    Possible considerations
    WRX
    Golf R
    New Kia Stinger

    My wife recently picked up an off lease CPO MB E350 4Matic Coupe. If you'd consider buying used, check out the 2015 E400 4Matic Coupe. She LOVES hers!

    Maybe the new Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be out by the time your lease is up, rumor has it may be offered in awd.

    Then there's always the Audi A5 LOL

    Monica, knowing you through the forum I'm first going to subscribe to this thread

    Now onto the car, its quite difficult to find you a car that fits YOU and your personality, based off of the vibe I get here and through PM's over the years. Now I know you said you don't want or need a 4 door but can I interest you in a 5 door, LOL!



    I think this car fits you to a T Monica, look for a CPO and go for it!

    Great ideal, it they are still getting a premium over sticker, and used going for almost new pricing.
