    New car shopping.

    Ok, so my bank just approved me for a car loan and I've been shopping around at multiple dealers.
    So far I'm not to happy with what dealers have been offering me for a trade in. (So far 12k-14k is what I've been offered)
    This is what I'm driving. It's 2008 Dodge Charger RT with 42,000 miles on it. The thing is it has a lot of after market parts I added.



    After market parts:

    Yokohama Parada Spec-X racing tires ( about 3k miles on the tires)
    After market 8 speaker stereo system
    After market exhaust
    After market cams
    After market head lamps
    After market shocks+struts.

    The car is in excellent shape, and has always been meticulously maintained.
    I'm really not trying to let it go for any less than 17-17.5k It's worth it all day.
    Thing that blows, is that I need the damn trade in money To get the new car I want.
    So I guess I'm gonna take the tires off and throw the factory shits on,
    and take the Audio system out. The other shit I really can't be fucked with.
    Anyway, my budget for the new whip is 38k-40k. I've been looking at these cars for prospects.
    Hopefully some car enthusiasts hop in this thread and throw some input in.. I'm kind of torn really.
    I love my car, but I want to flip it before it gets to 50k miles and the value drops more.
    It's also a v8 and a total fucking gas guzzler, which was one of the excuses the dealers were giving me for the shit trade in values.


    option 1.

    2012 Cadillac CTS sports sedan (MSRP starting at 35,000.00)



    option 2.

    2012 Nissan Z-coupe (MSRP starting at 32,000.00)




    option 3.

    2012 Audi A5 Coupe (MSRP starting at 38,000.00)



    option 4.

    2013 Volkswagen CC (MSRP starting at 30,000.00)



    Well, those are the 4 cars I've been looking at.
    So far I've test driven the Cadillac CTS and the Nissan Z and I was really impressed with both.
    The Z handled like a fucking champ, though I absolutely loved the CTS interior, and it had some serious power for a luxury sedan.

    Opinions?

    The CTS is a nice all around car, handles gas alright. rides smooth, it has clean, sleak look and it's overall, not a bad price for it, considiring design and overall performance.

    ALSO, it rolls a v6 engine I do believe, and after researching a bit I found it runs 22 mpg. so you can be the judge on fuel usage.

    You're definitely right about the depreciation of the car, the price will drop like a bag of potatoes as soon as it hits 50k.

    Go another 2 or so dealers and say that xxxx dealership quoted you around 16k.

    R.I.P a great GM

    Like I said to Doc;

    Depends how many Need for Speed tokens you have. Though, the second option has very good handling, but the third one has very nice drifting AND handling.

    It's a v8 gas is raping my wallet lately because of all the driving I've been doing,
    that and I pretty much always sell my cars before they hit 50k. miles.

    I'd say definitely try and test drive that Audi. A friend of mine runs a '10 A5 Multi and it is an absolute pleasure to drive, and he says that it happens really good fuel efficiency as well. I've never driven the other three options, nor do I know of anyone that has, save for the Z34 (which is also a really nice car, but only a 2 seater), so I can't really be a judge on them. But what I do know is that Audi and VW make some cars that are really comfortable to drive around in, and are brilliant day to day cars.
