    This actually is a very reliable SUV. My sister has one. Turbo S model. It drives like you are on rails. The maintenance at the dealership is ridiculous though. Kind of hard to say it's worth the money considering the depreciation over the years. Actually get 22+MPG on the highway.

    I went from a Mitsubishi regular cab truck to a Chevy 1500HD ext. cab to a GMC 2500HD crew cab to a Jeep Wrangler JKU loaded and lifted now back to a 2019 TRD Sport DCSB. Slowly down sizing. My next ride will probably be a 2021 silver C8 Corvette. Or a mobility scooter if a don't slow down.

    Good choice.

    I’m actually thinking about selling my Pro and just getting a 2nd gen beater for household duties/errands since that’s what it has been relegated to since getting a GT3

    I would have bought a prius or that Honda hybrid. But I need the truck and need the four wheel drive.

    In reality, I would probably get another Corvette Z06.

    Great performance for cheap.

    No manual on the RS5...

    I was looking for at a 2008 RS4 at one point, but you gotta remember that even if you pay around 20-25k for it, it remains a 100k car with the maintenance that comes with it.

    One day I might get the V8 S5 manual, they are a rare breed tho. SC'd V6 sounds fun too. Now if only we could get an Avant without it being the shitty A4 Allroad...

    If someone knew of a vehicle equal in performance, utility, and reliability, yet more economical, I would definitely consider it as well.

    That would be fun, but I don't think I would make it my DD, even if I no longer needed a truck lol.

    I don't *need* a truck now, but I like them.

    But to play along here, probably a 370Z in deep blue with the 6MT (of course)

    Too much.
    My son just got a 2017 GTI. It's a quick car for sure. Quicker than my A4 was.
