2008 CTS DI

Why? Because you gotta...I mean, 42K gets a FULLY loaded top of the line 304hp Direct injected CTS.

Give it a shot before you park over and decide on a TL or something, give the CTS a chance.

If it'* under warranty, why is there big repair costs for you?

Either it'* under warranty and so he knows how much he would have to pay to repair it if it weren't under warranty (my parent'* Audi was repaired and maintained free under warranty, but they still gave us a bill and it had the cost of the work on it).

Or it'* just a limited power train warranty.

All good options, but they all involve buying another car that will depreciate. Why not sell the beamer and get an older that has been climbing in value? Doesn't necessarily have to be a muscle car, but something along those lines.

If you want a new foreign car, I'd probably go with the TL.

Yeah I just hate putting money into an old car. The CPO warranty ended at 50K so I am only covered by the factory waranty. I guess I get bored of my cars too soon lol

Quite possibly the best advice I've seen so far on this thread. Though waiting for the G8 comes close.

It'* like when a child argues to get candy at the store and the parent obliges. Except it'* a car, not candy.
