Just a FYI, since I can't edit the OP. I prefer cheaper, but am open to anything under six figures (under 5 preferred because I'm a cheap bastard)

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

My GF recently blew up the tranny on my old Jeep.

And this is why you never let your woman drive your car. The fact that she is not a former GF shows a sheer lack of logic.

WolfofWSO:
Your GF blew a tranny?!

Yeah, but it was a Jeep Tranny, so he/she was super butch. :-)

As to where and price, No, In a lot in Jersey. I work in Lower Manhattan but live right on the PATH Train in Jersey. (the commute is quicker than it would be from half of Manhattan, the rent is cheaper, and I have a parking space) Realistically, I'd feel bad going much over $60k given how little use it would get. I saw a nice little 12 year old boxter that I'd consider. It doesn't need to be reliable since it's primarily for running errands and road trips.

A boxster wouldn't be the best for road trips. They are small cars.

For that price range, a BMW 440i would be much bigger and is also 0 - 60 in 4.4 seconds. I kind of like the size of the 4 series cars, my friend has a hardtop convertible 4 series - I've ridden around in it with her and driven it a few times.

What are your priorities in terms of driving habits? Okay with buying out of warranty?

I do my own maintenance so I have been watching Lotus Evora and BMW M6 prices closely, they seem to have bottomed out in terms of depreciation.

I'll probably end up with an earlier gen Boxster S because I like to go to the track and not worry if it gets a few beauty marks.

For $10,000 you can get an Abarth 500 and have enough extra room for an actual tranny to ride shotgun with you and your GF. Maybe you can take the savings and put it all on TVIX or some other responsible endeavor.

I had a older Miata for years, and did a 500 mile road trip in it, and it wasn't bad. (along with several timing belts and other work) With enough work you can pile enough girls to take home for a for a threesome in it, but forget foursomes. Also, are you sure TVIX is a reasonable investment? I'm pitching my boss on a triple leveraged inverse VIX ETF, that might be more "reasonable" I like the ticker OSHIT.

Whatever1984, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I could pay cash up to around $60k easily, I've got family with large SUVs locally, and have survived with a Miata as an only car before. My problem is I don't want to pay $100/mo to park a $2k boring civic, and I'd rather something interesting. Also having nothing is kind of a pain, as I'm not 'quite' in the city. (although those Huge Trader Joe's runs on the subway used to be brutal)

That being said, I will get no prestige from it, as it will never see work, and the fact that I am the glue that keeps the funds together is already well known. A 7 Series for prestige's sake is pointless to me.

I had my mom get a F Pace for this exact reason. Fun car especially in sport, and 25k miles with no issues but frankly comparing it to a Macan the build quality just isn't there. She liked her old 2013 BMW X5 better cuz it felt more "solid". The value proposition still made it worth it, but it really comes down to only 10-15k more for a Macan.

globalmacro, what's your opinion? Comment below:

You want something cheap and define that as generally below 6 figures? You know you can get an amazing car for under $50K...

I think part of the problem is if you don't drive much, you end up paying a lot of depreciation for not much enjoyment. That doesn't seem like a good trade-off. So given how much you drive, I'd say go second hand, maybe 3-5 years old. Since reliability isn't a problem for you, obviously you can look at the mainstream brands such as BMW, Mercedes and Audi, but I would find it annoying to have to deal with reliability problems even if I don't drive much. I like the Mercedes GLK350 look and I think Audi in general has some of the top rated AWD systems, but the brand isn't overly reliable.

Can take a look at Lexus (low maintenance, some nice cars, especially the newer models). I think Infinity is a fairly under-rated brand and cars such as the G37 have a pretty sporty feel, is fairly reliable, and can get a solid second hand price in the $15K range loaded with tech options.

In the end it depends where you will be driving, whether you need AWD, SUV, sedan, etc. You can get something interesting and relatively inexpensive without having to drive a boring car.

I can't fucking believe this isn't the only answer.

OP, what the fuck do you want in a car? You don't even seem to know....clearly you can afford something expensive, but then you keep hedging by saying you wouldn't mind a shitbox...no one can help you if you can't even give a slight approximation of what you want.

As this website's self-appointed car expert, I second the F10 (2013-2017 in the US) M5 suggestion, can easily get a nice used one for about 60k, or less. Hell, 50k will get you a nice one. Fast as hell, great for long drives, tons of space, comfortable, excellent to drive, decent gas mileage, sounds good, looks good, etc.

I don't know why you keep tripping all over yourself to say you don't want to buy xyz car because of "prestige" - this isn't a fucking resume, get what you want. You're the guy saying he can pay 60k in cash for a car that will hardly get used...I think you ought to be less concerned about whether or not people might think you're a douche for the car you drive.

I live in Chicago and own a 2010 M5, and it barely gets driven. But I wouldn't sell it for anything. I use it exactly as you plan to use your car...short trips around town, long road trips, and any time I just feel like driving and listening to the V10 scream. A used AMG S Class might also be what you're looking for.

The E60 M5s are sick. Very clean looking car. V10s are real sexy. Classy and fast. My friend wants to specifically get this year for that engine.

Former multiple time miata owner. Quick is better than fast, and I am a little OCD. Three pedals are strongly preferred. It needs to be usable as an only car for 95%+ of the time. (I don't think an Elise works given the parking and practicality situations) Reasonably, I'd prefer something I can buy without dipping into my savings account (

http://www.edmunds.com/volkswagen/r32/

Seconded, though the US version always gets the short stick on bhp. I'll vote for the WRX. I'm guessing a 2012 would fit the budget. Say what you will but American cars are still second rate to those overseas. I don't care that Cadillac set a "Nuerbergring lap record" with a CTS-V. There's still a gap in quality with America v foreign cars. More reliability and overall better bang for the buck. Even better is many foreign car companies are now manufacturing stateside.

Edit: Manual trans not an option? Best anti-theft out there anymore. Understandable if you live in a big city, but then again, why buy a car in the first place if that's the case?

Hyman Roth, what's your opinion? Comment below:

You can get a 2009- 2012 Cadillac CTS AWD with relatively low miles for under $24k. The 3.6 liter model is a quick car, but it's more practical and refined than your traditional "muscle car". It's nice but not overly flashy. Also, maintenance and repairs will be less expensive (particularly if you can find one with some warranty left) than the late model German cars you're looking at. Those 8 year old Audi and Benz sell for cheap because when something inevitably breaks it's going to cost you an arm and a leg.

West Coast rainmaker, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Subaru Impreza WRX STI and a Mitsu Lancer Evo both fit the bill - they are not exactly sexy, but it sounds like you want something fun to drive, low maintenance, and compatible with snow. These can be modded all to hell (for very reasonable rates - sub $10k) if for some reason stock isn't enough for you.

The VW Phaeton (only ran for a few years in the US) would also work, but good luck finding repair parts.

A Volvo s80 with a V8 is a nice car too. Not as quick as you'd think - 310 hp on a large sedan won't have you winning drag races - but it's a very solid choice. It's a pleasant drive, reliable, and affordable.

You should look into the G37x- they are very nice cars. Fast, look nice, easy to clean (props for having that be a criteria) and are built like tanks. You will have less problems with any Japanese car than you will with the Europeans, and repairs will not be as costly.

G37xS is a grown ups car.

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

WSO is not your personal search function.

Audi A5?

I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

My right hand is too busy. Anyway, if I wanted manual it would be with paddle shifters.

Get a BMW/Mercedes/Jaguar/Volvo instead of an Audi. How about a used S80? Should be within your budget.

Jags are ok, but they are not very reliable.

Mercedes are for snooty middle aged women and gay men.

Volvo, don't even ask.

BMWs are for insecure middle aged men and snooty teenagers.

Q: "What's the difference between an Audi driver and a BMW driver?"

A: "The BMW driver gives the finger, and the Audi driver gets the finger."

Hmmmmmmmmmmm I wasn't really talking owner stereotypes but ok.

I just find Audis really clunky and well ugly. IMO, Jags look amazing, BMWs drive amazing, Mercs are the most spacious and comfortable and Volvos are the most solid. I know these are stereotypes as well but I find that they're pretty well justified.

The old A4s are kind of bad looking. The A8s are the most aesthetic in my opinion.

Lexus IS - previous model to the current one. If you can find an IS 350, not only is it awesome to drive, but it's easy on the eyes compared to the giant bath tub that the Audi A4s you were talking about. (Even though I do like the inside and the feel of the drive - used my buddy's a few times).

I know it may add to the price, but I think as an option you should consider looking at cars with built in GPS / Media interface systems. I've always felt they make the interior look and feel a bit more luxurious if done right, and most cars have a really solid workability with them that you will come to love if you haven't had one before.

If you want a car that handles well in bad weather cross muscle cars and those Chryslers that don't handle well in good weather off the list.

I would say a WRX, Jaguar X Type, or any audi with quattro.

But if you don't need 4WD or grip in the wet, I would look at an e46 M3 or a C5 Z06 Corvette.

Thanks everyone. I've been doing some research, and apparently Audis do not posses any magical powers of seduction after all. I'll probably just get something that I like; maybe a General Lee (kidding).
