Wink Possible Replacement Sedan

Well as life keeps moving so do priorities. Nothing is set in stone but I have a feeling that I need a bigger / more luxorius car. So just looking around the past week and a half I have narrowed it down to these. I am open to suggestions as well. I am NOT planning on modding the car so the aftermarket will not be an issue plus I plan on going to back to an auto tranny. Nothing wron gwith stick and I love it but it makes car switching between my wife and me easier...besides i have a stang project to have fun with out in the driveway .

There is absolutly nothing wrong with my STi it is just my life has changed a lot since I bought it. I am still 95% sure I am going to keep her but I might jump at one of these if the opportune moment presents itself.

1. 2006 Acura TL - This has been my favorite so far....and I don't know why


2. 2007 Nissan Maxima - Love the Nav system and power delivery.


3. 2006 Dodge Charger R/T Daytona - Huge rear seat room and rear seat DVD.


4. Fully Loaded Mazda 6-5 door - Mazdaspeed not an option because it is stick.


Vote a way.

I have never been a big fan of Beemers unless they are the M series and I priced out a 3 series and let's just say the price got outta hand .

Mercedes offering in that price range is kind of bland. The C series just doesn't seem sporty enough to me for some reason.

I appreciate the suggestions and replies guys. I also appreicate the understanding as well. I love my STi and know that these cars are nothing compared to what the STi offers but family comes first to me now...not 0-60 times

Your not alone on the Charger comment. A LOT of people hate it. They have had this yellow Daytona at the dealership here since March. I hated the way it looked as well 'till I saw this one with my own eyes. It's another one of those cars that I like the way it looks when I see it rather than just seeing pictures of it.....i'm wierd .
