Which would make the best daily driver?

Question

It's amazing how fast CL63 AMGs depreciate. I have found a one owner loaded 2010 model with 42k miles, a 4 year/50k mile CPO warranty that had an MSRP of over $140k, for $62k. How much lower can they go?

I have seen AMG CL's from the 2003-2005 era in the mid to upper $20K range. So, if history has anything to say, they can drop a lot more.

That's because you do not want to own one after the warranty expires. I'm keeping my search to low mileage CPO cars with at least 4 years/ 50k miles in warranty left.

I'd say 62K with CPO is a good buy. A lot of car for that money.

What about the new Audi S7? I think that is one of the best looking cars. I don't know when it goes on sale in the US though.

I agree with a lot of the others though. The CTS-V Wagon would be my choice.

Wagon? Why I did look at the CTS-V coupe, I could not see myself driving a shooting-brake. While I acknowledge that they are fast and luxurious, I am just now a fan of the angular look of new Caddys. And, I prefer the new RS5 over the S7.

If you were satisfied with the S5 then take the RS5.

I agree, as long as you have a CPO warranty to cover the occasional random $5000 thing that breaks.

Love the RS5 idea, but it may feel like buying the same car twice, which for me would be boring.
