Question which one? not the usual choices lol

hi folks,

which one among those cars would you pick?
2001 Audi a6 2.7t quattro

2003/4 Saab 9-3 2.0t

2001/2 BMW e46 325

i'm leaning toward the Saab, because i love the styling of the car and i also like to be different(kinda). The only thing is that is is a FWD car . A close second would be the A6, but the manual one are hard to come by.
I wouldn't mind the E46, but its way too common for me(and i already have the E34)
i'd love to hear your opinions about those cars, especially the audi and the saab. I'd also love to hear you suggestions, with cars that are not too common on the streets

thanks

Surprisingly I voted on the Saab... hahaha...

Honestly, it depends what you are looking for. The A6 is a lot larger than the Saab and E46. If you wanted something like the A6, but smaller, get the S4. I really dont mean to be biased, but it is a much closer comparison size wise. Also it is alot easier to find in a manual. The tiptronic on the 2.7T sucks balls and will be the death of you.

I would consider changing the A6 to an S4, but if those three are your choices, I say go Saab. Although I do not know much about them.


P.S. I also learned the hard way, saab does not have a start kill on the clutch. Meaning, in most cars you must clutch in to start ignition, saab doesnt have this. Yes, I had the car in gear when I found out.

Audi unless you can afford a decent e46.

new saab looks pretty nice, i keep seeing a blue convertible 9-3 with grey seats...

that being said, im sure its actually a crappy car and depreciates faster than any car on the market

e46 or audi
