and my wife's mother is elderly. I often need to drive them places and the rear seat room and easy access is important. As I have the M'ster when I am in the go-fast mood, I wanted a comfortable car with an automatic for when I am stuck on the interstate in a snow storm for 2 hours. I also have two sons in college and I wind up driving them home once in awhile. Actually I wouldn't mind an A8 but the cost is far more than I want to put into a daily driver. Your comment about not keeping the car past warranty does concern me as I generally keep a car 5 yrs (60-70k mi).///
The Audi is a bigger car than the 3 series BMWs, do you need the extra space? The trunk of the 3 series is quite roomy. I have driven the new 3's, but not the iX model. As I recall, they ride about an inch higher. The other day I saw a silver 330iX with a sport package that was beautiful. Just stunning. Why not try one? I think a year or two down the road, there may be a continueing joy and delight with the BMW that may fade with the Audi. I have often heard not to own an Audi beyond the warranty. I have an old 1986 5000 S that I bought used and you do have to keep up with maintenance. If you go with the Audi, the 2.7 liter model seems to be the ticket for a reasonable price. Let us know your choice.
