    OOO! Fun! I would probably do the RS again; but I might go with a very low mileage 16/17 RS and then maybe a FiST!?!?! Love my 18, but not sure I would pay the premium for it.

    If I was going all out on 1 car, I may go M3. Wouldn't mind lowering my overall payments though, so maybe my Nissan Pulsar GTI-R and some sort of inexpensive full size SUV.

    I'm happy with the RS, but assuming a world where it was never available to me... maybe I would've bought that first gen BMW X1 with the straight six. I almost did it last time around. They were running ~32K CPO with low miles.

    I might get a ford gt, but it's 12x more and doesn't have a winter wheel set

    An LE RS would be awesome. The only other car that has captured my attention is the Alfa Romeo Guilia Quadrifoglio and that is waaaay north of my price point.

    Tough question.

    Today.... If ford made a 4 door Coyote Mustang, I'd trade the RS in a heartbeat. Especially if they can get it all wheel drive. Throw a twin screw supercharger on it, and call it done.

    Back in time 3 years ago when I ordered.... Probably would've kept my ST, and bought a 2016 fully loaded super crew F150 with a Coyote.

    I like the RS. It's amazing when used as it was intended. But I feel it's wasted on everyday stuff though.

    Heh, I drove one this weekend. I liked. But even a 6k mile used 2018 was $64k. Dealer said they would do $60k, but that is still big wood for a used Alfa. Maybe if they got a bit cheaper and prove to have non-Alfa like reliability... But the SOUND! How hard that 8spd shifts! Loved it. I would love to own one one day, but know I probably would be sad when I go to sell it in a year after not being able to drive it for like 10 months... :P

    This is the one I drove: https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...928_isFeatured

    Disliked the color combo though. Feel like it should be red, with the black badge kit. And carbon roof. But the back seats don't fold down, which is super annoying. We pulled up a regular Giulia because we couldn't figure out how to get the rear seats down the Quadrifoglio. We quickly realized that the Q4's seats didn't fold down when we looked in the trunk of the regular Giulia.
    @EvanRyan I feel you there. I try to drive my wife's Rav4 to work as much as possible; ~42mi round trip exclusively highway. 30-35mi of it is sitting in traffic. I love being in the RS and being able to just get in front of anyone with it's power. But it's such a waste of miles with the stop and go. My wife's like "you HAD to have that stupid car and you HATE driving it!" When I try to explain to her why it's a waste of miles, she doesn't quite get it. Oh well. I tried to take her for a real drive in the RS this weekend, and she hated that too.

    My girlfriend will have nothing to do with my RS. it's not an option ever if she's going. We either have to go in her car(2018 Kia Optima) or my F150(which she's not too fond of either(It's hard to get in and out of, as well as too loud)

    Saw that Alfa you looked at. Gorgeous color. Makes me miss the color of my ST.
