    Buying A New Car

    I will be looking into buying a new car in the next week or so. For something that should be fun I have been going insane, between seeing what is out there, going over the package deals and finding the best car for my needs I have narrowed the search down to Audi or BMW. Both are great cars from what I can tell and I can't find anything that is different about the package both include and the price. My insurance will pretty much stay the same and I even got offered some great deals by other companies (shopping around) that can offer me discounts and such.

    Does anyone know which model is best with these cars. I don't want another SUV and I am looking into small 2 door coupes this time around, I've done the big car/SUV for too long and want a sporty change.

    Well let me be the one who throw rocks through glass houses.

    Let me suggest if you have the time, look at Consumer Reports. Also look at some of the car magazins and see if they have done a review on the cars you are looking at. I just bought a 2014 car but if you want good value buy a car that is one to two years old with low miileage. You will save big. Let the first buyer take the hit on the original purchase. Plenty of services out there to make sure your vehicle has not been in a wreck or is salvage. Just think if you are not paying cash like I did, the interest you will save.

    Thank you. I looked that the Audi TT and thought it was adorable but they stopped being made and that I don't like. I love Audi and test drove the A5 it's amazing but it's kinda plain to me from the outside. I have decided with much homework and tons and tons or research and talking to insurance companies that I am going with either the 2014 or 2015 BMW 228i coupe.

    Do they come with spare tires? I have noticed that those two brands do not provide spare tires, but rather an air pump. At least in Panama. I rather have a spare tire than a pump.
    You know it's love when the pain of being apart is greater than the pain of being together.

    They don't come with spare tires, the BMW uses run flat tires which are top of the line and very expensive to replace. If I ever did get a flat I would be able to drive 150 miles on it in order to get to a station or dealership to order a new one. Most luxury cars don't have spares because of this fact, plus they are 17" alloy wheels (rims) and if I remember correctly they are very hard to change and require a special tool. Not sure if that's right but like I said. 150 miles on a flat is more than enough to get to my dealership.
