      Where do you go?

      RS5 Sportback?
      Used S7?
      Used AMG E63 Wagon?
      Something even more out there?

      I don't have a charging location so Model S is out.

      I saw on local classifieds a new C43 wagon but it was little over $80k!

      American prices: used E63 wagon all the way! Or Stevlio QF if you can consider it a wagon.

      I was hoping some of the oldest W213's would be down in that price range, but I'm not surprised they aren't. Next best thing:

      You can get $20k off MSRP of a RS5 sportback, I'm looking at one this week as it's a little bigger than the RS3, if you'd like to come fly out and get one LMK, I'll pass on the salesmans info and you can chit chat. IMHO new > used at that price point, ain't nobody got time for dealing with lemons and sh*t.

      20k off seems a little over zealous. Albeit there are great deals 20K off seems a little too good to be true

      Golf R -> 40K
      Golf Sportwagen 4 Motion -> 20K
      Swap everything from R to Sportwagen -> 25K (wild ass guess! )
      Sell Golf hatch 4Motion -> -20K

      Voila, the $65,000 Golf R wagon.

      Or, be lucky enough to live in Europe where VW will do that for you and you get a warranty:

      You're trading one of the most unique sounding performance motors for one of the blandest.

      Import a Canadian C43 Wagon? I don't believe they come with a FMVSS sticker though, so you'd have to get a letter from MB saying that it's compliant, that works if it has a CMVSS sticker.

      I didn't realize that there were options other than the E63 Wagon.

      Used M5s are tickling that price range (I know it's not a wagon/coupe, but you should get it anyway)
      E63
      RS5 SB
      S7 is not going to be worth it compared to getting the RS5
      Stelvio QF is an interesting option

      The biggest gripe I have with the e63 is fuel economy... California gas is costly...

      It's definitely at the top of the list, but is the Rs5 really available with 15-20k off?

      I'd go for something different than the typical German stuff and get the Stelvio.

      No care.

      I'd go E63 for that price. Soooo much you can do with them. My biggest gripe about those is the outdated tech. I would expect fuel economy to be atrocious.

      I didn't think a glorified minivan was an option, and sporty / fun is on the list too, though I suppose a Corolla could be marketed as, sporty and fun

      Does America get the Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo?
      That would be the end all solution, otherwise my list would be similar :

      RS5 Sportback
      used S7
      used AMG E63
      used Porsche Panamera (Gran Turismo but rare find in Canada)

      RS5 is getting a very mild refresh for 2020, I'd wait for that or search for a '19 at a deeper discount
