My husband's 528xi lease is coming up in Sept. Test drove the Audi A6 (and A5 convertible), MB C and E class and the BMW 328xi. Didn't like the C class, but did like the E350 (I assume he drove the E350 4matic sedan). The 528 or 530xi is not available right now according to his dealer, so we'd need to extend his lease a month or two to wait on the 2012's (or look at the 335xi, I think...). He currently has a manual transmission, and is having parting anxiety, but is ready to sacrifice that to keep the AWD (a MUST in the northeast). So, what are your thoughts on these cars? We are looking to lease... What other cars might we be missing that we should look at in this category? NEED AWD, and seating capacity for 5.
