Car folks and professionals, I am looking to upgrade my 4 door sedan. I need more space for my baby, and driving around executives. I am also now a sales manager, so I need something a little more "flashy" and luxurious. So I have narrowed it down to a smaller size SUV.

The new car/SUV needs to be: manly, stylish, have at least 20 city MPG, and have all of the technology (Nav, sunroof, etc...)

I am thinking about getting the following:
A) 2012 GMC Terrain SLT2, $32,900, 0% for 60 mths, rear dual DVD players, 22 MPG
B ) 2013 Chevy Equinox LTZ, $31,500, 2.9% for 60 mths, comes with roof racks, 22 MPG
C) 2013 Audi Q5 2.0 premium plus, $46,000, smart key, sun/moon roof, 20 MPG

....all are fully loaded, and have Nav, sunroof, back up camera, etc...

I really want the Q5, it makes me happier, I see myself driving it, it is fun to drive, and it is the only true luxury vehicle on my list. But in a side by side comparison it makes much more sense to go with either A or B.
A and B are exactly the same on the inside. Exterior, I like the GMC more.
My company will pay for 100% of my gas for A and B, only 90% of gas in C.

Question, on the 2012 GMC, they are only giving me $2000 off the MSRP. Is that good, how low can dealerships usually come off the price?
Another question, are dealer fees negotiable? They range between $800-$1100

Thanks in advance.....For the help, here s a picture of Broolyn Decker

Get the Audi. A car payment is a car payment. Is a hundred dollars a month extra going to matter in the end? Especially if you feel better about your profile..as you know confidence is half of sales anyway.

One word of advice if you've never owned a euro car. Either pay it off before the warranty runs out or sell it. Having a payment and paying for euro parts would be crazy expensive.

Thanks, good point. I owned a fairly new Porsche a few years ago, and once I figured out what long term maintenance was on those things, I sold it! I plan on buying something to drive for the next 5 years at most

Between those 3 I would buy the GMC.

Personally though, I would get an older LX 470 from Lexus.
