I am in market for getting another car

i am thinking of getting an SUV mostly (i want a GTR but the streets condition is not in favor for it and its ridiculously high price is another thing)

i am thinking between the following cars (2nd hand not new), my top color combination is white exterior/ red interior but not available on all cars:

  1. Infiniti FX50S/QX70S
    • My top choice, reasonably priced
    • V8 390 HP (but not as strong as it is supposed to be)
    • Good looks outside
    • Nice interior feels luxurious (but doesn't come with red lather as i want)
    • Huge rims (21", not so wide though 265/45)
    • Sport breaks
    • Expensive spare parts
    • Model Started 2009 - coming to end of its cycle
  2. Toyota Land cruiser
    • Very Bad interior
    • Overpriced (but Resale value is Great)
    • Very Reliable
    • Cheap parts
    • Heavy and horse power is low
    • New model is coming 2016 (prices might drop little)
  3. Nissan Patrol:
    • Great Look
    • Good interior
    • Top model is expensive but nice
    • Horse power (400) is fine for top model
    • Expensive, and Price goes down ALOOOT after buying
  4. Infiniti Q56/QX80:
    • Same as patrol size and shape, more luxurious
    • Surprisingly good price
    • I like patrol more honestly (tail lights are not nice, very small for such huge car)
  5. Lexus LX570:
    • I like this car alot alot, But its TOO EXPENSIVE (i think out of my range even for 2nd hand one)
    • Great interior and exterior
    • I think its the best choice except for the price 
    • New shape in 2016 (maybe price will go down little but i dont think so)
    • Resale value is Great
  6. BMW X5M:
    • I just love this car
    • Super Engine (560 HP)
    • Great rims, Huge tires, Great Breaks
    • Amazing car seats, nice interior
    • New model came (but i am ok with the older one)
    • Price is acceptable
    • Maintenance is really expensive
    • Resale value is BAD
    • i have concerns regarding A/C

Any other options? but not Porsche cayenne although price is fine, and not range rover

If you're going for second hand then I'd stick with the Japanese cars. I'm personally in love with the new Lexus NX. Not sure how much they cost though but my guess is under 15K? http://www.lexus.com/models/NX

its definitely NOT what im looking for!!!

its a 4 cylinders 2.0 L with 230 HP.....waaaaaay away from what im looking for

regarding Japanese cars..... i love japanese cars, im totally in love with them,

my current car is Infiniti G35 sedan 2008 which is great car!

thats y my list has 5 japanese cars and one german only!

regarding japanese SUVs, i dont know y they dont make a competitor to the X5M and cyenne turbo s in terms of power

the most powerful japanese SUV is Lexus LX570 S (supercharged 450HP)

anyway

ur suggestion is not what im looking for

Get a Toyota Prius and just slap a couple Lexus badges and you're good to go. You'll probably be the first one to own a Prius in the whole Kuwait, there are a couple in the UAE that I'm aware of.

i think i will go with the Land Cruiser VXR (5.7 L, 381 hp) full options (2011 or 2012)

just get whatever car you like and can afford, all cars can do the speed limit and more, some cost more to buy, maintain and fix.

i say buy a cheaper new car with full insurance and warrenty and drive if for 3 years then change it and so on.

beats buying a used 7k car thats showing signs of wear and tear and so on.

So what car did you end up getting, I hope not one of those Inifinity's 

They look the same no matter what model year it is, very outdated

Landcruisers never get old, hope you both are treating each other right if you bought it..

ask me about maintaining a 2003 6 cyl GXR in Kuwait. Not many LC forums have this models in discussion as they were mainly limited to GCC markets and local mechanics just rely on trial and error
