If money is no object MB E63 AMG wagon is pretty cool. If you are looking for something not too expensive and not thirsty with gas then you should look at audi A4 2.0T avant. Don't you own an M3?
AWD would be nice, automatic a must and the budget is around 50k. I am planning on driving the Audi, the styling is nice.
The M3 is my fun car, this would be for her and she can not drive a stick. I am not secure enough to drive a wagon or an automatic yet.
edit: globe, thanks for the recommendation but I think my wife will want something a bit more luxurious. I think leather, heated seats, etc will be must-haves for her as well as the automatic tranny.
