if it were for me i would pick between the Audi and S2000.
the 2003 BMW x5 4.6is is more like a family car
and if your going for something sporty i would pick the S2000 if not the audi, and also take in consideration that if your not getting it from a dealer and the Audi breaks down Audi parts are more dificult to find an expensive.

The Audi & BMW are the only one that can handle to winter. S2000, its and ok car. Lots of aftermarket same for the Audi though. I am partial to Audi styling, simple. But their engines are fair. The BMW, well if you like the name do it. S2000, fun to drive, not the fastest and its only a 2 seater. I would go Audi - Turbo, AWD? some models maybe?
S2000 - 4 cyl, light, nimble, aftermarket huge, RWD, but its a vert. and the hardtop is $2,500+
BMW - I just think they are over priced, heavy, somewhat fast, nice styling, not super reliable, more short term fun.

Seriously though I think its a joke when you see a big truck without a hitch on it. Personally the only reason I see to own one is if you tow or haul stuff.

I'd go the S2000. Good quality fast car that looks sweet with some 18inch chromes....

And taking your logic on domestic cars, the audis are out forever as their reliability was crap in the 80s, they even caused deaths from "unintended acceleration" Just because for a little while they seemed to be doing better doesn't mean anything.
I'd have to go with the x5 out of the 3 cars. It will likely be the lowest in maintenance + repairs cost, depending on current mileage and length of time you plan to own them. Thats a big piece of difference here, the S4 wouldn't be bad if it has 40-60k miles on it, but the twin turbo setup would worry me if it already had 90k on it. Also you didn't list the year on the S2000.
Really like a few people said these are 3 completely different cars. a sporty sedan (I've driven the 2001 S4 before), a midsized SUV, and a small convertible....

Trucks are made for towing /hauling **** or offroad driving. At least if you have a sports car it is designed for flat surfaces where it is always driving on. Sporst cars on the road that never race make 100 times more sense than a giant ass truck on the road that never hauls or tows.
Trucks are just a ****ing hazard. They always shoot rocks everywhere, prevent you from seeing signs on the freeway and burn a lot of gas. I ****ing HATE it when i'm on my bike and trucks are shooting rocks and **** at me. If a truck is used for its real purpose I'll deal with it. If you are driving one to compensate for something then you are a douche.

And yet mullet, still no real answer as to if the "enormous amount of evidence otherwise" that you mention is true then why do taxi companies and state/local government including canada use US vehicles? they put a lot of miles on vehicles, and for both the cost of unreliability is very high - with taxis it means loss of income as well.
I'll even agree that in the small 4 cylinder world, it took the american cars a long time to catch up. But in the full size rear wheel drive v8 category, I don't believe there is evidence to support what you say

I own an '07 X5 4.8 and it feels like it's got 250, not 350 under the hood.. I average 16mpg in mixed driving, but I don't drive it often. I'd go with a used 3 or 5. Get an xi if you have harsh Winters. I agree with the Subaru, great cars.
