2019 A3 Quattro (non-sline) 13k miles correct car - trade in to being $5700 of equity roughly. Keep or go with one of the options below?

2016 BMW 550i 65k miles
2017 BMW 340i (m-sport package) 31k miles
2015 Audi S4 (premium plus) 51k miles

Which one would you go with based on performance/tune ability plus reliability?

all within 2k of the same price.

I'd go with the 550i. At this point in my life I like larger cars. A V8 is great for cruising too.

It really depends on what you're looking for in a car.

That said, a clean S4 is hard to beat.

That’s true!

big things for me are reliability and tune-ability.

I want a dependable 400whp DD.(550i would have that from the get go, but I would like to be able to at least know I could run a piggy back or stage1 flash tune on it and it still be reliable longer term, since the weight of the 550i is a little more, I would like a little more out of it).

This would not be a track car, just for personal/street enjoyment.

Whatever one I choose would only see 4-5k miles a year on it.

do you know much about reliability from A holding up past 100/110k miles standpoint on these? (I know the standard maiantenance points but am curious to what platform may be the best)
