Default Buying a new car, recommendations appreciated

I have been looking into a car to purchase for myself. There's a lot of options and I personally took a liking to these:

BMW M3, M4, 528i, x4
Audi A6
Cadillac CTS V Sedan, CTS Sedan (2.0T)

I'm 18 and intend to use this car to drive myself and my girlfriend, since I dont plan to have kids soon.
Although I've researched these extensively, I would still appreciate some recommendations or preferences. I live in colorado so snow is a problem as well.
I really like all of these, so it's almost a coinflip.

Holy cow, those are some seriously nice cars for an 18 year old. We just had a pretty lengthy discussion on this forum with another lad your age encouraging him to the best of our ability to lower his sights a bit as young drivers tend not to be as careful with the amount of power those cars have. Pretty much all of those are incredibly powerful for someone so inexperienced on the road.

Considering that it's statistically proven that younger drivers are much more likely to wreck, would you consider any of these cars replaceable if you were to total it? If not, then you need to lower your price range to something that is replaceable.

That tends to be true at any age, but especially at your age when income is a little less disposable. I'm making some broad assumptions about your situation, so if these cars are totally replaceable, then I say have at it and BE CAREFUL.

I'd go for the M3, M4, or CTS V. Pretty much anything but the x4.

I'm guessing since you listed the M4 that you're looking to buy new. With the exception of the M4, you can easily find any of those at half the price used.
