I want to use adverb ''Soon'' in a [be+to+Verb] construction sentence.

I am not sure which one is more idiomatic?

To use soon after ''be'' or at the end of the sentence?

A) I am soon to buy a new car

B) I am to buy a new car soon.

Sentence a or Sentence b more idiomatic?

or both OK?

    Both sound a little stilted to me.

    I suggest:
    I'm going to buy a new car soon. (I'd keep "soon" at the end.)
    I will buy a new car soon. (or) I will soon buy a new car.
