I dunno, I don't totally like Lexus interiors in that way either.

It's hard to explain, but the shapes and designs of small touches just don't look as aesthetically pleasing to me. Take the...

Also the weather strippings, plastic pieces, etc. are just not well fit nor of an attractive design. This is one area American or Japanese cars can't quite figure out yet. Those elements which even...

Why is BMW financial holding hostage almost $7,000 of my money....

This is why I didn't do MSD. I had a feeling getting $7K back if I didn't lease another BMW could be an energy sucking process. I've dealt with enough corporations, and they don't like giving you...

Everything is relative by nature. But even subjectives can be objectives.

For example; you think a Macan is ugly, but it got voted as a finalist, and only "SUV" to do so, for Best Car Design by...

Yeah. I couldn't imagine. I'd probably vomit, lol.

Otherwise it's a very nice interior. Just tactile quality and fit/finish is way behind previous Merc's. It doesn't feel as solid inside which is...

It's an issue with the seats that many cars have had, not physical damage. The C boards are full of the issue. The seats would turn shiny when cold and get that oxidation look when hot.

Yeah, loose door handles or panels inside the C is common. Panel misalignments (or design flaws, hard to tell which yet) are as well. Misaligned gas caps, etc. Check out the C boards, it's been a...

Yes but look at the quality of those C class interiors. A total disaster. The seats commonly bleed and turn oxidized. The panels and buttons have major alignment and fitment issues on too common of...

Ooh, sexy. Reminds me of my 2008 Malibu with Cadillac sauce dripped all over it. :D

The E interior got better since the early W212's I had, but yeah too blocky, hard and upright. Not any finesse to it.

The 5's is still probably best in class, imo. German interiors should be a...

WHAT? Lol.

The CTS console is cheap generic GM fare with insta-dated capacitive gimmick tech which is hardly intuitive or tactile, and heavily glossed up.

The details and minute fit/finish...

What is "Owners Choice" and how does it differ from a lease? The specifics listed above seem identical?

Lmao. Yeah Obama must've put the gun to the EU govts heads as well, to make them clamp down on fuel usage first and foremost.

On another note: I ran out of mustard for my sandwich. Thanks Obama.

Yes, I noted a bit of turbo lag. I wouldn't say it's "soft on the low end" (did I say that? Don't remember, lol). Just had a bit of empty space down low and then it'd hit hard. I find...

The real test will be when you get the next car and how you feel when an F10 drives by. :D

Though, having 2 in a row should hopefully get it out of your system. :p
