I had the same thing on my 550i. Car went nuts and a ton of warning lights went of. I kept driving from Brooklyn to my dealer in oyster bay and barely made it into the driveway. I couldn't even...

Comments are subjective but seem to be near universally against this car. In the shadow of the new S, BMW needs to come out with a show stopper and this looks like a very very mild refresh. I'd...

I wasn't sure to go into detail here, but since this thread derailed (and boy do we need it looking at that Lexus) and the F01/2 forum not being the best place for a MB thread I figured why not.

I just don't get why these companies don't just go for it. BMW did it with the i8. Caddy should make that Elmiraj, and BMW should make this. Don't they know they'd clean house?

Oh and a 740i weights 4310lbs now- you are saying they claim it will drop 122lbs?

A few outlets have looked at the actual weight loss of the new f150. It was closer to 450lbs. And that's on a steel bodied huge truck where there had been minimal investment in weight loss...

Since a typical body structure of a vehicle this size weights 600-900 lbs, I don't see them shaving 700. Shaving 700lbs on a full size sedan is a monumental undertaking. It's not like they can move...

I SERIOUSLY doubt BMW dropped the weight to under 4000lbs from its current 4600+ (750il). They may have shed 2-300, but I doubt more.

Of course. They wouldn't compare. Did you not just disprove yourself?

Anyone who says the current 750 out performs the new S has not driven the new S. That's been proven.

I looked long and hard at the A8 4.0. With an APR tune it's as fast or faster than an S8. Really nice car.
