My point is that it wasn't a bad orange (well, the car pulling maybe but that one is common too). Everything was operating as designed, so it it wasn't a problem car.

I felt quite the opposite. I liked the looks of our F12, but the car felt like a big boat with numb steering that kept on pulling to the right.

Same as I. But the demographic for a 7 series buyer is much older than you and so is the one for the S-Class.

Point is that age isn't worth bringing up IMHO. Know a lot of old guys in BMW's and...

I am puzzled that these tire discussions are going on literally for years. Every model seem to have its own tire thread and the results are always the same.

Also, is it just me or are the bumpers on the M6 a slightly different color? Another reason to use...

LED AE bulbs leftover

Not sure if anyone is interested, but I had a nice set of LED Angel eyes for our '12 750li.

Just couldn't stand the yellow rings. The car is gone now but I have the LED AE's sitting in a drawer.

I am a geek and consider gesture control still a gimmick. Just like the remote parking. All much less relevant than a proper exterior design IMO.

Lexus had done their homework and were able to successfully launched their brand with the LS400. The Germans definitely felt they had a safe market and were caught off guard. You are right.

True, but when Lexus was introduced, the LS400 was $35k (to $40k) and the Mercedes 560SEL was $75k.
Lexus sold these cars at a loss to break into the market. Half price is a bit more compelling ;)
