I really like the F01/02 rear and some angles (better than the G12) but it can't hold a candle to the MB in anything else. The BMW is completely out-classed at everything.

One thing I forgot to mention is that the car is already at the ride height I like, so no need to lower it. Our BMW looked like an SUV until we had the H&R springs installed.

The lot of features on the G12 feels like a checklist of items I wanted; better steering, better suspension (we'll see), better interior, less plastic, panorama roof, better massage functions.
