Interesting. Our 2012 didn't even come with First Aid Kit (confirmed by BMW) and we ended up buying the BMW one. That one has band aids (Nexcare)

I hear you, but in all my years with MB's I never had engine/drivetrain issues. Lots of electronic gremlins (well, before 2008 MY) but the actual cars were solid.

I have now had issues with rough...

The Pano roof on the S is a sliding one, the coupe doesn't open AFAIK. I have the Magic Sky (electro-chromatic) on our SL and it's a cool feature. When set to light, it is much brighter inside the...

That's just such an old stereo type. The F01 7 series is not a driver's car of the BMW glory days.

I'd buy that car for $40K in a heartbeat. Just would wish that those idiots would stop breaking the car while making their stupid video.

I would dispute that the 7 is more of a drivers car than the MB. The steering is numb and the suspension is inferior to the airmatic or MBC of the S550. Plus the Mercedes interior is on a different...

GL550's as all GL models are quite reliable and have a proven track record, so no big risks there. And service is decent and personal at least where we live.

Not BMW. It bothers me when the SA's...

Weird leather combo

We were recently at a resort in Sonoma and they used BMW's as shuttles to the golf course.

One was a 2013 F02 Active Hybrid and that car sported the smooth leather dash and door tops, yet the car...

Afaik, the only iPhone 5 cradle in the US is not the media cradle but a basic phone cradle. Not worth buying.

I m hoping that the next media cradle plays video using full screen.

Strangely, I don't look at cars as a straight numbers exercise but have come to the point that leasing is the only option for the reason that I love technology.

The new 7 front end?

Too much like the 3 series but at the same time it has more of a facelift feel than a next gen. model.

Give me something more dramatic

Nonsense. $1k for a replacement key is ridiculous no matter how much car you can afford.

Oh my: Mercedes releases first images of 2014 S Class

Drove the new S for half an hour or so and love it. The interior quality is a mile above the F02.
The interior ambient lights can be set to seven different colors and toned down for normal people. ...
