Yes, the E38 is certainly one of the few truly beautiful cars on the road. Still looks more modern than most "modern cars". Can't say the same about the newer iterations of the 7th.

It is still a baby. 100-200k are the teenage years. 300k+ I'm gussing is coming of age. There is two 500k+ here, same deal.

I was 120% happy with all Lexus cars I owned, and to be honest with you I thought that I had no reason to leave them as well. And I'm for one not considering an LS or GS any less pleasant to drive...

I can't see it is changing anything. The N63 is as "good or bad" as all the other V8s BMW had. The BMW reliability was always something (at least for the last 20-30 years) you'd take into...

22 look terrible, the 20s look awful. I'm on the 19th winter tire setup now, not looking forward to go back to the 20s standard summer that came with the car. The 18 or 19 seem to flow much better...

For me it would be:
1. first choice Lexus LS600h, or whatever comes next
2. second choice Merc S550
It pretty much stops there, no other attractive options that I can see.

Better than the Audi by a long shot, but I would consider the Merc S more reliable especially longer term.

The current F01 is pretty much a slightly re-worked exercise on the outgoing generation Lexus LS design. Nothing wrong with that, that's why some people like me included the BMW 750 into the shopping...

I think I personally will wait for the new Lexus to come out next year, and then decide between the Lexus and the Merc S-klasse. If the BMW shows up with a nice 7th, even better - more choice.
