I've seen plenty of 7s or S-Klasse pulling trailers and up to mid-size sailboats back in Europe. In fact I still have a picture I took of a 740 pulling a nice yacht in Stockholm. What we typically...

However, at lower speeds it is actually good and pleasant, but as speed increases it gets noisy and...

It was really simple for me: the 7th series made it over the threshold of what I consider acceptable for the interior comfort, design and quality. The 5th series did not: noise levels, space and the...

I can tell you what I'm going to do: upgrade to the 19" or even 18" wheels and proper non-runflat tires. And live happy ever after.

Both of mine fender side cameras failed the same way - the picture was foggy, from the day 1. It took me going through three dealerships to get it replaced, but eventually (like in over 1 year) it...

I saw one in person at the dealership and sat in it. I'll say no to it.

I normally like to keep my cars for long, often for 10-15 years. Sometimes more. With the 750 I'm thinking 5-6 years, 150k or so. Will see how it holds up. Good so far.

I wish they kept the design language of that era.

Reliability wise: in 15 years ownership and 350k miles (including offloading) I had zero issues with the LX470. Exactly zero.
