So, what do you think?

Car is too small for my taste and the design is too rounded for that size.

But with that engine it'll be a fun toy.

The LS400 definitely woke up the German car makers as they went down the road of charging more and more for their cars.

NEW G11 2016 7 Series fully exposed

If the current base is that close to a 7 then the BMW is a true bargain ;)
Still, by any measure, the LS is an outdated car and has been for many years. Again, just my personal opinion...

But you...

IMO, the LS has never been a challenger. It is a well build, highly reliable lower priced copy of a German car.

I know that a trickle charger will help, that's why I ordered one.

My point is that I shouldn't need one, since our MB with more electronics doesn't need one either and that the battery should...

German car mags are talking about 200kg reduction which would put it into 440 or so lbs.

I don't get what you say about the exhausts. If you have 2 cylinder banks (V8), two exhaust pipes are normal. Form equals function.

I believe you are thinking about an inline 6?

Well put :D

Also, am I the only only that thinks that the steering wheel looks awfully close to the S-Class Coupe one? Button layout, aluminum frame, overall design?

Unfortunately that is the same with the dash/nav.
It will be lighter but still much too evolutionary (and bland) to me.
