Automobile Magazine S550 vs 750Li Comments

Posted today... "REVIEWS: 2009 Mercedes Benz S550"

I can now admit that the entire time I spent driving our Four Seasons BMW 750Li back to Michigan from California I was secretly thinking the S-class would have been a better ride. I much prefer the linear acceleration of the Benz's normally aspirated engine to the BMW's laggy-then-explosive thrust from its twin-turbo mill. Mercedes' active body control feels a bit more normal than any of BMW's fancy new dynamic drive control settings. And the cooling function on the Benz's front seats is much, much quieter than BMW's system.

In truth, those are probably all legitimate gripes. I hear ABC on the MB is great. I still think the 7-series is better.
