Just got back from a month in Europe. The Panny is god over there...everyone loves the look as do I.

It's just a matter of taste...Germans hate fast food, Americans love the crap
I think this is somewhat of an exaggeration. Personally, I love hatchbacks and wagons. Last car was a wagon, would have bought an F11 if they came here. Thought long and hard about an E61 but the N54 scares me.

I saw a Panamera on Friday in the parking lot of the restaurant I went to and spent some time looking at it. Surprisingly, the wife likes it more than I do, which is strange considering she usually is more conservative than I am.

it's still ungainly. Very long, very bulbous in the back.

Heaven is where the police are British, the cooks are French, the cars are German, the lovers are Italian and it is all organised by the Swiss.
