Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches

I just got out of my 7 considering a Panamera.
I'm thoroughly enjoying my Panamera. I am not a gearhead, per se, but I know what I like. I knew I wanted the xDrive 750i when I first saw the F01/02, and it turned out being the best BMW for had all the power I needed ( the M6's was great but mostly went to waste) and the comfort and looks of the car were off the chart IMO. So, no negatives whatsoever regarding the 7 Series for me. However, I've been attracted to the Panamera ever since one pulled away from me, like I was standing still, one early morning on the Beltway. Good looks is a subjective thing, and I've always considered the Pana as uniquely good-looking. Mine is the 4S, which means that it's an all-wheel-drive V8; it has the Chrono Package which, in addition to launch control, gives it 3 combinations of power, shift, and suspension settings. People who've previously rode in my 7 commented that there is no comparison to the comfort and accommodations of the Pana...although I still regard the front seats of the 7 (mine had the premium seats) as the best I've experienced. Also, for what it's worth, the V8 in the Pana is 400 HP and normally aspirated.
