The high end British and German marques always have odd issues, sounds, software updates, pecuilar noises that come and go. BUT....I love high end cars, but they require a lot of patience and being "open minded". LOL
When living in Switzerland I spent a lot of time driving to our other European facilities and had the opportunity to put a lot of high speed highway miles on our cars (mainly Mercedes).

Besides spending insane amounts on gas, multiple sets of tires per year and plenty of brake sets, I have never had that much fun driving

That said, the cars performed flawless without breakdowns or displaying the kind of annoyances I am experiencing with them in the US. I'd probably compare my experience to your Ford Raptor one.

But then 99% of my time sitting in the car is in slow city traffic. I have to admit that I am listening to the smallest of noises here while I couldn't have cared less going 150+ down the Autobahn
