Considering another 750i (2012) , Maybe a 740i, or even a 550. A fiend got an Audi 8 (S series, thought) that I really liked. I have discarded European delivery - this time around.

Any thoughts on the above options, particularly from someone that moved to any of these from a 750?

When would be the best time between now and end of February to try to get the best deal?
(Southern CA)?

Comments are much appreciated.
Your choices are fairly limited.
Porsche Panamera: A strong performer in a butt ugly (pardon the pun) package. The seats are too hard and small, ride more "sporty" than I like. The butt is very ugly, and a "wagon' style body in a $100K+ car makes no sense.
S550: Too big, and getting bigger. Build like a bank vault.
A8: The new king of the hill. This is a beautiful car, and does away with my pet peeves about BMWs: Run-Flat Tires, Forces Auto Start Stop, No Dipstick for oil.
Lexus LS: For those who like the luxurious interior, but do not care much about the driving.

You may want to think about Porsche 911, the Range Rover, or the X5 as alternatives as well.

Good luck!
