My cousin has an ls460 so far flawless still cpo with 86k on it since 50 something no real issues, maintenance visits. audi i have no clue ive owned two mbs never an s class e and c and they were without issue. My aunt had matching 5 series with her husband and that ended up having some issues (n62 v8) now she has a newer c class and loves it
I dont know about the new s class either but from what i read there wasnt much of an issue besides a recall on a bearing in the drivetrain that whined loud and failed prematurely.
I will be in the market for a newer car soon. Love the bmw look but i will probably never buy a 7 again based off my experience
