I applaud that the gearshift has moved back to where it belongs, even if it is only a joystick.
I still think an A8 has a more harmonious design, but I dont want to own one.
On these pics it looks very well.

What's up with that dude's arm? It looks like he has a thumb on the outside of his left hand.

I'd have to agree. Current S Class looks better.

The new 7 looks nice but too much like a Lexus.
