Don't know about that. The point is, though, they have complained about e60's steering on some tests and placed it behind A6, and now they're saying e60 was great, why change anything and placed it behind A6 again in comparo. The e60 test was done by Tony Swan, btw.

Sorry, my mistake. I certainly didn't have this problem with my 650i, a car similar to the E60.

I have had problems with Tony Swan in the past. I even called him personally twice in Ann Arbor and left messages for him to call me back. Of course, he didn't. I thought one of his complaints about a BMW was inaccurate. He seems to have an underlying prejudice against BMWs.

Once I've driven a car I don't need anyone to tell me how it feels etc. It is what it is to me not what anyone else writes. It is however good that problems like these are reported in the big mags since it's more likely bmw will listen.
