Test drive each one.

Personally, I'd take the 745Li just cause its nicer and "more pimp" than the CL500 if you will.

its actually not. the cl500 is the more pimp choice in my opinion. the 7 is super unpimp car, unless you are getting driven around in it. the cl is the drivers choice. i hate the steering wheel on the 7 its filthy

What are you talking about? Ever hear of the 7 Forty Fizzah? I bet you have. But have you ever heard or seen a rapper or other "pimp" person driving a CL500? Nope.

They drive like boats too.

I can't believe we are comparing cars based on their "pimpness"............. If that's all you are concerned about.......... get an Escalade with spinners............. save the fine german cars for people who understand what they are and appreciate them .........

This is funny. Just the other day a teenage patient in our office admired my white 745i. He said it was "pimpin." It was sitting next to my partners MB E55 and my car was definitely more pimp. I personally don't like the looks of MB's and see too many of them on the road in my town.

Cool This one's Easy...

Get the Quarter-To-Eight! (7:45/745Li) just in case some of you do not understand the lingo.
