Traded 94 Legend for the Carbon Bronze 2008 TL/S. The TL/S same or better features than Niss/BMW for less $$. The 3.5 gets the TL/S moving quickly & oversize brakes offer smooth braking. Cruising at 70mph is the norm as one doesn't recognize the "speed" so pay attention. Quiet cabin, heated seats/mirrors, nav, XM, reverse cam, CD, DVD, smooth yet firm ride, great acceleration, takes curves like a slot-car. Speeds > 100mph, smooth & silky w/no vibration. Driving this auto since 12/2007, its once again FUN TO DRIVE! Absolutely love it!
What comes standard in TL/S comes as extra in BMW and G35. Smooth/quiet ride, nice acceleration, impressive handling, overtaking other autos with plenty of power to spare. With this automobile one KNOWS the 3.5 will deliver. Plenty of trunk space, roomy interior. Did I say acceleration!!!
Stereo sound is a bit fuzzy and takes some getting accustomed too. Would prefer 18 inch wheels as standard. Toss the rear-deck lid "spoiler" as it appears an after-thought and doesn't compliment the "line." Toss the seat-belt non-use reminder. Steering radius is a little "long in the tooth."
