Attracted by styling and beautiful interior, and of course, typical German handling qualities. Ride and comfort exceeded expectations. Some quality glitches but nothing major. Still as good as new with 65K.
Styling features, stiff road feel for a large car, very drivable, peppy but not a hotrod. Very comfortable on the highway, better than any other car I have ever driven. And there's that 4.2L engine to get you going if need be.
Quality control was only average, not nearly what I expected from a $50M car, not much different from a Mercedes or BMW or, frankly a VW.
