What a treat it is to peek over your
shoulder as you leave it in a parking
lot. But this pales in comparison to
the effortless excelerating that awaits
your return. The engine and
transmission co-operate beautifully.
The auto-tranny seems to downshift at
just the right momment, never leaving
you in search of power. Steering is
predictable and responds as only a rear
drive car can. If you're still wanting
more, try overriding the
stability-control. Now the 540, already
responsive, really perks up ( be
cautious in wet conditions). Comfort is
splended as long as you're sitting up
front. Rear seats are comfortable, but
at 6'1" it's a litttle cramped.
PERFORMANCE. She's comes alive between
40-120mph, giving you all the confidence
in the world. Classy, and understated
for what it is capable of. Heated seats
& stearing wheel on cold mornings. Very
Larger alloys are a must. Electrical
system does not inspire confidence.
Bumbers and side-skirts lack aggression.
CUP HOLDERS? Must be german humor.
