Over the past few weeks, I have test
driven them all...from the MB S class
to the Lexus and finally the BMW.
Performance and handling wise, the BMW
is unsurpassed. The Mercedes is a
little more luxurious, but it
felt "heavy" while the BMW just
responded to whatever you asked it to
do. The 740il delivers performance
while bathing the owner with luxury. I
agree with most that the nav. system
could be improved upon...and they did
it with the 2002 5 & 7 series. BMW is
on top of their game and should be on
top of your list as well. This is my
2nd BMW and will not be my last! Do
yourself a favor...get one too!
The look and "the lines" of the car.
The sound system is solid.
The nav. system takes some getting used
to, but it is reliable and handy.
