I traded in a 2003 BMW 7 series for this car. It is great! The exterior styling is much better in real life and gets a lot of positive comments. The interior is near perfect. The seats are comfortable and everything is logically laid out (except for the controls next to the steering wheel which you cannot see). The navigation system is intuitive and easy to understand and input. I had XM satellite radio installed and have the Mark Levinson option, which makes it hard to leave the car sometimes. I paid sticker price and after owning it a few weeks think it is worth more. A much better car than the BMW.
Navigation and audio system, power and smoothness of the engine, interior layout, seat comfort, head-turning exterior.
Different location for button panel to the left of the steering wheel, no local weather information, half wood- half leather steering wheel feels funny (the woods tends to get sweaty and sticky!)
