ReviewI agree with all the positive comments, which you'll note hint at some flaws in the design and operation of the car but do not in any way detract from the experience of owning one. I didn't see much substance in the negative reviews- was it the same guy writing them all? This car is fantastic, fast comfortable and smooth. Garners a lot (repeat, a lot!) of stares and comments. True luxury that mass-produced BMW's and MB's can't begin to match (Mercedes had to come out with the Maybach line to even try). My biggest complaint is the rear seat area, it squeaks rattles and shakes whenever you hit a bump, due to a suspension that is quite active and "vocal" over bumps. Reliability has been great.
Best FeaturesLeather and wood (available in so many combos); great automatic climate control; excellent stereo; car is fast, smooth and comfortable. You'll likely be the only one on the block with one. Very good design inside and out, with excellent packaging of interior space (except for chintzy cup-holders).
Worst FeaturesMost improvements have been addressed in later models (nav system, bluetooth connectivity, ride quality over bumps). Wish I could afford a new one!
