The 7-series was always the runt of the litter to my eyes, except perhaps the last 5-series which I loathe.
I maintain that after 5 years the S-Class is still a better looking car than the new 7. The S just oozes class from the outside, and really, when buying such a big car who cares if it doesn't have the nth degree of handling ability? It's a better riding car anyway.
I love the new 5. But of the Bangle cars I think the previous 6 is far better than the new one - which looks like your quintessential RUC - Rich Uncle's Car. Not that I have anything against them, rich or poor
