Great cars ...But you do know the current cost of fuel?
I've no experience of the 4.0
When the new model came out alot of the motoring press reckoned it was a step backward compared with the older model.
4.4 in the E39.
Really? They seem faster, better handling, less body roll, superior traction control, more leg room, more reliable, more comfortable, better payload. In fact, appear to be better all round than the old 5 series. No idea about economy of course, and the twiddly thing on the centre console seems a bit strange at first.
Ooops, there you go, shows you how much I know Surely it should have been called the 544?
I've not driven a new one, so see my above comment....Actually you're right, the traction control on mine was shite, but at least you could turn it off.....
