Re: BMW E65 7 series vs MB W140

Oh.Sorry. That's why it's good to buy the car 'used' especially for the luxuries car.

You get your dream car and you don't have to pay heavy.

no problem zeq, I know it was dumb But I think it was worth it! The S600 W140's are the BEST! They are really really nice.

You are exactly right. Buying used is smart.

I bought my 96 S500 used. It is a good car.

I dunno. I kinda forgot. In the end though, when they took the car away, the car lost about $40,000 USD. in only 6 months with about 2,000 miles on it.

I dunno about that either. I went to my local dealer, and saw 2 sitting in the showroom. No one bought them yet, one silver, one black. And in Southern California, there are A LOT of rich people, AND, my local dealer is one of the biggest in the United States, so I guess everyone who wanted to buy one, already did. I don't know the number of that either, but believe it or not, there is a decent amount of them.

Paris Hilton drive one i think. I saw in some website.I havent seen any SLR over here yet.

I wouldn't want one though. Even if i won a SLR at the lottery or something. I would sell it and buy something like BMW 7 or something..

These exotics cars are not kind of cars for me.

We finally got the new W221 here I saw one at the local dealership, I think they look good in the flesh. Someone must be buying it not bad for a city of 120k.
