I disagree, the atom is very luxurious. Ill take steel beams over quilted leather anyday.

There is an incredibly sinister soviet limo in the Terror Museum in Budapest but I can't find a pic.

Still, I'd have to chose a black Mercedes G4

I just swapped from S class to E class, and I actually prefer it. There is not as much room in the back, but there is more than enough with the front passenger seat fully forward, and I actually prefer the slightly more understated ride. I would recommend it, especially if like me you live where a driver is affordable.

Do you miss the creature comforts and ride quality of the S? The size and nimbleness of the E-class are great.

The only, admittedly trivial, thing is that I don't like asking the driver to change cds, radio stations etc. Ride quality is not noticably different.

I drive myself on sundays and some evenings and really prefer driving the E to be honest.

I would love to be driven around in the new BMW 7-series. What a perfect car!

Are you comparing the new S to the new E? or previous S to the new E? Sounds like the former to me.

The new 7 to me is a significantly better looking car than its predecessor. BMW makes a fine car.

I saw the new 7 recently. It is very luxurious. The stereo is not as good as the Lexus but it sounds pretty good.

As a detailing enthusiast I must politely differ. The paint quality of the S is absolute crap. Orange peel city.

It's basically lower quality build than either Lexus or BMW yet it is sold at a great premium. Boo.

No No...if you want to make a statement, then what you really need is...a motorcade.

This reminds me of an old Wallpaper* article from 1999 about Tripoli, which included a blurb about how Kadaffy traveled around.

Nah. If you're not landing your Hermes helicopter wherever the hell you want in the middle of the street then you are not making a statement.

Ah, you are a hard man to please AF

...but the S calss still wins all the comparison tests.
