Hey NRPHLLY

NRPHLLY,

Your profile shows you own both W220s and a BMW 750IL.

It would be great if you had some free time to write a comparison between the full size Mercedes and BMW sedans.

Thanks,

Mike

I would love to read that. I have always found the BMW 7 series attractive, especially the later model E38

I would have to say that I love them both. BMW 750il is the most reliable car Ive ever owned. The Benz is on the Cusp of the Technology upgrades so it really is more convient to drive. But the E38 is the car hands hands down that you can put your wife in and have no worries of her safety or getting to her destination.

The best part about E38, no droopy suspension whoas. But I love them both.

I would love to get an E38. Unfortunately living up here in Canada most have rotted away now and the clean ones are getting more and more pricey.

For me, my ultimate 2 car garage would be a W140 S600 and a E38 750iL. Both black with tan leather, bone stock!

I would definitely be interested in learning about what is available, and the current prices. Ideally I would be looking for a S500 or S600 in black.

If I can get an idea of total costs involved, that would be great. Feel free to send me a message if you're interested. I am in no immediate rush but I would make a move if it were the right car at the right price.

Thanks
Oliver

Absolutely OliverP, I will put a proposal together this week involving your car selections, what is your approximate location? For delivery purposes.
