I'm surprised motortrend rank them the e60 535i so high! Motortrend don't usually like bmw's.

Luxury Comparison test.

dont know why they are comparing the old 5 series. The f10 is out. GT's already in dealerships and regular sedans are already in the hands of magazines

That's what makes it so awesome. The old one is still considered one of the best, now imagine when the new one comes out. it's over.

Motortrend has a history of BMW love, I don't get what you mean?

The last couple of comparisons with motortrend recalling from the top of my head, they ranked the new 7er' last in the comparison test against audi a7 and the new mercedes s class. Then they ranked the 550i 3rd out of 4 places.

why? because its not fashion trends, its cars...so it usually takes months before an article in a magazine can be published...
