United BMW brought a black 750 to 4ngiefest, and sitting in it at least...not bad. The front grills drew widespread hate, soul-less side panels and front lower grill. Neither are for me.

worst part is the change of the transmission shifter from the steering wheel on the new 7. IMO and those grills are odd shaped.

the S class is beautiful both the new one or the pre 04 ones. It is one of the most comfortable cars money can buy, quality is up there as well. The new 7 series is just ugly like seriously it looks like the retarded bigger brother of the old 7 series.

I agree, but the 7 probably has a great drive. The S does also, dont get me wrong Ive got almost 40k on mine and it is still as solid as day 1.

S for me too. The whole front end on the 7 just looks weird. The S also looks better in person and in pics.

If you're bold then you'll pick the 7-series, but too bad a bunch of people on this forums act like they're in their 80's.

old dudes = S class
younger-old dudes = 7 series


(not a lot of the younger folk can afford/would want to buy a big luxury saloon like these... but that's my general feeling for both models)

I might get flamed for this but I'd take the A8w12 over both of these cars any day
But between the 7 and the S you would see me in a white s550.

I like the exterior of S-Class better than the '09 750, but I like the '08 (..current) 750 better than any S-Class. I wouldn't purchase either car though.

My Ride: BMW
i think both cars are one of the worst styled for each company

the mercedes...... ya, its nice, but WTF is with those wheel arches, i absoultely hate them. they look tacky, aftermarket, and completely ruin the flow of the car. and not to mention, they basically made it a baby maybach

the bimmer......... meh, the rear lights do remind me of a cheap styling tactic that hyundai or kia would do just to make it "abstract" and different.... the front is ok, but goddamn those grilles are at a 10, we need them at about a 6.... mmk? thanksssssss

as far as the interior

7 > S (regardless of the tach)

i would spend my money elsewhere if i had 90k to drop on a car
