Ride though improved, its still no Merc. And handling though fun is still no E60. Classic dictionary definition of conundrum.
Very well put! Exactly my thoughts, having driven both.
Currently own the E60 and the F10 only makes me work hard to aim for a segment higher upgrade as IMO, the F10 would not be much of an upgrade . Although I might get a few things I wished for in the E60 such as better interiors and comfort but at the loss of BMW's aggressive characteristics and handling, thats too much of a trade-off.
