if you don't care about resale value but want to have first class in safety) buy an S80
if you want a car tons of people have, but has a great engine and reliability) get the 5 series
if you want a car that will always be a classic, never wear out its looks, won't drive as great as the 5, but has a very quiet and better quality interior. get the Audi.

I like the tone of your reply, very clear & to the point. You seem to have owned or atleast driven enough of the above . Would you like to elaborate on your statement.



Cheers

Brilliant choice, you picked the best of the lot.
It comes loaded to the brim so not much you can opt for only the bluetooth kit or mtech body kit if you like.

Super choice on the car as well as the colour combo! The 530D is one of the fastest sedans in the country, yet so practical. Congratulations.

Excellent choice for the car as well as the colour combination. It will be a very smart looking car. Add the Mtech Kit and it would add the mean look to it. cheers:

Did you get that keychain free? I had to blackmail my dealership that even my NHC came with a free keychain and you guys can't give me one

Can one of you "highline" boys post pics of the nightvision in action.

Yes, Sahil I got the keychain free. Used your trick and told them that after buying such an expensive car, the least they can do is provide me the keychain.

Will post pics of the Nightvision in action on the weekend. However, I would have preferred if they had given Heads-up display or Paddle shifts instead of nightvision. ( It's overhyped IMO ).
