​+Ike N It is true at all, nerd. Mercedes did bring some inventions into luxury vehicles, that we can see nowdays. I didn't say, that they invented the car... oh wait, THEY DID. But what I said made the fucking point, because Mercedes did invented parktronic, and then everybody made their own. Mercedes did bring the double-paned soundproofed glass for more comfortable experience. What are you, fucking moralfag? They did used a lot of new things, that weren't used on cars before, I didn't say, that they invented EVERY FUCKING THING. And we gotta be thankful to Tucker 48 too, as it was THE car, that used a ton of new features, that we can use today. And yes, Mercedes is better... FOR ME. That's how opinions fucking work, and I didn't asked for yours.

+Junus # And who gives a damn? The E32 introduced Park Distance Control to "the world"** in March 1992 and the E38 to North America in November 1994. MB copied this in 1995 with Parktronic. **Toyota pioneered rear-facing Back Sonar in 1982 similar to PDC, but discontinued in 1988 before Lexus launch. Valeo and BMW built on that.

+Claucius Fello Do some fucking research and realize BMW USA operates differently from other regional BMW Distributors around the world. BMW USA introduced a facelifted aka LCI E38 in Fall 1998 as a 1999 model, but introduced a refresh for the 2000.5 model year, designated as MY 2001 and released in April 2000 with the same 4:3 screen made optional in 1996 on 1997 MY E38s. In September/Oct 2000, the official 2001 model year began and the new 16:9 screen was introduced on both the E38 and new E39 5 LCI for MY 2001. Behind the scenes by October 2000, the last E65 PPP (final evaluation prototype) cars were being handbuilt for endstage testing and BMW had just finished designing the E60 months earlier. Lastly, figure out that BMW Individual wasn't really available in the US until the mid-2000s, only Highline and lightly armored Protection models were available. Don't come on a video, assuming your market is identical to another, which is heavily federalized for competitive reasons.

Because of fuel price and taxation of old, large engined cars makes beautiful machines like this practically worthless here in Europe.

They run,you know?, you´re a moat of ????????????, regards , i was forgetting you can own a equalizer without buyin´ a 7 series bmw, oh ,it´s the cup holders isn´t it.

Have you heard of something called Mercedes 600?!?! This BMW is total china man garbage compared to the 600, they are dirt cheap and worth almost nothing and breaks because BMW stands for bring more wrenches. The short wheel base model in good condition cost over $100,000 and long wheel base 6 window limousine costs over way $500,000. There is no such thing as a proper luxury car after 1980, because in those days cars like these were for the richest, today everybody in 1st world countries can afford a Mercerdes! Luxury aint what it used to be!

I have both the 01 E38 740il and the last year for the E46, and 06 convertible. The E38 is so high maintenance, I rarely take it out except to stretch her legs. Cars like to be run, but in order to own an E38, you either need to be stackin cash in your garage, or know how to wrench on BMW's. Where do you start with the list of stuff that craps the bed? Valley pan "gasket"? OSV? Cooling system? Cup holders? lol
