Just completed a 1600 mile treck from Miami to NYC. Had a chance to truly ride and drive this machine. Came away so impressed, that I recommended the car to collegues at the office, two of which ended up getting the car after test driving it. Both were a long time BMW drivers!
Having owned 7 series Bimmers since early 90s, the last thing I was going to do is get an S Benz. In fact, I stayed away from MB showrooms for much of a decade, as MB cars did nothing for my driving senses. Then I test drove associate's brand new S5504Matic with the intent of criticising the big brute as compared to my 06 BMW 750LI. Truth be told, I was impressed immediately. The seats! What comfort! Engine/Transmission worked flawlessly and seemlessly. Supple ride and AWD all season versatility and a rock-solid feel of a bank vault?! I had to look into the car more seriously. A week later, I was grinning from ear to ear while whispering on cell phone while the Benz ate up miles of interstates at very respectable velocities (read: some stretches of I95 had traffic flowing at over 80mph, with troopers pacing!) The car was so quiet at speed (real, serious speed) I was beginning to feel that my mighty 06 BMW 750LI badly needed a revamp. as it was much outclassed this time. The 7speed transmission mated to the massive 382hp 5.5L V8 kept the engine so relaxed, it was barely turning at 2200 RPM at triple digits! I could not believe my eyes, peeled to the Night Assist Display and the speed bar graph below it.
In short, an awesome automobile. One of the best driving sedans in the world, bar none. MB seems to have gotten it's MOJO back, with S550 anyway.
