Talking about headlights. Does somebody own a 3/4 series with LED Headlights? Are they a big improvement over the standard bi-xenon adaptive?

All the best.
People on this forum crack me up sometimes.

I am sure that the posting about the lights being LED has now saved 25 posts from occurring from people announcing that they are basing their buying decision solely on headlights and how they are so upset that LED * isn't* offered that they will now be going to buy a Mercedes or Audi or Hyundai or Kia or some other manufacturer that's LIGHT YEARS (pun intended! ) ahead of BMW and offering LED lights.


Oh. By the way. That headlight IS pre historic. It's pre production and it's on a test vehicle. That kinda implies right there that it's not a finished product. Heck.... For all you know, there is still camoflauge over it, and what you are seeing is tacked on over the light to disguise it! LOL. i guess that's just not obvious to all...

You will see just how advanced the 7er actually is.
It certainly shows up the main Achilles heel of the S-Klasse - Weight.

I'm not talking technology but as a total pkg the sclass is much better than the 7 series. it has always been. if i want an executive sedan with feature comforts and power and luxury, im going sclass.

and im an ///M lover but love all cars.

nobody cares about weight when you opt for a tank of a yacht.

If you are in the UK then you will be offered a four cylinder diesel in the 7er.

Totally agree!

It's still hard to imagine that I would buy anything other than the S-Class if I were in that market... I'm hoping for a drastic interior change!

Do you know anything about cars?
yes i do. but i really dont care about technical shit and specs like a bunch of "car" guys or who think they are "car" guys do.

when you are driving a tank you can throw out any bullshit about "lightweight" or "drivers car" because really they are not meant to be nor would you have picked one for it. i would never drive neither the 7 nor the S but if i wanted a luxotank i would take the AMG S for its looks, engine, and all the luxury comfort shit it comes with over a 7.

i like to drive. i don't sit and knit pick about specs...you prob do that a lot don't you?

heres a little tidbit (there's plenty more on my channel):
