    I love how they still include the present M5 and E63 in this 'dream' comparison. As far as Im concerned, the dream comarison is the RS6 sedan against the M5. Oops, brainfart. I didn't mean M5 at all, did I? All 4 sedans drive well enough and look good enough inside and out, that power really does matter. Hopefully the CTS-V will still be alot cheaper then all 3 by the time it makes it across the ocean.

    BMW does great chassis but their recent emphasis on 8000RPM buzz-bomb motors doesn't tickle me. Audi chassis are seldom all that good, their powertrains are hit and miss - some are exceptional, some are lackluster. Mercedes chassis are consistently adequate (seldom more) but they've got really nice powertrains these days.

    IMO, of course.

    Riding the V

    My father in law said-OMG.... due to the low profile tires and high performance this new V will be a VERY hard ride and bumpy as heck.That I will not have a smooth driving experience. Is this the case? I'm looking for this car to be fast, has great handling, and pleasant to drive. As I am a "girl" is this an unreasonable expectation for the new V? Thanks for the feedback- LD.

    o.O

    "As I am a girl"? What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    The new V has Magnetic Ride Control, it will soften while cruising on the highway and stiffen when cornering or encountering extreme changes in grade.

    Will it be as smooth as a Deville? Of course not. ...but it's not going to be a lumberwagon either.

    If you have ever driven BMW's 5 series, I think you will have a reasonable idea of what the car will feel like on the road.

    Add to the MRC that the V2 will have non-RFT tires. Sure, they may be lower profile tires but they'll still ride nicer than the F1s did...

    Dad's suddenly realized Princess would wrap this car around a tree in 48 hours or less, and is now in full backpedal and downselling mode.

    "The more I think about it honey- you don't want that car. It'll ride rough, and isn't very green at all."
