Ditto here on all accounts. I, being a bordering on insanity brand loyal Audi
fanatic, also have to admit: a 740i indeed looks classier. Especially in white.
Now, under no circumstances will I by a Bimmer, mind you. Partially because
Audi makes better cars, partially because I don't appreciate the Narcissic
character of WMB brand.
But still, if I, a poor Audi *fanatic* like the 740i looks better, what can one
expect from the well heeled crowd, which does not know/care about the superb
egeneering behind every Audi, but does know that every Bimmer comes with tons
of *Status* regalia for about the same price.
