General Comments:

Awful dealer and after sales service in Poland. Do not buy the 2.0, it is underpowered for such a big car. On German autobahns have never been able to get it over 200 km/h, whereas manual says 215 km/h is possible.

Love the dashboard and interior design - it really grows on you. Exterior is acquired taste but you get the feeling of being one of a priviliged/intelligent (?) few who have not fallen for the obvious A6, 520i, E class choice.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
