Just one thing you forgot to mention: The Lexus LS (and BMW 750iL for that matter) are EVERY bit as complex and have the same amount of gadgetry. Yet, their reliability (fact wise or public perception wise) seems to be WAY higher - at least for the Lexus.
Why is that?
If you go by Consumer Reports, They always BASH merc s class, While they recommend the bmw 7, pretty pathitic on mercedes!
