    The lines look very much like the Jag XF.

    What's not to like? It'll be big and comfortable and loaded with goodies...and be reliable.

    Saw that and thought, that's actually quite good looking, can't be anything German so googled new BMW 7 series Korea and indeed, the new 7 series is indeed a lot uglier, and almost certainly a lot less reliable too.

    Please Kia/Hyundai/whoever the manufacturer is, make one with comfy suspension and wallowy handling, an underpowered, simple, relatively but not stupidly economical diesel and small wheels/minimal kit and i'll have it for £2k in 5 years time to cruise around in on my road trips if/when the W124 dies!

    The used prices will drop like stones as the beemer purists won't touch it. It does look nice though.
