The Mercedes-Benz S500 intended to replace the S430 some time ago, altough you can still buy the S430 for some reason. Anyway Jaguar XJ8 4.2 Sovereign for me.

If had unlimited money I would probably grab the Merc. But if I were a regularr person looking for a car in that catagory I would take the Lexus. I'm pretty positive it's better on fuel and doesn't cost a fortune to maintain.

LS430, although if you wanted a Asian looking car you could go for either with Merc these days. The Merc has a stupid voice recignition system (Anyone who has seen Top Gear when J.C Reviews one will understand), The LS430 is simply flawless, incredibly reliable, and if I wanted, the ol' Lexus V8 can be tuned very well.
