The STS offers RWD and strong American Style. It is not a copy cat.<p>I love it.

BMW 5 series because it has a amazing design and the 545i's power is enough for me.

This is a good poll because there are 6 votes and all divided into 6 different cars <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyways, I voted for the A6 because I am really biased <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/icon11.gif" BORDER="0">

Why is a 5-classe in a mid-size luxury sedan poll? There is nothing luxurious about it.<p>

BMW _is_ luxury. I'm choosing it for the same reasons as BMW_rulzz.

Had it been 2003, I would have picked the 5 series with my eyes closed. Today I would have to say either the new GS or the New M45. Most likely the new GS.

It was among other pictures of superbowl commericals. On the pic was that same church in The Graduate commercial. There was a guy standing in front of the church reading a messege on some sort of wall and it said "lincoln.com" on the bottom of the pic. I can't find it anymore though. No offense against a church or anything here, it's just there are so many churches and other religious buildings and Lincoln had to pick the same one that Audi picked for "The Graduate" commerical. It's just just uncreative to copy something like that.<br>I don't know why Audi doesn't show the Graduate ad here in America where the classic movie is probably way more famous than in Europe. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>The other commercial is on audiusa -at the bottom of the A6 ad, it says "A6 TV Commmercial".<p><BR><BR>

I voted for the Infiniti M, although it's not the Infiniti version that I really like.<p><br>What I like is Nissan's version of the vehicle, the Fuga.<p>Even though there isn't a 4.5 V8 which currently available for this model, I still like the fact that there are more interior choices for the JDM model.<p><br><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1014/article64543_1.images/74067.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Piano symphony interior scheme is really prestigeous combined with sporty illumination gauges.<p><br>The Nissan logo blends really well with this vehicle and I'm really impressed with it.<p><br>A car like this should really make it to the Asia-Pacific market as a Nissan.

Nissan have moved so upscale with their insides, even the rock solid Patrol has a great looking interior. <p>I really do love the 5's inside, and out, but the GS is better quality, and although its a Toyota (dare i say it) it really is stunning. Words cant describe it...

frankly if the E39 5er was on the list I would still pick it over any of these, but instead I will go with the STS...
