We are huge fans of the revamped W212 generation Mercedes Benz sedan and the corresponding C207/A207 coupe and convertible versions, having owned more than one example in the past. The facelift was actually one of the most expensive, extensive revamps in the history of the automobile at the time of launch (2013/14) and it transformed the cars, visually and technologically.
We will have a very well equipped, top of the range 2016 AMG Line V6 Convertible available for sale shortly. Take a look at the official promotional film for the car while you're waiting...

The BMW E38 has become a bit of a legend in recent years. It is widely regarded by many enthusiasts as the high point for the automaker’s luxury flagship 7 Series, competing with the Mercedes S-Class and the Jaguar XJ. Many now argue that it is actually one of the best BMW models of all time, peak BMW as it were, and with it's handsome, understated styling and exceptional driving experience, it's not difficult to see why.
The E38 is the third generation of the BMW 7 Series full-size luxury car, produced from 1994 to 2001. It replaced the E32 7 Series and was very much an evolutionary step forward, in typical German fashion at the time. The design is seen as being objectively one of the best ever in the widest sense, not just in terms of BMW. The replacement for the E38, the Chris Bangle styled E65, was bestowed with revolutionary styling, to put it mildly. So smitten were buyers with the E38, when the E65 successor was launched, sales of the E38 actually increased, as did values. While it has it's merits as an individual car, we really didn’t like the brave new style of the E65.
