Rating:

Brisk or rapid performance, depending on model. Handles well. Looks improve with familiarity.

The iDrive control system takes a lot of learning. Ride on big wheels with low profile tyres is un-limo-like.

What's the best big engined car for £3000?

I have a small budget of about £3000 and I see I can afford old Chrslyer 300C, old Audi A8 or A6, old BMW 7 Series and a big Lexus. I like big engined cars, so which do you think ages better and will possibly cost less in the long run? In summary, best stupid car for £3000.
Honestly? They could all cost a fortune to keep on the road. An old Lexus is probably your best option but even then you'll need deep pockets for maintenance and fuel costs.
