    The wraparounds are cool, but you should just go for some classic Aviators.

    The S90 should be selling better than it does.

    Possibly but it drives a little soft for my liking. There's a lot of people that would appreciate its aloof ride and you can go ridiculously fast even in the soft set up though.

    I couldn't even remember who owned them until it was pointed out. Irrespective of ownership, the interior is well detailed and tasteful.

    I have heard that it drives soft as well. I think we are seeing and will see more mfgs move towards comfort though. Lincoln is one and Volvo as well, with the exception of future Polestar versions of the models or the specific "R" trim. There are plenty of "go-fast" cars available in and around this pricepoint even though the majority of these cars are destined to be driven by people well past the typical race car driver age. A smart move. I am sure this car moves swiftly enough and the "luxury" part of "luxury-sport" shouldn't just mean more electronic gizmos, it should mean controlled comfort which means a quiet, smooth, forgiving and responsive ride without beating you up. Perfect for many consumers, especially the aging boomers who have the cash to buy them.

    Too bad Brits have an unfortunate habit of mumbling.

    My Ray Ban Predators would have been an improvement over those.

    Very well stated about the "dangers" of auto pilot driving.

    It does ride a little soft....but IMO it's head and shoulders better than the Buick LaCrosse or Lincoln Continental.

    Funny, we have a thing about Americans being too loud.

    By the way, Australia is further from Britain than you are. That's how British I am.
