    To own yes.
    To be driven?
    Not much fun!
    I like being driven, it's nice to laze in luxury and be smoothly delivered. :teehee: However, one can get too used to a good thing. :rolleyes:

    Although I don't like most of these kinds of cars on environmental grounds, I was brought up being driven around in range rovers and so on and whilst it is very nice to be that comfortable, there's a limit to how much comfort a person can have before it distorts reality and becomes some sort of weird filter to the real world.

    You have to have someone that's driving well though. The woman from the office next door didn't have the smoothest of driving styles, although the car did a lot for her (she had previously driven me home in her own Ford once as well). My boss drives a 2008 Mercedes C-Class and he has an incredibly smooth driving style and it's beautiful to just sit back and let yourself be driven by him. Unfortunately, he usually insists we do something work related while driving between meetings.

    I usually get the bus, so these lovely posh cars are a rarity for me, so I feel like I'm kind of off the hook for that.

    Poshest I've driven is my Fiesta, doesn't sound great but it's brand new and when I got it was worth not much less than 20 grand

    My uncle-in-law when I was younger was ****ing loaded, so I was passenger in a Rolls Royce, Limo and Ferrari F50. Wish my aunt was still with him, he might have gotten me a very nice car for xmas :rofl:

    Been driven in a top spec Jaguar XJ which was literally a few days old at the time! Also been driven in a 15 plate Audi S5, a 2010 S-Class and a 2003 M3 (more fun that 'posh' I guess).

    Owned a 2005 M5, was great fun but certainly not the poshest I've been in. (Probably one of the most powerful, although it was quite rough to drive tbh)
    Poshest I've ever been in was my cousins Aventador (BEEEEEEEEASSSTTTT, Never seen such power in my life, cut my breath every time he accelerated.) and my brother's M4 (Love that car, absolute beast and looks stunning)

    The Alpina B7 is pretty much the closest thing you can get to an M7.

    Posh? Probably my neighbour's Bentley Continental. The effortlessness with which it picks up power when it's accelerating is really awesome.
