At home on the grange

Asked by Murray Abblitt

I WANT to buy a luxury long-wheelbase V8. Do I go for the new 317kW HSV Grange, a 2005 used BMW 740IL, or the Mercedes equivalent. I don't want to spend more than $100,000.

THE HSV and the BMW are quite different cars, which makes it hard to compare them realistically. The BMW has lots of badge cred and is a good car in all respects. The HSV has limited badge appeal and isn't as good a car. That said, the HSV will cost less, be less expensive to service and Holden parts are far less expensive than BMW parts.
