Hi friends

 

As above.  I'm considering a BMW 740i 3-litre or a Porsche Panamera 3-litre.  Any comments?  I also welcome any other suggestions. Thank you in advance.

I will take Panamera, although ugly but the prestige, quality and drive I feel is more superior than BMW

For the kinds of cars that I have in mind, I won't be able to buy brand new with SGD 300,000.  Brand new 740i (latest model) is about SGD 430,000 while brand mew Panamera base model is about SGD 500,000, I think.

I think that the 7 will drive better and more practical as it can take 5easily. The porky is a strict 4seated. The porky is not as common as the 7 on road the. So.... really depends.

I'm sorry I didn't specify earlier.  I'm looking for a 4-door car.  4-seater or 5-seater is not so important.  Suitable for business use and yet not too mature.

Well.7 series is already too mature. So your choice is cleared.

For 300k i will go for  new base Macan over  preowned  Panamera. 5 yrs free maintenance and servicing. But between panamera and 740i, definitely panamera.
