I vote Lincoln!

Thats a bad picture you posted.

Its all about the driver-leaning center stack, and sweeping IP that flows into the doors!

Exterior styling wins it for me too.

I think BMW had a major redesign that year.

If the Cadillac had less black plastic.

The major redesign, the e39, came in 95 as a 96 model. I'm pretty sure that was for Europe though as I have never seen any e39 earlier than 97 here.

I may be biased, but the BMW interior, even with the horrid 4-spoke wheel, is far and away the best interior of the bunch in my opinion.

I remember that Cadillac wood. Zambrano or something like that? They put it in everything before their current Art and Science thing I believe. I think it's actually legitimately very expensive wood I think from Africa? Anyway I always liked the STS interior and vote the Caddy.

Lincoln, it was different for the times and style wise would still make for a great interior today. However the fit and finish and materials do need work. Do this style dash with Ford's current crop of high quality interior plastics and such and you have an awesome interior, no doubt.

speaking of lincolns, on my way to work yesterday two chicks (driver was hot as the car sounded) pulled up beside me at the light. was listening to the radio and heard a angry exhaust, started looking around for it and was surprised to find it coming from the V8 lincoln hehe... i was lookin everywhere for a mustang gt or an fbody. sounded goooooood.

1. Lincoln (I've always liked how the Mark interior wraps around the driver, even though materials aren't the best)

2. Lexus

3. Cadillac

4. LHS

5. BMW

6. Mercedes

I'm not digging either of the Germans' interiors at all.
