Since the previous topic board still says that the 508 is 'to be launched', I thought I'd start this new one up to better reflect a discussion tread for owners, potential owners, and everybody else interested in this new flagship lion.

Now, if only something would quickly buy my 407 so I can upgrade *hint hint*!

just wondering how many forumers here already booked the 508?

I'm one of them, booked during the launch, and SA mentioned delivery will be Dec or Jan. Went to other showrooms, some said end of Nov.

Just curious to know what are your delivery timelines.

Saw the 508 ... really love it ... however there is a lot of stuff being control electronically ... like the smart beam, door lock, etc ... will it be expensive to change all this electronic thingy ...

well..all premium European cars are full of electronic...without these stuff one might say "no this , no that, where got value for money!?" My take is, find a good electronic engineer who knows the Lion inside out, you would have less headache in a long run.

Based on my previous experience, best to take the longer delivery estimates as actual rather than those places where they promise you earlier delivery. After all, it goes through the same system regardless where you buy it from.

Even then, do add a month or 2 to the estimates so as to manage your own expectations!

I wish I can say that I am one of them who booked. But I'm still happy pugging along in my 407. Loved the 508 especially in the flesh. Lots of electronic gear but that's the deal with modern cars. without which, I think our lives are a little less interesting, no?

just to share this comprehensive review of the 508, too bad its in a language that we don't understand. but it shows alot of the 508 features, such as the directional lights etc..
