You are in the Audi Q7
What is this discussion about?

You'd get both luxury sedans? Wow! That would be a dramatic move!
Plus, you would be able to compare them side-by-side!
The LS460L will actually be quicker than the 750li, due to its lower weight and higher power output (380>360).
Another (completely off-topic) comment:
The 2009 (or shock 2008) Audi A4 was predicted by Automobile magazine in the May 2006 issue. They featured gorgeous artist's impressions, revolutionary features the A4 will have, and engines:
3.2 litre V6- 265hp
2.0T i4- 210hp
S4- 350hp 4.2 litre FSI V8
However, I believe Audi will be more aggressive than this:
2.0T i4- 220hp (to beat the 325xi)
3.6 litre V6- 290hp (from the Passat)
S4- 360+hp FSI 4.2 litre V8
RS4- 435hp FSI 4.2 litre V8

Well actually to tell you the truth, I am aiming to sell my 530i because of how many BMWs I drove. I am planning on trading in my 530i for the 2007 G35. I will get a G35 keep my 750Li because its an excellent drive trade in my SUV for the Audi Q7, get a LS 600hL instead of the LS 460L. Ill just stick with 4 cars

I need four cars because I have a big family.
My dad will drive the LS600hL when we get it but he drives the 530 right now, my mom drives the SUV right now and shell drive the Q7 my sister currently has a 2007 Camry XLE V6 and shes going to get the 2007 Infiniti G35 and Im driving the BMW 750Li.

Okay, your post that was directly before that was very confusing!
The 530i is an executive midsize sedan (albeit not my favorite), and the G35 is a small near-luxury sedan. I don't understand the step down, even if you have another BMW?
By the way, the G35's interior is not appealing at all- nor the new Lexus ES. Neither seem to have much inspiration or beauty inside and out.
Maybe another midsize saloon (Audi A6, Infiniti M, Mercedes-Benz E) would be a more proper replacement.

Im sorry if it was confusing, let me make it a little bit more simple.
2006 BMW 750 Li
2005 BMW 530i for a 2007 LS 600hL
2007 Toyota Camry for a 2007 Infiniti G35
2005 Toyota Highlander for an Audi Q7

And by the way, I was talking about the 2007 G35 and I dont know if you feel the same way about it. But I thought that both the exterior and the interior was very appealing. And I dont really care much about the size since Im going to have two extra long ultra luxury sedans, especially the 750Li.

Well, I've never actually seen the new G in person, so once you test drive it tell me of the interior quality. The exterior isn't too offensive, it's just not very different- Lexus went in a totally different direction with the new IS. I realize, however, that Infiniti must be cautious to maintain their momentum in the market; Lexus is already an established player in America.
It is really the headlights that turn me off- they're not really integrated into the bodywork. IMO, the interior plastics look like rubber, but there hopefully will be a luxury package with better-looking wood.
It's funny to me... five years into its life, the A4 still seems to have the best interior in its class; in my eyes it's also the best-looking. Audi was smart with the update, the more I see it the more I like it. The rear looks almost Italian.
The 3 is striking, and much better-looking than the 5, but the 7 still has a presence neither can possess. I applaud your decision to get a 750li- BMW really did a nice job with the update.
Also, before you decide on the LS, you simply must look at the A8L (W12 if you'd like). It has timeless beauty, a flawless interior, easy-to-use interface and a wonderful V8 engine (never been in the W12, but I have the same V8 in my S4 Cabriolet).
However, this is a Q7 forum. It's a very, very nice SUV.

I decided that i didnt want to wait that long for the new G even though its really good so I got a 2006 Lexus ES330 yesterday. I got it at a very very good price so thats why i bought it

I see that you are very taken with Audi huh? you are getting one Audi after another. Just wondering if you would like to try another brand instead of Audi. Something like a BMW or Lexus or Mercedes
