Once you start tacking options onto the Cad, BMW, or Audi, they are way more expensive. For similar equipment levels to your Azera ( Heated Leather, moonroof, NAV, etc. ) the ATS, which has the same interior dimensions as the BMW 3 series ( except 2" less rear legroom ) is $42K and the BMW is $47K....and like you say - they have much less room.
For similar bucks, the Buick Lacrosse Premium II looks very competitive and features the HiPer strut suspension that eliminates torque steer in high powered FWD cars like the Azera. Our '06 Azera torque steers badly, get a downshift to 2nd on a crowned road and if I'm not holding on and anticipating the response, it would be easy to end up in the ditch.
Enjoy your new Azera!

Speaking of the '06 Azera. I'm thinking replacing the shocks/struts on my '06 with 54k miles. Any suggestions? Thanks

The HiPer Strut suspension is not simply a strut fix, but a different suspension design, here's a link:
IMO, the Azera front end problems can not be fixed with a strut replacement. I guess if the struts on our Azera went bad - as exhibited by loss of damping, uncontrolled bouncing up and down, porpoising - I would look at a strut replacement with one of the higher end aftermarket products. Till then, we motor on with a front suspension design that has some problems.

2013 Azera with Tech package, negotiated to 32k, no military or student discount. Love the car, but did not buy it and bought new Kia Cadenza instead. Horrible experience. As long time hyundai owner I've had enough! I owned Accent, then Elantra, and then 2007 Azera Limited. When i bought My 2007 Azera was the last time I had normal somewhat pleasant experience. Always recomenended Hyundai and help negotiated for my friends 2 elantras, 3 sonatas, 1 accent. Not anymore. Not sure what happened at all WA dealers, but they become greedy nasty liars trying to pull all tricks on the book.
Trying to sell my 2007 Azera now, what do you think is a good price for 87k miles, but mint condition?

I'm currently evaluating a 2014 Cadenza vs a 2013 Azera. Are you stating that your Cadenza buying experience was horrible, your Azera buying experience was horrible or both were horrible? So far, my Kia sales person has been laid back... perhaps too laid back! The Hyundai people have been as you described, so much so that I'm working on an internet deal with two other dealers 200-250 miles away that appear to be more on the up and up. We shall see.
Also, how do you like the Cadenza? I'm a bit put off that the Cadenza's UVO service does not offer remote start as does the Blue Link service on the Azera. Its odd, one can have dealer installed remote start added on a Kia Rio, Soul or any other lower model but that is not offered or even possible on Kia's new "near luxury" model Cadenze. Strange.

Sorry, I was so upset after dealing with Hyundai dealiships, that I did not make this clear enough. Buying Azera was horrible experience! kia dealers were very freindly. I bought cadenza , luxury package, black on black for 32637 + tax and tabs. It is better car with better handling, better materials used inside, it is better car as overall. And this is coming from a person used to drive lots of Hyundai. I don't really need remote start, but the dealer told me I can get installed one for ~$100. Remote start was never my priority, I will not use it anyway. I.m looking more for handling, look, better materials, etc.

Remote Start for $100, sounds like a deal...I mean steal....I mean lie.
