Our family has had disastrous experiences with Fords, especially transmission problems. Plus, I don't think they really have a model that can compete with a 335, maybe the new MKZ, but I just don't feel confident spending that kind of money on a Lincoln.
The A-Plan pricing is really hard to ignore. Contemporary Fords (2007+) are light years ahead of the cars of yore from a reliability/quality standpoint. But I agree, you won't have an issue with a BMW at R&D. My main concern would be subjecting a nice BMW to Michigan roads in the winter. Check out the new Fusion. It's looking like a pretty damn nice car.
