    Default BENZ OR BMW

    Well I have a discussion for you guys, so grab a chair and gather around.... These companies have amazing machines which have competed for sales and honor year after year.

    I personally have owned both, never complained......What do you guys think?

    P.S: Choose either, cause i was unable to.

    @ Salarzae:

    New Sti got a 2.5L engine, but the older ones were same as Evo had (2.0)...! Even if CC vary, both are turbocharged...!

    Anyway, I'll still consider it
    "crazy"
    to compare a turbo engine with a non-turbo...!

    BMW all the way, but only if you like to drive. Merc has MUCH better styling though, the 6- and 7-series both look horrible.

    i think this discussion should be limited to only positive replies FOR each brand and only open to those who know something about both brands.

    you forgot to mention that MB's are "engineered like no other car" as their old slogan goes.

    Also they (MB) have always been at the forefront of safety and technology since the 60's

    no doubt the american benzes (ML) are at the bottom of the survey, and for sure BMW's have improved alot since the 90's and MB has slipped since then but that is all about to change....

    I shoudl also point out that the america BMWs were pretty dismal as well (Z3)

    @ storm,.,.FAIR POINT,...... BUT Z3,... AGAINST,.. ML,.. V CLASS,. THE HORRIBLE A CLASS, AND THE POORLY EQUIPPED,UNDER POWERED, CRAMPED, C CLASS, WITH NOT A GREAT RIDE ?????
    .... P.S.. I OWN NEITHER OF THE CARS,. NEVER HAD A MERC, HAVE DRIVEN A COUPLE, AND HAD A 525i LONG TIME AGO!!!!! (about 12 years ago!),. so aint really biased towards either of them, (as a owner would be),. but t do read a lot of car mags, and get info off the net, and bmw are always classed as "CLASS LEADERS" of the competive executive class category....... personally i prefer the AUDI's above merc and bmw's,.......................................... theyre more individual, and have the perfect balance between sportyness & prestige,......................................... ....................ps, storm,......... the clouds are lifting, and its a clear day,........ ; )

    well at least we can agree on one thing (audi) if nothing else. I agree that BM's tend to win over MB's but that also has alot to do with the image MB's have.

    I enjoyed this discourse since you stated your points clearly and backed them by facts. (Y)

    honestly speaking thought if you HAD to choose a midrange mid priced car (say a 530d or E320CDI) both filly loaded which one would you go for?

    (and please dont say A6 FSI,... LOL!!)

    i already had this dilemma, ended up going for the E320. No doubt the BMW 5 series is a sweet car, but for some reason i'm stuck on mercs.

    BTW in my eyes i see the two brands as the following.

    BMW=Young and sporty/ cutting edge design
    MB=Distiguished/old/frumpy

    Bottom line is that generally i've found benz owners to be more friendly people, BMW owners tend to have a chip on their shoulder (have seen this in PK, UK & CH).

    Plus it's more entertaining to see a merc powersliding....
