RE: Stay with Benz or Go to Bmw. I'm confused!
Well, what amazed you? Handling, engine, street reaction? Toys? My generall assessment of the two brands is that you are more likely to be waved at in the Merc and more likely to be pulled over or cussed at in the BMW.
The equivalent MB is the new manual SLK 350. Personally, in London, I rate the entire SLK range for the hard-top ability - I've had enough damage to steel-topped regular cars on London streets as it is: a rag-top from ANY manufacturer would make me far too nervous to enjoy it.
By the way - I have a slightly privileged parking setup. Ã‚Â£1200 per annum or thereabouts for a space inside the congestion charging zone with 24 hour guard... interested? [:D]
