Bmw's....easier to sell?

Don't get me wrong,I love Mercedes but I have owned all sorts of Bmw's and Benz's and when it comes time to trade one toy for another it seams as though I have a much easier time selling the Bmw.I always have had the more desireable models in both brands and usually the first person that calls on a Bmw usually buys it regardless of mileage,whereas the Benz calls(when the phone does ring)usually cry about an 89 300ce coupe loaded with goodies w/170k for 3900.00 bucks.I thought the reason they cost so much is because they are supposed to last so long,I mean what the F**k I paid more for my T.V.

In contrast, Bimmer buyers are more spontaneous, i.e. impulsive buy. As a matter of fact, I am shooting a Bimmer for my next vehicle.[] 2001 or onward 325ci/330ci. What is the code name for this? E46?
Yes it is the E46.

A lot of BMW owners are very young. Some people still see MB as a grandpa car company, and BMW is more sport/performance oriented. A lot of people buy them for that reason.
