I have both a MB and a Lexus. Seriously, the Lexus is much more comfortable. I have the Lexus first and for a while I didn't realize how bumpy or how many pot holes on California's highway. I can also talk on the phone because it is so quiet inside. I got my MB later and now I need to drive around those bad spots. I would have to call people back because I can't hear them while I drive.
But I still like my MB. It looks good and is fun to drive.
If you look at the early Lexus sedans it looks like the simply copied the earlier E class benz. With a business plan of copying the best is has to help. Until they tried the hardtop roadster SC430 which looks like a cross between a SL/SLK/Hyundai S-coupe.

Expensive, well made but with no style.

A typical japanese car.

What type of MB do you have? I have almost NO sound in my car, I can use hands free and talk on teh phone most people don't even know that I am in the car.
