Neither are better than the other, as they are different types of cars. Sure, they're both high end German luxury cars, but BMW is more performance oriented, and M-B is more luxury oriented. I'm more partial to say M-B is better, but that's because I've always been more fond of them, as I've found most BMW's small, cold and sterile in comparison. I'm a luxury car man at heart, and the Mercs have always been more luxurious, well up until the last few years, when the Bimmers have had as many or more toys and gadgets than the Mercs.
BMW started as a company that would build staid, artless small cars that were a joy to drive, but were dull to look at and sit in. It was just recently that they started building cars that were fun to drive, look at and ride in. Mercedes has always built cars for the driver and passengers, while always making them easy on the eyes.
That's why I like M-B more.
