Of course. Everything has its purpose.

Would I buy another Mercedes?

A new Merc? Probably not. But I do love the w220 S55 AMG.

Yes, but an 08 or higher. From 00' to 07' there were way too many electrical issues on pretty much everything

Based on my personal experiences with Mercedes, I agree 100%. The 2008 C-class is way ahead of previous Benz's in reliability, hopefully other new models like the new E will be the same or better.

The WRX are great AWD performance cars, they're common where I live with snow in the winter month (along with the Audi Quattros)

But aren't Subaru known to have a short engine life?

I've owned several BMWs, 3 & 5 series, and now on my second Merc.

For me I woudnt mind another Merc but it would have to be a 4 Matic or a Audi A6/A8 Quattro

I've driven many other type of coupes and sedans domestic, import, and euro and IMHO I think German engineering is superior.

Some imports and very good, don't get me wrong, but there isn't the same prestige or heritage that goes with them. Besides, I see too many wannabe racer gangsta rapper kids that own them slammed down boomin' with 22s

Past Euros: 91 MBZ 300TE, 91 Jaguar XJS V12 Coupe, 94 Alfa Romeo 164 LS, 80 BMW 320i, 85 BMW 528e, 86 BMW 325e, 88 BMW 325e, 88 BMW 325i Cab, 89 BMW 325ix, 91 325i Cabrio, 93 BMW 740i, 94 BMW 740iL, 95 BMW 525i, 78 Fiat Spyder 124, 98 Land Rover D1 LSE, 93 MBZ 190E 2.6, 96 MBZ C280 Sport, 93 MBZ 400E, 90 MBZ 300ce, 92 MBZ 500SL, 71 MGB-GT, 91 VW Corrado G60

meh ... I would buy a BMW or even a Subaru before another MB. If I have a choice between my S500 and my WRX, I take the WRX.
Subaru? what an ugly car and the bmw's theyre even uglier with that wood chuck face, wtf were they thinking in that front end??

I love the benzes, grew up in a family with them and as far as i'm concerned its the only daily driver i ever want, of course theres other cars i would love to have for special occasions like an Aston Martin but for every day excursions, only an MBZ for me.

My next its a 2007 CL550 when they break the 50k price.

My personal rule of thumb is if you are going to buy an MB make sure you buy the top of the line one. For example don't get the C300 get the C63. I am performance oriented enthusiast so it makes sense to buy the best model for track days and what not.
