People have a lot of money, but above that, even a poor guy would try and buy a bmw. they are fashionable people like that, always need to have the best clothes, shoes etc...

There is a massive indian business community in botswana. so a lot of the merc drivers are among them. and their children.

The actual diamond wealth cannot be seen in the populous. Diamond export just keeps the economy turning.

According to official figures, US is less than one third of the Western Europe sales, measured in units.

MB isn't just a luxury car in Europe, you know it is the most common taxi car and lower end models are driven by more or less ordinary people as a daily driver.

US is an important market, no doubt about that.
