I need some help with my comparison...

Hi, I'm in the market for a new car and I'm deciding mostly between a
c230 and a bmw 328i. Right now I'm leaning towards BMW because I don't
have any kids to cart around and the Mercedes just feels so, well,
sedan-like. Anyone here have any thoughts on which one is the right
one for me? Also, the Infiniti g35 is still in the running but
barely. Which car is the best? Here's a link to the exact cars..
what would you choose?

Why the LAST generations?

In the pictures, although I'm not sure that's what you're looking for, the Mercedes and Infiniti are the last generations. If that's what you're comparing that yes the BMW. I drove the Infiniti and I wasn't particularly inspired, plus the sedan looks gross compared to the Coupe. I HATE the way the new 3 series SEDANS look, the 335 on the other hand looks awesome. SO.. If you want a SEDAN and you want automatic, then get the NEW C class because I also heard the 230 engines suck. ..I'm just not sure what you want exactly, if you want last generation, get the BMW, if you're getting the new gen get the new C class.

Do you want to buy brand new? I'm not sure if you can still buy a new 2007 C230 (W203). Why buy a 2007 when the 2009s are coming (W204)
