I can't speak for MB (yet, as I've just purchased my first C63), but my wife and I are in the throws of trading in our 2011 S4 for an ML350. We've owned a BMW, too. All great cars and each had their own attributes. Ideally, you could have one of each. We loved the S4 but with our 18 month old we felt that an SUV was better and preferred the ML over the Q7. I just traded in my 2011 Corvette GS for the C63 and now have a carseat in the back. I am truly impressed with MB! Did you have any specific questions about Audi/BMW?

Which MB do you want to compare with which BMW/Audi as I work with all three, oh and Porsche.

The newer 3 series engines used around town coke up very fast and to keep them decoked is expensive and the car will spend a lot of time in the workshop.

The A4 is known for it's CV transmission problems and thus can prove expensive.

I would look for a good C Class, an easy car to drive for a young lady and only general maintenance costs.
