RE: Benz VS Bimmer
My wife is interested in a 325I. We took it for a cruise and it rides like a lumber wagon. I'm getting too old for that shit.
But you have to admit that while we have progressed to MB's, the American car companies are building some nice cars and the automotve press really isn't giving them a fair shake. All of them have come out with cars that I wouldn't mind owning again and really have given it some thought.
On the patriotism side, we can't make everything overseas so it's in our own best interests to buy it here instead of there. There's a certain leveling effect in economies when they chase the cheapest source and eventually it comes back to haunt them in a very terrible way. The car companies pay a competitive wage and it trickles through the economy much better than the wages for Wal-Mart. More importantly, you cannot continue to import $65B per month more than you export. So I say, buy your MB (like I have) and buy an American car, too.
