Love my Lexus Gs350, which is a lot of fun in sport mode. Love my ‘95 e320 cab too but sometimes wish it would love me back more.Never though MB had ‘soul’ though. Well engineered mass produced German carSounds like you'd be a much happier camper with a Toyota/Lexus then if you like yours cars with zero soul.
I have a Honda Accord diesel wagon. Great car, honest car (like MB used to be prior to 2000), but I would never consider it superior to a MB. My mom's Lexus LS is about as pleasant as having a root canal. Not my cup of tea at all.
