Hi! I'm new here.... but this topic is the reason I registered to this site. Mercedes is, in my opinion, the best car brand in the world and I can't even compare it with BMW [:0] i just want you to express your opinion about this. [:D][:D]

I agree that mercedes is one of the best and most recognizable cars on the road, but with the recent press that has been going around about the quality of the vechicles, my opinion about the brand is starting the shift a bit. I currently own a 2001 E320 and the quality of this car compared to my 1984 300SD is considerably lower. My 300SD had virtually no mechanical or cosmetic issues until the car reached about six years. With my E320, I feel as if there is always something wrong with it. If I was in the market for a new car right now, I might think twice about getting another Benz and possibly consider a BMW.

I own a '93 600SEL and I am proud to say that this car works better than any BMW on the road. I drove a 2004 C320 recently and a Bmw 328i. C Class is much better. I think we should do something about the thing that BMW overtook MB ! [xx(][xx(][}:)]

What year was the BMW 328i?

Comparing an old BMW to a recent MB is hardly a fair comparison. Also, a BMW 330 is the counterpart to a 320 engine.

As far as BMW taking over from MB. Unfortunately, MB is the author of its own problems with its reduced quality. BMW is merely the beneficiary of the MB gaffe.

Owning both, I have to say that each have there positives and negitives.

The BMW has crisper handling over the MB, but the MB has a more comfortable ride.

I did add a Tornado Fuel Saver in the BMW and I cannot beleive the pick-up the car has now. With that said, the BMW is quicker off the line, but after a second or two, the MB will over take it.

I would rather take the MB on a road trip over the BMW. On the highway the MB screams, and it is a solid ride when you are cruising at 85+mph. On the other hand, if you am going up to the mountains, you'll have a lot of fum in the Beemer.

The seats in the MB are firmer, my wife like the BMW seats because they have more padding.

The MB has a heavier feel to it, while the BMW has a lighter feel. If anyone has ever compared a Camaro with a Mustang you'll know what I mean.

After washing and waxing both, the MB has better a finish and luster than the BMW.

Both are equally dependable. And cost about the same to maintain them.

The sound system is far superior in the MB.

Overall, I think the MB is a better car. The BMW comes close and I would rather it over a Japanese car, but the MB is still king.

its not fair to compare two perfekt products.....MB is designed to fly down the autobahn at 200+k's, and BMW is designed to handle the curves of the alps at full speed, with lots of braking, accelerations, and hard cornering. they are both excellent, and i will take them BOTH!!

I believe that's a 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II in MTI's post. That is by far one of the best looking Mercedes Benz ever made.

Mercedes-Benz are much better than any BMW, hands down. Just take a look at the 2005 S600 and compare it with BMW's best.

Mercedes and BMW are both good cars but if you want luxury and comfort you take the benz whereas sport is where BMW works best. I personally prefer the benz because they look better in and out, the bimmers lately look horible and their interior material of are just dissapointing.

Ever thought of Audi's? I've been looking at the 2006 A6 lately and they're quite nice, the choice of material used inside is very nice, and in some areas its better than my E320.

I noticed that Audi's have really improved with their horsepower output lately. That is my biggest beef with Audi is their being underpowered.
