Just out of curiosity, I was wondering that the other night. Because a couple weeks ago, I purchased a 91' 300E, and I absolutely love it. Its my new baby. But, I know that when I was having trouble finding a Benz I could actually afford (i'm 16), I generalized, and said, okay, maybe I can just take any german automobile.. I looked at BMW's, and they just didnt seem to catch my eye as much as mercedes did. So anyway, is MB a higher end vehicle than a BMW? Or are they at about the same level. I read the thread below about buying a MB over a BMW, and same applies here - I in no way want to cause an arguement, i'm just curious.
