It's a serious question, I'm not trying to cause any huge debates. I just want to know what you experts consider valid reasons to pick a Mercedes over a BMW.<br> <br> I'm considering the C320 for my wife, and I'd wind up driving it a lot too, as she doesn't want a full size car like the E class. Now, I love the look of Mercedes but it bugs the crap out of me that they are owned by Daimler Chrysler. I used to be a valet and probably 80% of the cars we had problems with were Chrysler, and that was a lot of 'new' one's.<br> <br> Anyway, just trying to get some opinions. For example, I chose a Yukon over a Expedition because I thought the Ex had very light and sloppy steering, it didn't feel like you were in full control of the truck. Also, 90% of the throttle is within the first 10% of throttle play on the gas pedal.<br> <br> Also, does anyone know if the C320's are produced in the same factory as Chryslers? I think that would make up my mind for me.
