      In terms of performance, BMW is a better choice between the two. It's a driver's car. But if you prefer to be chauffeured, go for Mercedez.

    I drive a Volvo. Sad, I know. But my dream car is a Mercedes. And I'll be grabbing one pretty soon too, no doubt. There're two kinds of cars...Mercedes and Others.

    It seems that more and more BMWs and Mercedes are appearing around here. I'm not sure if they have a great leasing deal or what, but they are becoming so common! I would prefer a Mercedes, they have a MUCH smoother drive than BMWs. Plus, I think they are a lot more beautiful, too.

    My goal is that my next car will be a Mercedes. big_smile I just bought a Hyundai Accent Hatchback last year. So, I hope to get 5-6 years out of that and then purchase a Mercedes once I am gainfully employed and done with college/law school.

    BMW. Benz's driving characteristics are syrupy and boring and their dashboards (usually) irritate me. BMWs at least seem more purposeful to me.

      You know when I spent time in Germany I almost fell out laughing when I saw a BMW pulling a horse trailer! To them its no big deal, they don't see it as luxury!

  20. earnestshub profile image80
    earnestshubposted 14 years ago

    It is a matter of models and what you are looking for. Both have flagship luxury models and hot sports models, so not quite black and white. I have owned several models of Benz, BMW Alfa Romeo and other exotics, the nicest of which was a 7 litre injected hemi Jensen Interceptor SP 111.
    For sheer driving pleasure the Porche 911 is hard to beat!
    I also loved their old V8.

    It really depends on the model and on your driving style.  I havea  2007 335i coupe and it is the most fun to drive of any car I have ever had...but it is not as comfortable as my friends e class....

    If I had to paint with a broad brush...BMW is more of a engineers/mans car...not as comfortable and built more for performace.  Mercedes is more about luxury...feeling like you are driving a lounge chair..

    Timely topic for me.
    I've just bought my second Mercedes. Upgraded from a C230Kompressor to an E320,but actually am paying LESS for the E Class than I did for the C.Go figure. My mechanic says the "Es" are the best mechanically (better than S).
    Before I had a 3-series BMW which I loved also.Great for touring the wine country/CA shoreline roads!

    To those who say they can't afford either -- I say, check it out. Both Mercedes and BMWs are built to last a LOT longer than other cars -- esp. American.
    So you can buy an older model with higher mileage and drive a perfectly beautiful car for less than you might think!
    Sure, if you're wanting a 2008, 2009 or 2010 that's another story...
    Find yourself a nice lease return that's been pampered and you're in business.

    One thing I like a lot about the Mercedes is oil changes at 7K miles. And their electric systems don't peter out the way BMWs do.

    Our other car is a Nissan XTerra -- that's our kayak carrier, go to the mountains camping vehicle. So feel we've got the best of both worlds. Only thing missing is a truck. And a boat. And an airplane (kidding -- the latter 2 are things Hubby wants!)

      The E320 is a nice car without doubt. Did you have any computer problem with the Kompressor?

    i agree with some person here. Mercedes and BMW have their own segment. No doubt they engineered and build their car differently. In my mind BMW cars deliver sporty and elegance to their car. BMW cars' image are perfectly match with young,spirited person who wants enjoyment of driving car in high speed and elegant way. Mercedes cars are build for people who wants to ride a comfort, high class car.
    I can't say which one is objectively better, since i think the question is more personal. But i personally vote for BMW. I wish i can afford one in the future. Both of them have similar prestige but i do love driving a fast car.

    Speaking of cars I had a marriage proposal from a guy who owns three porsches, two mercedes and had his own butler.
    He said if I married him I could have anything I want including my own porsche....
    I said no, as for me there was no love.....
    A couple of years have passed and I still have not ridden in one of these cars.
