    Oh if you only knew I have very strong opinions about stuff and that makes me very passionate so I end up researching all types of crap. My mind craves it.
    Perhaps research Mercedes S class and galvanised steel.

    I know because I grew up with toy cars instead of barbies and by 4 I could tell what model a car was only looking at its headlamp. This passion stuck with me until now. I had plenty of experience with german, english and japanese cars and I find that german cars lack personality and japanese cars have technology just as good if not better. I just love english cars. Old school stuff and quite simplistic but very effective nonetheless. They don't try to impress but do it because they are a statement, a living treasure by themselves. German cars are the opposite: constantly trying so hard to seem rich and impressive but in my opinion they fail miserabily.
    Take Aston Martin vs Porsche and Jaguar vs Mercedes. It's not even a competition in my opinion. But don't judge - everyone has their own taste.

    One exception does not save their rep in my eyes-not that it even is an exception. 95% of all rusty cars I've seen were Mecedes. The others? So old I didn't even bother to remember what they were.
    All that shiny fairy made material talk has left me cold. It's not working. Not for Mercedes. I've seen 5 year old Mercedes cars with that steel on them and they were rusty - really bad. Again, it's only with Mercedes. It baffles me really no other german car has this problem and they are all owned by VW.

    Depends on which tribe of gangsta drug dealers and rap musicians you wanna associate with. Innit.

    Alongside Audi's, my personal view is that all three are far too common and every sales rep / hairdresser has to have one. They smack of ostentatious consumerism and shallow image pursuit.

    No class at all.

    I don't know why anyone would buy one other than because it's the cheapest bmw they can get into. (In regards to relatively new cars).

    Except the 1M.

    If you could choose any car model from either one,which would you go for?

    I want to go back to driving a BMW,so smooth.
    I think it depends, like BMW is a 'sportier' car than benz. I would, any day, go for a Mercedes S class. But X5 over by benz Suv.

    Are you a car enthusiast??

    In fantasy land: mercedes 600 grosser, so i can pretend I'm the dictator of a 3rd world nation or banana republic with it's own missile program.

    In reality: BMW M3 coupe E92, I think it looks better than the new M4 and it's naturally aspirated plus it's devalued allot over the RRP so one in good nick would cost half the cost of new M4. A lot of mercedes seem compromised unrefined engines or indecisive gearboxes plus they seem a bit boring executive type cars.
