    Really? Last time I saw a ML in a city it was getting the horn from about every other vehicle. A 5 seater, 15 MPG vehicle has no place in the city

    Its SUV hate. SUV's in general are pretty useless vehicles. They're intended for US markets, and the US gets the piss taken out of it because of that

    Even if I didn't like BMW's or Merc's do you honestly think a 15MPG 5 seater, huge car is practical or usefull in the city/suburbs

    I drive my dads 02 Honda Civic (not a Type R!) It's annoying though as since i've passed i've put 2 small scrapes on the coloured bumpers.. if it was mine I wouldn't care one bit, and my dad doesnt care at all, but I still feel really guilty :P

    No im saying that an SUV is pointless because 5 seater saloons do the same job and don't waste petrol

    The Mercedes ML was the most unreliable car made in its time(according to topgear). It also looks very dated now, and its nothing but a badge. Same goes for the A class.
    I hate people that drive 4x4s when they live in the middle of a town. Whats the point?

    I drive a 2001 VW Golf 1.8T. Its due for a change, but since my parents pay for it, its up to them. I wanted to take my dads A3 3.2 Quattro since he is getting a the new Merc CL, but he said no since its only 8 months old. Suppose it was worth a shot anyway.

    I don't like the ML much myself but it does have its uses. And if people want to pay extra to have one, why stop them?

    No, I'm poor. I could never afford to buy and run my car without saving every penny I earn.
    My parents are doing well for themselves, and so can afford to give me nice things too.

    Not a fan of Alfa Romeos, I think the BMW 1 is a waste, ditto Merc A series.

    I only really am because my Dad works for them and I get rides in the latest cars. I've been in a 156 GTA and a 5 Series M3....The GTA was nowhere near as luxurious as the M3, it had bucket seats and about 5 inches of legroom in the back but the engine did sound a tiny bit sweeter. For around town i'd say the M3 was better, the GTA's strong point is empty windy roads, not speedbumps or carrying passengers

    GTA is 250bhp FWD, meaning loads of power understeer when cornering aggresively.
    I get loads in the Golf, and its just 200bhp. I wouldnt like to drive a GTA at its limits!
    The M3 handles superbly, which is its main attribute. Nothing in its class can beat it round a track.
