What am I missing?
I think their philosophy about handling over brute power. Just look at the way they make their engines, MB sticks a 6.2 liter V8 in a C class while Audi and BMW are going for smaller displacement, more efficient engines with forced induction. Also on the technological side, do AMGs still use that crappy 5 speed auto? While Audi and BMW use 7 speed Double Clutch Transmissions.

In Germany MB isn't even seen as the main competitor to BMW. MB is like in a different league, attracting way different customers than Audi and BMW.
