My Ride: E46 2000 328i
I am not big on the drive of the Mercedes so that knocks it out of consideration for me. Just not a performance car, although I am not talking extreme performance. As for cost, I run maybe $500 to $1000 a year in BMW maintenance/repair--mostly because I do the work. This cost may, or may not include the cost of tires depending on the year. So cost of ownership is not a big consideration compared to what you have and the drive. Got to agree that that BMW cost is probably 2 times cost of other non BMW cars I have owned.
