OP, the topic is incredibly broad. Any specific areas of comparison you'd like to look into?

Well there's a reason both companies are still around. Enough people think Mercedes is better -- and enough other people think BMW is better -- to keep them viable. I've always thought it came down to
MBZ = luxury; BMW = performance.

What a dumb thread topic. You could have at least been a little more specific and learned to spell correctly.

2012+ BMW is becoming more buisness and less hands on Motorsport quality in my honest opinion I know there will be people to argue but let's face the fact that older chassis looked allot like they would out perform any other bran unlike now where the faqing "4 series" looks fragile and relaxed


To conclude my opinion I think M-Benz just might pull a fast on BMW in near future, though I may not sound like I'm not making sense try to comprehend me as best as you guys can
But BMW is in our hearts for ever and no reacements

Give it 3 years. When those Audis are out of warranty and breaking down every other week, we'll see who made the better car.


As for BMW vs Mercedes Benz?

Both have their pros/cons. I absolutely love MB's AMG division. It feels as if every one of their cars has such a fantastic blend of luxury and awesome performance.

Just...look.



However, on the opposite end of the spectrum, you've got:

It's very hard to compete with an Alpine White/Arctic White M3 of any generation.



Don't even get me started on Porsches. There are way too many great German cars to choose from nowadays. Except Audi.

What a dumb question.

You're posting in the bmw forums asking if bmw or Mercedes is better..... What answers did you expect to get? If we all liked Mercedes better we would be driving them...

When a engineer graduates university in Germany, he gets hired by Benz or BMW.

The ones who fail out..well.. get hired by VW.
