Mercedes is for old people. Their steering is too light, suspension too soft, and they don't make manuals (the only new Mercedes available with a stick is the base model SLK, no thanks). Their cars just don't feel sporty. The AMG division? Those cars look nice and sound amazing, but you still can't get one with a manual. Not to mention, the bigger AMG models are just big brutes that are fast in a straight line but can't go around corners properly. I like the C63 AMG, but the fact that you can't get one with a stick shift eliminates me as a potential buyer.

<3 Audi and BMW

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.



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

And for the record I think most AMGs look badass.

Even the most expensive mercedes in my opinion just doesn't do it for me compared to basically anything bmw makes. I just don't like the style of 95% of Mercedes. A few cars I liked but bmw>mercedes every time if I'm paying for it.

Does the OP have a drivers license? Or is he just referring to a video game?


Threads like these should just get nuked out of existence.

Both have pros/cons

Audi just feels cheap inside. Might look nice but its not built to last out of warranty. Bmw/merc will last longer and are built with better materials/more solid.


But class for class? 12+

3 series > c class. Better power and better equipped than the c.

5 series =/= e class. Both are great cars. 5 series is a tiny bit better. The new 5 is perfect.

6 series < cl. The cl doesnt get any more baller especially the cl65.

Gran coupe > cls. The gran coupe is absolutely beautiful inside out, very fast. Cls is meh. But still nice.

As for suv's merc does it better except the x5.

I think stereotypes make the benz less appealing to me.

I think Audi would be a closer competitor, BMW and MB don't have much in common.

AMG and M cars have more in common than anything from Audi.

What am I missing?

M =/= BMW
AMG =/= Mercedes
Besides, the RS class of Audi is more than a match for the (current) BMW Ms.
