I have owned a E46 BMW and we are currently waiting for the new 435i xDrive M-Sport to arrive.

When we decided to get my wife an all wheel drive vehicle we drove every conceivable option there was. This included the Mercedes C and E class coupes.

This is based on the 4-series comparisons of course.

Our feel of the differences between the BMW and Mercedes come down to design, fit and finish, power and handling.

If you are looking for a "cruiser" with a, in my opinion, dying brand culture, soft suspension, mismatched styling and sub-par power, then chose the Mercedes.

If however, you are under the age of 60 and want to actually enjoy the driving experience...get the BMW.

Hands down the BMW is a drivers car and the Mercedes is a geriatric car headed to the golf course for its morning scotch on the rocks.

But, it's all about personal preference. Buy what you like and remember that a car is worth whatever you want to pay for it. It is, after all, YOUR car.

I've always viewed the Mercedes vs BMW debate like this.

Mercedes is plush, BMW is performance.

and performance means more than big engines (im looking at you AMG)
