Mercedes has better sport performance(get the V12 engine, I think its 493 horse, trumps the 745 series in terms of power) and luxury PERIOD, that is if youre willing to spend the bucks lol

Geez, youre not reading the numbers right.

also, who cares about the s420 or the 745i, theyre both pathetic compared to these.

The s600 has more power, is lighter(the s600 sedan is lighter to the tune of 500 plus pounds, and we havent even gotten the coupe, the 7 series is all SEDANS)

With the engine that bmw has they shouldve gotten way more power, the benz makes all that power with a 5.5L, bmw has a 6.0L. the bmw has 48 valves, benz 36. benz has a SOHC, bmw has a DOHC. plus, the final drive ratio in the benz is better for fuel economy as well. I guess bmw must be ashamed of the mpg they get because they dont list it for those sedans.

Ive done the math, and mercedes makes a HELL of alot better car than bmw ever thought of making.

mercedes are far better cars, Safer and faster.

more luxurious and all around better, plus they have some of the best handling, and because of there computer systems they can actually "lean" into the turns.

Thats funny that the SLK55 has to have a supercharger to even come close to the M3's time.

AB99....i totally agree with that...
y'all have really good arguments...BUT...i think the beamerz have to win coz they arejust an all round perfect car...great performance...whatever the model...whereas with mercz...well to get the luxury you have to get the more expensive models...the basic models are total s***...even though i have a bmw, i aint biased coz i am getting a merc soon too...soz i can't help myself!!
