3 series or C-class?

Hi, I'm in the market for a new car and I'm deciding mostly between a c230 and a bmw 328i. Right now I'm leaning towards BMW because I don't have any kids to cart around and the Mercedes just feels so, well, sedan-like. Also, the Infiniti g35 is still in the running but barely. Which car is the best? Here's a link to the exact cars..

Well here is my take

I like BMW more than Mercedes to begin with

Style goes to Mercedes, the new C is just gorgeous, new BMW is ungodly
Performance goes to BMW. I havent driven either but in my experience, BMW has a more sporty feel to it
Price, I cant tell you about either
The G35 is also a nice car, its up there for me with the BMW

My order of preference
G35, BMW, Mercedes

Comical really!! Haven't driven either yet "in your experience..."

Since I happen to own three BMW's and one MBZ, I'll tell you I prefer BMW's. However there are things I prefer about MBZ (and Lexus btw) over BMW. It's the performance I like of BMW...but my MBZ does have the same pep...just a different "less sporty" feel to the drive. The MBZ feels like a tourning sedan, very soft. Of course it's not a "sporty" model. If you want service from the dealer go with 1. Lexus 2. MBZ and lastly BMW. This is my experience having owned all three of these makes. Currently no Lexus.
