    First of all, while some may choose to bash, absolutely nothing wrong with what you said, my Boricua friend Mr. PR 335d. The comments reflect your experiences, and I’d argue it’s not the 1st time I’ve seen such comments regarding BMWs.

    Which is to say, it’s reality.

    Now, short of a time period in the late 90s/early 2000s when MB’s quality dropped somewhat – it’s all on record, when has Mercedes NOT elicited the following two words……………….QUALITY and SOLIDITY?

    So, while this car nut consumer still wants and M3 or M4 – or a BMW with a 3.0 L diesel, it seems a bit much to suggest MB trails in terms of quality. Click here to enlarge (What?) At least not on planet earth, where competition brings out the best of all products.

    Translation? The game may not be over - MB could get complacent - but Benz is in the lead and can stay on top if they want.

    I mean be serious. When the latest 5-series was introduced it appeared so clear those clowns in Munich removed it’s driving dynamics and made it an overweight porker with crappy steering (read: A piss-poor imitation of a wannabe E-Class).

    My advice?

    BMW, be yourself, though one must give you credit for listening to the comparison testers and making the M6 Gran Coupe much more dynamic an offering a similar option package for the M5.

    But don’t get it twisted. Y’all make decent vehicles, but you need to stay in your “near-luxury but sporty” class..............with your funny math. Remember, it's about how many REAL car registrations happen from your dealerships, not some sales number you pull outta your a Click here to enlarge , uh, never mind.

    Go after Audi instead, the flash & glamour company with glorified front drivers.

    Benz has high volume cars coming next year. The affordable GLA and next generation C-class being. I see Benz claiming the title again.

    I would think so, they are making smart decisions. The difference is Benz is not just rebadging Smarts to inflate numbers.

    Bozo very true MB was detrimental and i saw some of its work on a I believe it was a 2006 convertible AMG wiring against my 02 MCS, my Minis wiring was EXCELLENT and MB AMG wiring was lets say TERRIBLE, that said my mechanic by the name of BURU and his crew told me this way "you buy a an MB and we will disown you, LOL"

    Like Blackjet stated by MB bringing the AFFORDABLE A class and C-class platforms it will bring more buyers to them and then many can say I OWN a MERCEDES!!!

    Precisely, PR 335d.........and I should mention that it took me 'til 2011 to get my hands on an AMG Benz, though I'd been scoping them out since several years spend over in Europe way back when, though they were still kinda aftermarket tuners. Became obsessed after too many to count blasted by me (@ 90-95 mph) on the Autobahn and Italian Autostrada (doing well into triple-digit speeds.)

    Then their quality went to crap, recalls followed, and yours truly would eventually snatch up a refreshed 2006 Skyline 350 GT, err, Infiniti G35.........just before your 335d came out. (Dammit!!)

    On the contrary, speaking the C-class you mentioned, with standard 4Matic coming on our US models, that will get serious consideration - especially with that 329 hp/354 lb. ft., 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6.
    Unless, of course, an M3/M4 or 335d or RS5 or S5 shows me an offer I can't refuse.

    Bottom line, as car nuts it is fully permissible to dig & spend our cash on great products from multiple manufacturers.

    But if they ain't payin' attention and muck up the quality control, we ain't spending sh............oops! My bad, Boost Bosses.

    Last, but not least, did I ever tell you that, as a youngster I had many dreams of being a Caguas Criollos Winter League baller? Long story. And a small world.

    Adios, dude.
