what is the best millage to buy a benz or a bmw
No real answer for that. I go off of how the car was maintained. Get a PPI completed before purchase. I assume your buying used, I also like to stay under 100K. That way you will get a few more years out of it depending on how many miles you drive a year. HTH's
Good morning Carprice, Again I agree with Tom. Assuming that you are talking used, I would look for a certified car, and or a car with around 5,000 miles or 5 months remaining on the factory warranty. Or even a car with a extended BMW warranty. Make sure that it includes the electronics, most aftermarket ones only cover engine and drive train, which is usually catastrophic and they don't cover the computers. These beautiful brands are both equipped with sophisticated electronics which in most cases protect the engines and drive trains. If you do purchase one with a warranty, put it through its paces right off the bat for at least the first month. If any warnings or problems shows up, get it into service right away. There are usually some hidden bugs in used cars, but once addressed you should be in good shape with proper maintenance for quite a while. Good luck, Rats
Both MBZ and BMW's will start needing shocks, 2nd set of tires, rotors, bushings, water pumps, alternators and possibly belts hoses and gaskets after 70k miles; By 100k most of those should have been done...but i wouldn't assume it....for $200 take it to dealer for a pre-purchase inspection so you know what you're in for; it will help negotiate the price down as well.
