Why do you prefer BMW over a Mercedes or Audi?
Because M-series is so famous in making sportcar.
BMW's handle better. end of story.
i have worked for mercedes benz- let me tell you this...........i have owned 57 BMWs. They are a drivers car , not a badly made, badly handling status symbol.
i would surely go for bmw any day. specially X5.i love the SUV. http://x5bmw.net/pictures-2010/
Audi's are money pits but some Mercedes have awesome powerful engines with great exhaust notes and you can extract a decent amount more power out of them with some minor mods. They are ugly though!
BMW's are the best-driving cars in the world. however Mercedes - at least up to the early 1990's - were better built. If you have the time, search for an 80's model of each of these brands and see how well each survived over time. There are nearly no Audi's to speak of, very few BMW's in good condition and yet there are literally thousands of Mercedes that look almost brand new.
