Having owned many Mercedes in the family, I was very pro-Merc and anti-BMW. I've always loved the design of BMWs, but I could never get past the stigma of them being a-hole drivers. Had plans of moving out to California so was looking to get a convertible, but the MB SLK just didn't do it for me. And here we are, my first BMW, an e89. I am falling more and more in love with it every day (and BMW in general) and less and less with Mercedes (can you say going in the wrong direction in design?
). My next car probably won't be a BMW as I have my eye on the C7... There are just too many sweet cars out there, but you can bet I will be back because these are indeed fantastic machines.
