BMW of course. A new Merc might interest me now but they lost their way for a long time. The wife has an Audi which replaced an Audi and the running costs and repairs are far higher than my BMW (had them for 14 years now and never had more than tyres and servicing to pay for)

Audi have an A7 looked at Mercedes CSL and Bmw 640 Grand Coupe and all are great cars but the bit you see all the time as the driver is the inside and the Audi wins hands down. Like look of Mercedes and BMW but Loved Audi and don't see as many as well

Currently own an Audi, test drove the RS3 and the M3 and I have to say I enjoyed the M3 more so, now I have converted to BMW, more fun for the money I think, never owned a Merc so can't comment, no doubt a great brand but then again the Germans know how to make great cars, just go back in history to find out why.

In general I'd would say BMW make better driver's cars and with better engines.

Mercedes I've always perceived as being the higher class brand overall. They never get pulled into the mudslinging that BMW and Audi drivers face either.

Audi make some nice cars, but I've never considered them on par with BMW or Mercedes.

BMW for me too.

I really do appreciate the classic mercs, but modern ones leave me cold for some reason. Audis are form over function.

Beemer for me. Have loved them for ages. Even my old knackered E30 was good. My Brother's E-class is nice, but I feel 20 years too young for it.
