Re: Bimmer or mercedes??

Having got three BMWs on fleet, the newest being 6 years old, I would have said BMW.

They now produce a fwd 2 series and the 116 and 118 are only three cylinders.
This is not the reason I ever bought BMW. I bought them for quality, size and engines, in particular the 6 cylinder models.

There is no way I plan on buying a new one and as for Merc, they lost their quality as well some time ago.

I have no idea of any modern I would buy. The Punto we have is now 4years old and 20k. I have no plans to change that either. We bought this new after 3 previous GPs including a T jet. The GP is a great car and wil stay with us until it or I die first.

I'll keep buying older cars as they are more interesting and offer more than any modern.

BMW or Mercedes?

Neither. If I wanted something more upmarket than a Vauxhall etc, I would in fact buy an Alfa Romeo.
