Audi A4 is the one to watch out for.

The C-class has been plagued with too many quality and build issues. Even with Merc's service network...

I forgot to mention this. The BMW I drove was a 1999 BMW 328 with about 135K on it. It was traded in for a brand new VW Passat 2.0T.

Well its hard for me to really pick one. If i hadnt had a bad experience with my C-class then probably that would be my top pick.
C-class - Looks
3 series - Engine
A4 - Reliabilty

Audi vs BMW vs MercB.
Well designed vs stunning design vs slightly boring design [personel opinion]
anyways, its the bavarian machine for me....no doubt abt that.

but lets take a look by integrating each of them [silly, tune them ]
Audi RS4 vs BMW M3 vs Merc AMG C...and the picture changes completely.
Audi RS4 emerges to be the clear winner here....solid looks + breathtaking performance couple into a car, dare I say, better than the M3. MB has a lot of ground to cover as far as the junior segment is concerned....bring the brilliant S into the picture and you know which brand to worship?

no engine category has be specified so ..taking the high end engine specs into consideration ...no doubt the A4 (3.2 V6) is my first choice followed by the 330i ... (i cant believe C got voted ! )

250 horses delivered at 4 wheels produced by a superb fsi engine ... germean engineering at its finest ...

My vote goes to Audi.
Quattro All Wheel Drive is unique in industry.
No one beats Audi in adverse driving condition.

not quite true there buddy .. agreed it was the Audi's who brought AWD into motorsport world ...but in terms of AWD technology, the japs have left audi trailing quite a distance behind ...the Quattro is good but not the best anymore...

i wud love to own a BMW 3 series, for something luxurious and which i coudl use for daily use, BMW is a true self driving car! as their ads go by " BMW...Sheer Driving Pleasure"! they are true to it! i had driven a BMW M3 in Aussie some time back, and was mesmerised by the drive, and had a chance to sit in the current model 760, and was floored! BMW Rocks! Rap! Bangs!

thou, i Merc C class and the Audi A4 are good, i never liked the interiors of the Audis, in general. the Merc have lot better interiors compared to the audi. the only car i luv of Audi wud be the Audi TT!

For me its lie this between the german sedans -
Audi A4 v/s BMW 3 Series v/s Mercedes Benz C class
I would choose the 3 series or an Audi if it was in diesel.

BMW 5 series v/s Audi A6 v/s Mercedes Benz E class -
I would choose the E270 anyday because a person spending so much would be a back seat driver and for them, comfort is the most important and the E is the most comfortable and relitively quite good fun to drive too.

Audi A8 v/s BMW 7 series v/s Mercedes Benz S class -
Being one of the lucky few getting a chance to sit in these, my vote goes to the Audi. It has a presence, its blody big, awesome to drive and damn comfortable.
