Of late I'd take an Audi S5.
But my vote goes for BMW - influenced a lot by this one car - the 850. Maybe someday I'll get to drive one. No harm dreaming , eh ?

I used to dislike mercedes-benz until I saw them side by side to beemers at the Toronto Auto show.

Mercedes rocks.

Audi's are good but and competitive but need to put some effort to be the best. Just my opinion.

Mercedes all the way especially the AMG ones. Yes its got nothing to do with the Indian common mans fascination with the brand. I know whats Mercedes as well as what BMW and Audi are.Yet its mercedes

What is the fascination with BMW? How many have actually driven both Merc and BMW and felt that BMW handles better than Merc? For normal city driving and spirited driving around twisties, an average driver like me didn't see considerable difference between BMW and Merc.

Regardless of any specific model, just as the father brand of cars, it is MERCEDES for me.
Why? Read Merve_extreme's signature!

Its quite something that a lot of people voting for Mercedes may be more knowledgable about BMW than some people voting for BMW!!!

Mercedes-Benz for me only, especially keeping the S-Class in mind. For each generation, this has been the best sedan in the world.

BMW = Hate their new designs and could never be seen in one. Too darn quirky.

Audi = Feel they lack character, especially when compared to Benz and BMW. Its neither here nor there.

Just going by that I'll go for Mercedes-Benz.

True they lack the character but for me its always BMW, they got a image of faster raving engines and something different from all other cars in its class.

I meant that the Audis lack character. BMW has a truckload of it!

i have never driven any of these beauties, so i will humbly remark about the appearances.

the mercs are classy. the BMWs have something weird about them that reminds me of south korea - i personally didn't like their fronts. and i LOVE understated designs - they look so confident that they don't have to wear flashy clothes to draw attention.

the audi looks the most elegant of all for me.
