I was going through all the polls and found that theres none on the great trio!!

So here it goes. Which one of the 3 would you go for if you had the cash?

Purely a choice of Brand. No model specific poll, but the power of the brand itself.

I would go for a Beemer, M5 to be precise
Though the new C-Class is a stunner

Audi has always been in the shadows of the other 2 IMO.

Answered Audi --- it's an image thing, I suppose, and I think Audi gives the most quality with the least ostentation.

But I have only five minutes experience of driving a BMW, and only drove Mercedes A Class --- which I guess don't count, as they never had that solid Merc quality.

C class is stunner from outside but interiors are very dull if they are providing similar interiors as in uk.

Merc fan out here,

IMO only the previous genereation M3 and the current Bangled BMWs really appeal to me but IMO Mercs have always had that certain something about them.

Audis arent even in the runnign for me, they look too bland.

that's exactly the reason i would choose audi. they seem to have all the amenities with none of the perceived snobbishness.
but it's too hard to vote. i really love the older BMWs like the E30, E34, E38 and even the E36.
even though there was a time when mercedes' quality dropped, i still love them. so yeah, this is a though one.

If I am going to drive 50 miles to work, I will take my C or S class.
If I am going around the twisties on a wet day, I would take the RS4.
If I am going to burn the track, it will be in my M3.
If I just want to cruise around town to pick up ladies while enjoying the lovely weather, I will have my SL65

But first I have to buy a house with a garage big enough to hold these cars. Second I need to find a bank to loot.
