From the reports that I have read about the new A class and new M Class, the cars ooze quality, Mercedes have really pulled there socks up, lets hope it reflects in the future quality surveys. If you note, very few have issues with the new E class

What hits the nail on Bangles head is that, BMW designs seem to be getting worse while Mercedes is surely improving.

Car looks quite good, but the rear isn't changed yet...and thats the thing I hated in the earlier M Class. And it seems as if it has more capability and quality over the earlier M.
