Question Skoda RS or Merc Kompressor (C class)??

hey Guys,
This one should be intersting if not done already that is. Both are ~150bhp one is super chargerd other is a turbo. Both promise tarmac burning performance however take into account factors like ride/handling,ownership cost over 5 yrs ,comfort, build quality ,efficiency, etc...
what will you choose n why?
keep em coming.
cheers,
Raihan

P.S Ignore the initial price difference.

a merc is a merc and carries that 3 pointer star and they both fall in an different class . the merc is almost double the price of the rs and i would rather go in for the rs as i cannot affordd the c class at the moment !

If i want to burn the tarmac i would perfer the RS anyday over the merc. For me the C class Merc is more of an executive saloon.

3 pointer v/s performance. if it was my money i'd get the RS. if i was not going to foot the bills (incl maintainance) i'd love to have a 3 pointed star in my garage. besides in mumbai traffic the RS (even detuned to 150bhp) performance is not utillised.
