In Reply to: BMW loosing its edge posted by tong on October 04, 1999 at 10:50:11:
: It looks like with all the problems occuring in the new E46 BMW is loosing its edge. BMW is focusing more on bumping up its sales and the quality is going down the drain.
: With the e46 coupes running around $40K I would just go for a Benz CLK coupe and be assured of the quality one expects after paying $40k.
: A BMW enthusiast (not for long).
Go ahead and buy a MB if you think they're any better. I can tell you this my sister has a c230 which was 35000. It's been in the shop 10 times for various things. What you have to understand is that all manufacturers no matter how good they are will produce a defective car once in a while. The complaints you hear from this board are from a limited sample of the total population. It is extremely difficult to draw any kind of a conclusion with any confidence from the data presented here.
None of the problems talked about here.
