: Has anyone had a chance to test drive and compare the Benz 320 CLK to the 3 seris Ci, other than hp the cars seem very comparable in stats other than price...
Mercedes in general have a different focus than the BMW. They are Germany's answer to the Cadillac. They cruise well on the highway, have great brakes, and generally handle well. My neighbor has a 230 CLK Kompressor, and it is a nice car. Apples to Apples, however, I prefer my 328Ci with Premium, Xe... Forget the price issue. Just that for the fairly sporty driving which I enjoy, the BMW is a Sport Sedan, and the Mercedes is a bit more of a luxury car.
