That's true, I'd never buy one myself. Would never buy an Audi again, tbh. I was sick of everybody modding 3 series about a decade ago and thought I didn't want a BMW again, but I realized later that I missed my BMWs. I imagine I might not like owning an MB either. One thing that really bothers me in MB's is the emergency brake pedal. BMW's, no matter how ugly they get, still feel just right.
