    Im looking at 2001 models of both with comparable miles (56k on the bmw, 59k on the benz) Bmw is a 750il with Navigation, sunroof, the usual stuff, all completly stock. The Benz is an s600 With Navi, sunroof, etc, it also has 20" rims, tinted windows, and the updated Front and rear lights (both of those things are things i would have done otherwise) The bmw is like $7,500 cheaper, but i really like the benz more. Question is- which is going to be more reliable, cheaper to run (fuel, and upkeep)? So off-topic- which car would you get?

    don't buy a v12 if you're worried about fuel economy...


    and to answer your question i'd take the bmw over the benz in a heart beat

    but thats just me i'm a bmw sack rider!

    being from a Bavarian family, anything other than a BMW is blasphemy. but do some research and the results will speak for themselves.

    My av is so small you can't see it!
    1. S600 is a higher end car than the 750
    2. s600 maintenance prices will kill you even more than the 750
