Merc or Beemer

Recommended Posts

Friends are moving back and I am able to buy his 5yo merc or her 4yo beemer. Both  are Thai made and maintained by dealer. Back home I drove Merc for 15 years with out any problems. In Thailand I drive Honda HRV. If you own one, I would appreciate your reply.

The 5yo merc or the 4yo beemer either would be OK depending whether I liked the model they are.

The Honda HRV are good too but we know what it is.

Without the model its like saying Honda or Yamaha .it all depends on the model i prefer Honda's but if the Honda was a wave125 and the Yamaha was a R1 then it would be different.

Also price of each .

I have mercedes only at my house, it makes things easier.  The whole point of buying one is for status with certain people,  if you have a BMW many Thais still have no idea of the value.  But it depends why you are buying one. (maybe you are not doing business here)

Which models are they?

 

Both are likely to be good cars. The BMW may still have 1 year remaining from its 5 year BSI. 

 

 

 

 

[roll on the comments such as “where I come from a BMW / Merc is a taxi” or “these cars are only for status” or “these cars are overpriced Honda’s” etc etc - from the jealous who can’t really afford them, even though some will still comment that they can afford them but would never spend the money on them !!]

That 1 year remaining on warranty means the value will go down fast in 1 years time.

Some time ago a guy in my condo was selling an immaculate E Class, it looked like new and was low mileage. It was six years old and the asking price was the same as a brand new one back home. I just can’t bring myself to pay c300% tax on a car. Perceived status isn’t that important to me.

But there are those out there with spare cash that want a particular ride. Wish I had the spare cash for a Merc....😊

After all, a guy just paid $3,400,000 for the 1968 Mustang from the film Bullit that needs restoring....

OP meant "Bimmer" (BMW car) instead of "Beemer" (BMW motorcycle)...

I hesitated to ask for deciphering :biggrin:

A bit more detail (exact model, mileage/km), driven by? would help.
