Hello,

Any discount or freebies ? Seem impossible with new model...

Some years ago I saw Mercedes do not do well in quality or reliability surveys, The best were Japanes ie Honda Toyota etc

You should be able to google reliability etc JD Power was one I think

Not many benzers here ;-)

you must be joking

you will see either a BMW, benz or Porsche cayenne every 500 meters in bangkok

here in the northern part of thailand there are ALOT of newer benz models

Just highlights the level of corruption if so many thais (with an average income of 250,000 baht a year) can buy a car worth 3-4 million. Even in the west few people would spend $120,000 on a car.

In the West, I would never pay more than 60K USD for a car that here would cost more than $120K.

Let me get this right - you're saying the only way a Thai person could afford a USD $100K+ car is if they were somehow corrupt?

LOL.

I think the reason why so many thais drive european cars is that most are used

As many know, used price for european cars are very "low". especially bmw

Finance 84 months no problem.

and before the first major maintenance comes (swapping parts due wearing off) they realise how expenssive it is and sell it or dont swap parts at all

But ye back to the topic

I test drove the saloon model from a friend of mine 3 weeks ago (he bought it for 2.8M) and it is magnificent. Makes my 2013 accord feel like a plastic car. A big impressive step up from the last model

Looks like a s-class which makes it even more appealing

If you have the money for it, there is nothing wrong with buying what you want and mercedes is quality - just pick the right dealer that has a good reputation and where you can do future service

good luck

Some folk on this forum are so far out of touch with reality they they can't comprehend how a Thai can be successful without some form of negative input. The beleifs of these posters is fundamentally flawed, their Western arrogance is blinding when they fail to recognise that many Thai's are far smarter and far more successful than they are or ever will be.

I agree with you but all the successful Thai that I know have been mostly successful at being born in a rich family :-)

No problem with that, but among the Thai German cars drivers I know none of them bought it thanks to their hard work <3

By the way, to stay on topic, do you only own BM and what do you think about Benz ? No problem with your car as many reported problems with BMW on this forum ? Thanks.

I agree that even the top accord model gives the feeling of a slow boat when driving it. Some people dare to think that we buy German cars only for a badge, but these people certainly have never driven one or really know and understand nothing.

Since when most people living in the west are rich ? Of course many only buy $10000 cars because they are not able to make any good money.
