Why does it have to be down to those 2 choices?
I mean, don't get me wrong, I've driven them both. I don't like either of them, but I'd have to choose....
I'd probably go against the flow, and say the Land Rover, just because I don't like the feel and ride of the MB. I mean, the speedometer sucks, the breaks suck, and the only redeeming part of the whole deal is....the sound, and it is just ok. Even with that, I've driven that same MB with and it HAD radio problems. Go figure.
But, I'm curious what your parents think? Or could they care less? Besides basing all your opinion off us, why don't you go drive it yourself and tell us what you think. It's going to you YOUR vehicle.
Anywho, I'd go for the Land Rover. Even though, I don't like it either of those choices, it is much better than the MB in my opinion.
And, yes, the coupe does look wierd. Not to my tastes.
