I really love SUVs and they fit more people, but take up gas, then w/ the mercedes, i really love sports cars and it does have very good gas mileage, but doesn't hold very many people...please tell me your choice.. *pics of both attached*
Of the two? Go with the merc, you are young leave the SUV's for the soccer mom's.
But why not get an e36 M3? You can get a pretty decent M3 for about 15k these days. Some are even as low as 10k. It'll be more fun to drive than the merc and more mod friendly too.
