    Mercedes AMG or BMW Motorsport?

    What do you think about AMG and Motorsport?
    Who is the best. The elegance, the power and the maneuverability. I think AMG is not bad, their cars are really nice, more than 300hp and very easy to use.
    But we can't forget BMW with Motorsport. They have very good cars. When you take a BMW M3... there are no words to explain what this car can procure when you drive it. The BMW M5 and the Z3 M. Two bombs on the road.
    No I love Mercedes but I must admit that BMW Motorsport is the best.
    And you what do you think about that?

    I prefer BMW Motorsport. AMG does produce some really nice cars, don't get me wrong, but there's just something about those BMWs that's a bit more appealing than AMG.

    I haven't heard anything of AMG splitting from Mercedes..so that might just be a rumor, but like I said, I haven't heard anything at all about that. To me it doesn't seem likely as AMG is in the midst of producing that V12 to make the S65, CL65, and SL65....

    BMW Motorsport

    I love BMW and their Motorsport department. For me it's a leader. AMG produce nice Benz but we all know that all AMGs don't have manual tranny. It's a real shame. How can you drive a 612hp Benz with an automatic tranny??? Where is the sportsmanship?? I know that I have a 320hp Porsche with an automatic tranny but I have made this choice cause my wife can't drive a manual tranny and it's not a simple automatic tranny, that's a steptronic and it's very performant.
    For AMG I can't understand why they don't have manual tranny. BMW got a new kind of automatic tranny. That's the SMG mode. and it's not like others automatic. It's faster than a manual tranny and it's easy to use.

    But we can't forget BMW with Motorsport. They have very good cars. When you take a BMW M3... there are no words to explain what this car can procure when you drive it. The BMW M5 and the Z3 M. Two bombs on the road.

    My friend's uncle is a doctor and he bought a black CLK 55 AMG a month ago, and he said that it was hands down better than the M3 coupe, much faster and easier to drive.
    I like both AMG and M and I agree on the fact that Mercedes-Benz should provide an option for a manual transmission.
    It's really a matter of opinion.

    BMW all the way. Mercedes is an ok car, but bmw has just been pushing out cars that are amazing. Take a look at the M5. That is one hellatious car. And M3 is an awesome saloon. CSL = best saloon in the world. So my choice is bimmer.

    I'm placing my vote for BMW, because so far, I like the designs of their cars much better. Moreover, the fact that Mercedes still won't give us a goddamn stick-shift!#!#%^*$@!11

    Since when does easier to drive equal better? Ease and comfort are usually the opposite for skill and thrill. I prefer the second option.

    I voted for MPower. Why?

    My interpertation is that AMG focuses to much on all out power. Take for example their recent sl55, cl65's, etc. Both are pushing close to the 500hp/600hp mark respectivly but they are heavier than many SUV's, while I have no doubt that they are not remarkable handlers, I doubt that they could be the best handling saloons.

    MPower on the other hand attempt to produce moderately powered cars in combination with balance. Take the M3 (and the M5) for example.
