I have the ability to purchase one of the three cars listed below. Each has abut the same milage 48-52,000 and are all within the $27,000 range. Taking everything into consideration what does everyone recommend. Other than appearance I have no other reference points.
Thanks, I appreciate everyone's input.
...2008 Jaguar Vanden Plas
...2006 BMW 750Li
...2006 Mercedes CLS 500

I assume you realize that all 3 of these cars depreciate like mad because of the risk of expensive repairs as they age. The Jag is a sweet car, I owned an S-TYpe 4.2 VDP a while back and loved it. Problem is the Jag will depreciate faster than the other 2, and, I was running into factory parts availability problems after TaTa bought Jag from Ford. The Jag will probably tend to nickel and dime you more than the other two as well. To me, choosing between the other two is simply a matter of your personal tastes. I currently own a Mercedes, because it suits my taste in cars better than BMW does. One factor you might consider is the availability of local service to keep the one you choose serviced and repaired. Where I live the Mercedes dealer is excellent, the BMW dealer not so much.

Hope this helps:

Benzo no doubt, the 06 750 is alright, not really that good. The jag is horrible. Also check out the 06 S500 or even 07 S550, these benzes are the most impressive cars ive driven.

Have you tried looking into the WRX STI?
