      Which car to buy: BMW 320d Sportline vs Merc C class

      Hi,

      I am looking to buy a new D segment car, RWD, and zeroed in on these two: BMW 320d Sportline, Merc C class 220.

      Took a TD and both felt good, though Merc was a not as smooth as 320d. I am inclined towards 320d as I am a driving enthusiast. The 320d is costing me 36.7 lacs on road (Delhi number, ZERO discounts) whereas Merc (wtih 2 lacs discount) is costing me around 34.5.

      With BMW, I am not going for the BSI package as it is costing me 2 lacs extra (out of my budget). This new beemer has good RFTs, and the ride quality is amazing. I am tempted to go for 320d sportline. Any ideas/suggestions?

      Thanks,

      Vivek

      Plus, the BM is a newer design, for me the newer is always better than an older design.

      Thanks nfspoet: just wanted to know from previous BMW owners, is BSI really worth? Does a car like BMW has frequent issues with its parts?

      Hi Vikas,

      I am assuming you purchases the older version. Can you tell me how much the BSI package cost you? Was it a 3yr or 5 yr package?

      Also, I am planning to use the new car for daily driving (ggn-delhi-ggn). Did you face any issues with the car driving daily?

      Vikas: I am talking with Bird Automotive GGN (sector 14). Today I took another test drive of F30 320d Sportline, and it was amazing. The new run-flats are so much better now. I love the sharp exterior of this new model, but disappointed with the iDrive. It has no HDD space.
