It really doesn't matter who is no 1. The quest to seek #1 only results in lower quality for the rest of us. Look at BMW. Quality has been declining. No way to argue against that. MB has stopped seeking pure volume and they have concentrated their efforts on quality and it is paying off. Remember when MB was the gold standard? They're already near the top now.

I was curious because a couple of months back someone said that this year, Audi would beat BMW... LOL
Thanks for the info.
Fact of the matter is that the Germans dominate the luxury segment. That's it. No one holds a candle to them. In some areas of the world, we have Lexus or Cadillac making dents, but worldwide it's not even a fair comparison.
As long as MB/Audi/BMW battle it out to make fantastic cars, we, as consumers, benefit tremendously.
