So is, "standard economy luxury sedan"...
You can add as many toppings as you want, but a hotdog is still a hotdog. As for me, a 'bare bones' filet mignon with a little bit of salt & pepper is just fine...

ok.. my mother in law just bought a brand new pilot a couple year ago... she is a bit on the older side.. all she wanted was the room and awd.. she didnt want nav, because she doesnt know how to use it.. leather? no she said it gets too hot and she doesnt like the feeling.. who are you to tell her to get a fully loaded pilot for a extra 7 or 8k for stuff she didnt want? she even said she can use that 8k to go to cambodia.. is she wrong?
were talking about entry level luxury aka c300s and 328is which to me is like those replica cars people make
id rather take the pilot your aunt drives over a base 328 or c300 tbh
Whats the reason people buy a benz or a bmw? LUXURY AND PERFORMANCE right? thats why they cost so much compared to their competitors
You dont get luxury or performance in a 328 or c300 all your really paying is a high markup for the mercedes/bmw name
these entry level cars are for corny kids like
Haha! The only thing that posts like this provoke is additional leech posts from ninja & others that, more or less, still can't afford either. Then you have pompous NTers like me that shouldn't even bother, but still like to correctly inform others as not to be influenced by this filth. Honestly, you're just grasping at straws now so I hope you're trolling. Yes, styling is subjective, but you're not going to find many people take a Pilot over an entry-level luxury make/model (Maybe on NT). By your standards, please define 'luxury'' & 'performance'...
Are you assuming that luxury requires a butler & an endless amount of 'gadgets'?
Are you assuming that performance requires 1,000+ HP? Are you strictly a numbers guy (i.e. 'brochure' enthusiast)?
What about the award winning International Engine of the Year in the N20?
What about the refined driving dynamics in the C300? Literally, the car was engineered to have a superior power-to-weight ratio & is one of the lightest compact sedans out there. Definitely delivers one of the most balanced rides on the market today...
As I said in my first post, most of the backlash is coming from people that are trying to justify themselves as being below average-to-average consumers. So many "smart" shoppers yet their actual situation in life most likely doesn't reflect that...Side note
: Still sad to see that even when comparing your Top of the Line "examples", no one has yet to fully answer the actual "value" in them when compared to a base
5-series (or any car for that matter). Even with your best/'top shelf' domestic vehicle, there's no overwhelming evidence that suggests one should opt for it...
