Ford owns Mercedes? I don't think so. Daimler Benz recently bought Chrysler.....Ford does own Volvo...is that what you meant?Originally posted by DEADPOOL
Uh the E36 had a 6 as well.
Also dangrass, i dont consider mercedes cars etc to be of german quality. They are owned by ford(POS company). But BMW tend to be ok, when i talk about build quality im not talking about just the engine. But overall quality is greater. When it comes to accidents etc american cars can rarely compete with the strength of the germans. I remember reading an article where there was an accident between a Ford (i think an f-150) and a BMW 5 series. Basically the truck went into oncoming traffic at about 50 MPH with the BMW doing roughly the same speed. When the hit, the BMW destroyed the truck sending the trucks engine up into the cockpit killing the driver(im pretty sure he died). The BMW had very little damage to the cockpit, and the driver walked away.
And then you have porsche possibly the strongest sports cars on earth. Who else can go into the Dacar rally for the first time and win with a sports car they use on the street(959).
