Mercedes Benz and BMW pulling out of the Detroit Auto Show!


Well, good riddance! BMW and Mercedes can't compete with Cadillac and Lincoln and they know it! Time to sell my Mercedes as the company is now a disgrace to my driveway! Cadillac and Corvette here I come!

Yo,

The bottom of the article, did also mention, that quite-a-few other manufacturers, aren't turning-out either. I'd say that it's simply too expensive to participate, & that having these folks pulling-out is simply a way of protest. Once one starts, many will follow too.

I don't honestly think that there are too many people that would purchase a MB ( or other ) from new, from their own hard-earned. These cars at their new-prices are tax-write-offs for people that generate that kind-of-income, meaning that they'd rather acquire a brand-new MB & lose $$$ in depreciation over time, than lose $$$ for no return in taxes. Taxes pay for the right of new ownership, should you be generating that kind-of-income. People such as these, also lease etc etc for whatever the terms-of-contract, that ensures a new vehicle every few years. You may never actually own one, but your taxes will pay for a new car all your business-life.

Here in Oz, if you win races on a Sunday, you'll sell plenty of new cars on Monday...Hopefully some racing is on the agenda !

Entry level Mercedes Benz is under $40k here Rastus and there are a lot of them crawling around now days. 

Let them protest, good riddance to them.. The show will still go on and it might even be better without that sawed off half wit they call Dr. Z!
