I went to Cypress today, but it was raining and really foggy. Still had fun in the soft snow though! I didn't drive a Mercedes or BMW up though, Blizzaks on the Odyssey baby!

Actually I heard the same thing from my sales guy @ MB a couple of months ago (chatting with him while waiting for my SA). He mentioned the E-coupe and (to a lesser degree) the C in particular for stealing market share from BMW. Apparently the wait time is now 6+ months instead of the usual 3-4.

Anybody work in sales @ MB or BMW? It's probably an internally published document. Not everything is on the internet ya know.

Quote:
Mercedes chief executive officer Marcus Breitschwerdt said Thursday the company has gradually increased its business here by adopting a strategy of shifting away from a model lineup that suited Americans to one that was more European.

“In Canada, the social structure is like many European countries – middle class, hard working and skilled people,” he said in an interview. “They also care more about fuel economy and the environment.”
This is probably a big one. I knew several people who wanted to get mid-size cars but did not want a huge 5L engine (CLK500 for example) and therefore backed away. Now if only they'll bring in more lower end Diesels, and the A-class instead of Smart..

Actually, you still haven't posted anything even resembling a source, so this is nothing but a rumor.
