This one's easy... S5 although I'm still not the biggest fan of the facelift.

I find Audi cars looking outdated the quickest. That my opinion. If I had a choice, I'd go with the BMW.

Also, how did you like the new facelift on the S5's in 2013? Like the changes they made in the front looks? I think it makes it look much more modern and is definately an improvment.
bought the 2011 a5 for $40k used. I'm leasing the S5 for around $800/month. I do legal work in Oil and Gas.

I like the changes, although it took some getting used to. Everyone and their mom has stated to copy Audi's LED running lights so I guess a change was in order. I had test driven all the Mercedes, BMW's, Lexus, Infiniti's in this price range and I still think the A/S 5 is the sexiest car in it's class. I still get alot of second looks in my Audi, the BMW and Benz have become stale imo (and I see them everywhere, the audi is still a bit more unique)

This is interesting because from the responses in here it almost seems like a 3 way tie. All 3 cars are very nice but just aesthetically speaking the BMW and Audi look the most "average" to me. Mercedes looks just a little more unique.

I do think that as an overall brand...ALL CAR MODELS INCLUDED...Mercedes is head and shoulders above all other luxury cars...in fact I would put them #1 over every car brand period...Maybach being a Mercedes brand has them right in the mix with the Super-Luxury brands like Bentley and Rolls...they have high performance sports cars like the McLaren that are comparable to exotics like Ferrari and Lambo...and above that they have a long classic history of great cars many of which are highly sought after by collectors.

Graviton I would NOT say Mercedes is the most reliable at all. In fact if you go by reliability charts.. I'd say BMW followed by Audi, then Mercedes are the most reliable. I'm not a Euro lux car guy so I personally don't know a ton but I doubt that's true. Audi is known for electrical problems and failing turbos, BMW is known for transmission issues in certain models and Mercedes have a multitude of issues historically.

Since my dad has owned various Benzes over the years, i can say that they are far from reliable especially the late 90s to mid/late 00s models some of the worst Mercedes ever produced. Not only do things break a lot but the parts are also terribly expensive. It's the same with BMWs
Audi has improved their reliability drastically in recent years and are probably the most reliable among German Luxury Brands.

Overall Audi's are the most mechanically sound but the problem is that their couple big flaws are VERY expensive ones. The repair bill for two bad turbos (on turbo models) will run you thousands. The repair bill for failing electrical issues are also not cheap at all.

I also recall hearing, i'm not sure how credible that is though,that an Audis reliability regresses rapidly after the warranty runs out.
