The BMW e34 5 series 535i (1989-1993) with a manual tranny and "big six" engine has a well-earned reputation as a very durable and fun to drive car. I own a 1992 535i, and quite frankly it's much more responsive/better handling than my 1991 W124 300e 4matic. It's also been much less costly to own than the MB, with its transfer case, a/c and head gasket woes.

My take is it's hard to generalize, so don't put too much credibility into anyone who attempts to do so.
