When the Brits can make a car, let me know. I'd love to rub it in his face that Mini Coopers were british at a time but now german.. says a lot. Couldn't get through 15 seconds, far too much ignorance.

I actually watched it until the first commercial. He does have a valid argument concerning newer cars. He is also correct about the older 'Benzs (the ones we all know and love), in that they were (and in some cases still are) superior. Be that as it may, MB is still selling their cars all over the world, and at a much higher price than their competitors with the exact same technology. In years past, MB was ahead of every one else in technology, and yes-price. So in a way, there is some truth to what the guy is saying. That is just my take on it, yours may be different.
