How did you pick your Mercedes vehicle?

For more context: I'm looking for specifically for information on how you decided on becoming a new or used Mercedes owner, and specifically how you picked the model you now own today. Not too interested in the actual purchasing process.

2017 GLE350 4MATIC, 2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i
I wanted a sport luxury AWD vehicle with similar towing performance, 7000lbs, and interior space as my outgoing VW Touareg.

I wanted a German vehicle.

I wanted to let someone else pay new car premium aka depreciation.

I had a budget in mind.

All of this led me to a one year old low mileage GLE350 4MATIC. No regrets.

2016 E400 Coupe (C207)
My current car is my fourth Mercedes-Benz vehicle, but it had been quite a while since I'd owned one; all previous models were from the 70s.

My most recent car prior to the e400 was a BMW 3-Series, which I loved, but motivation to trade it in grew from dissatisfaction with its loud, harsh, run-flat tires. While shopping for a replacement coupe, I looked at a Lexus RC and an Audi A5, but passed on both of them when neither the sales or service personnel could figure out how to work the on-board media players in the respective cars. I then looked at a 2017 MB c300 coupe, but quickly discovered that it had no spare tire in the trunk. The salesperson said I'd have to go back to 2016 to get a spare, so that's what I did. I chose an E-Class coupe over the C-Class simply because I liked the styling better.
