I have to drive to St Louis tomorrow, 4.5 hours each way, coming back Friday. Which car do I drive?

There’s a 40-50% chance of rain both days, though the temps should be comfortable. The BMW also gets better gas mileage (probably 5 mpg difference?)

But the Mercedes is way more comfortable with massaging seats, and is quieter, with a better stereo. The BMW is a manual, but this is all highway (I 55 the whole way).

I’m driving alone, and leaning toward the BMW in hopes of fair skies and saving a bit on gas. But if it rains the whole trip I’ll wish I had the Benz.
