Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class as you will with the BMW 650, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 650, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 650.

Since the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is much wider than the BMW 650, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 650.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 650.
