Sit in the GLS and you'll see more hard plastic in the cabin, notably on the lower half of the doors. The plastic beneath the seats isn't flush with the leather either. The Bimmer, even without Individual pkg, uses higher quality materials and is better built. Let's not forget that every GLS on a dealer lot has Mb Tex whereas BMW rarely stocks cars with fake leather.

Merc interiors are overrated. The designs are tacky especially at night, and the quality isn't there.
But you'll get everyone who sees any Mercedes' interior and think it's high quality and better than BMW/Audi because it has overly bright ambient lighting and dual screens. The design may be pretty but sit in any current Mercedes and it's easy to tell that it isn't better than any comparable BMW.
