I think the MB Platinum is a charge card. The BMW Visa is a revolver though....

I recently got the Amex MB Plat charge. You probably got the answers to your question, but to confirm for you -
Hope that helps!

Hopefully this is not a silly question, but can you PC and/or upgrade to this card if you are a current Amex charge card holder? I'm considering purchasing either a Benz or BMW in the future...

I don't know if a product change is possible but when I did inquire about the MB AmEx, the rep. told me the 50K bonus MR points are not available for current platinum members (I believe this is after product change?). However, I do believe if you want the 50K points, you can cancel your current card and re-apply for the MB Plat.
Right, Plat has to be cancelled, but unlike the "mainline" charge cards, there's no 90 day or 12 month restriction for the MB Platinum bonus.
For the added $25, the MB Platinum is better, if only for the $100 gift certificate for a Mercedes Benz accessory. I don't know for certain, but I'm sure a PC is possible; however, you won't get the 50K bonus.

I'm holding out for another 100k sign-up and pulling the trigger for the plat, next year.
