haa haa nice ads!

BTW even over in Singapore, not the car manufacturers themselves, but rather the car owners themselves have alot to say with regards to the different brands.

Ppl who move up from Japanese Makes to VW deem themselves as successful and into the Premium Category.

Moving up to Audi is seen as a trendy and successful individual.

Quite abit of the individuals in the above 2 makes seem to go bashing on makes like BMWs or Mercedes by comparing the performance or how they can smoke BMWs or Mercedes with their souped up VWs and Audis.

Audis and VWs are nice cars IMO and honestly I have seriously considered the latest A4 before. But the fanboys that go with these makes are seriously duh......

Of cos there are fanboys in BMW or Mercedes forums as well but just that much lesser compared to the other makes......

It should be more of a, I like this brand so I buy it kinda mentality. Not the I like this brand so I go bashing the other brands kinda attitude.....

I have been noticing such trends for sometimes although I do not have any firm numbers in black and white.

The best thing, over in local automotive forums, I RARELY see Porsches, Ferrari or Lambo forums bashing other makes.....

More self assured individuals I guess...

And Lastly, Yes, Im a BMW fanboy and Im the more self assured BMW owner I guess

But then cars is a bad and fairly inaccurate indicator of one's wealth isnt it? The important thing would be to have lotsa liquidity and valuable assets, not the car one drives aint it right?

Hmmm strange though......

Being contented and happy with your ride is the most important isnt it? Not what others see or think....

Ops guess I'm off topic...:P

.... it's low class. So Audi's "new luxury" ad is contradicting itself. I like Audi tho, im just saying

Well most of the people that will be watching probably wont know the ad wars so they just wont bother to think of audi the way we think so it will look good, mercedes will have great mouth watering add`s with their top notch cars. And bmw with the X3. A bit moderate dont you think
I agree that there should be no comparisons againts competitors in the ad..its cheap...but its business end of the day..smoe how it started...but when audi and merc are producing ads with the best cars in their fleet..why cant BMW use an M5, M3 or a Z4 or the 7 series...why an X3...I hate X3...it cant match the rival brands in anyway.. I am a BMW fanatic..but X3 simply looks ugly! BMW needs to rethink their ad strategy...

Who will win ?

I'm a Bimmer fan for sure but I bet Audi spends more money for advertising during the Superbowl.
