They didn't even use a comparable car in the add. Audi uses an A4 and BMW comes back with an e92 M3. It's really not the same target. Sure, "Checkmate" is clever, but you have to look at the entire add as a whole.

Audi got spanked. BMW is not only the superior car but the superior marketer. They should accept it and go back to what they do best.... Competing with AMG for second place in the sporty luxury sedan market.

Have you driven an A4? I'd rather a 335i E90
Have you driven an A5? Sure it's pretty but I'd rather a 335 E92

Audi's cars lack the passion and character that a BMW has.

PS'd. If you look closely, the period overlaps the car.

Lots of suggestions for responses from Audi fans here, just like the PS-ed one from this thread.

Yea but to the average person, they're not going to know the difference between a M3 or a M6 or a 328i or w/e. Sure, enthusiasts will know right away but the vast majority of the people will just see a clever billboard sign

Now the Audi billboard makes no sense to most people. Most are probably asking WTF? Nice sign pollution from both parties.
sign pollution? srsly?

No shit you have to look at it as a whole. I'm sorry your marketing skills are horrid.

Bottom line look at the buzz it has created? Seeing that is seeing the ad as a whole not just the car used.

Well, the fact is BMW doesn't make anything that can come anywhere near an R8 5.2 in any measure of performance...so...yeah. The O'RLY owl R8 billboard would be a good idea.

This whole billboard thing is mental.

BTW, the R8 is based on a detuned Gallardo engine and also uses its tranny. It's not really 100% an Audi now is it?
