New Audi commercials take not so subtle dig at BMW

Audi is airing two new commercials during the Winter Olympics currently underway. If you haven't yet seen it, they're not so subtle digs against Audi's main rivals - BMW and Lexus. Check out the spots inside.

Why does Audi constantly play the "I am better than you" Game via their marketing.


Let your product talk for its self.

**** Audi unless it's the V10 R8.

BMW> Audi....I think even Audi drivers realize this by now.

Isn't that the point of advertising? To tell people how your product is better than others?

Meh, let's hope it brings a substantive response from BMW. Equip the 335is sufficiently to put the S4 eating its dust in the rag comparos.

Hint: LSD option, AST or similar dampers option, lighter weight. MSRP under 50k, not over.

And damn, get some better ideas for BMW adverts.

Have you seen the most recent attempt on behalf of Audi? It just aired during the Olympics on NBC. Like any other Audi ad, it relied mostly on the image of a R8.
Chop chop BMW, lets see this super car in the works please.

Your right. It's getting annoying watching all these Audi commercials bashing BMW and Mercedes, even though both are better than Audi.

Excatly what planet do you people live on?

It is advertising for Christ's sake. What the hell do you expect them to say.

"Audi, we may not be as good as BMW but we do charge more"

Maybe BMW can have an ad for the 335i that says: "The HPHP will probably fail, but what the hell. nobody's perfect"

Glorified Volkswagons. BFD. Notice how any BMW commercial never tries to compare a BMW to another brand? Ever notice that every magazine article always mentions BMW as the bench mark?

"ignorant fanboys?" Where?

You are on a BMW forum after all.....

I find it hilarious that all the butt-hurt Audiboys obviously can't take a joke. Heaven forbid if someone talks bad about Audi on a BMW forum.

reading through this just reminded me of the Jump for Joy commercial where the guy tries to jump into his Audi and fails...
