BMW vs. Audi ads are back!! now in Hong Kong...



From WorldCarFans:

Things are heating up in the advertising battle between BMW and Audi.

In this latest offensive, BMW has purchased a huge ad space on a billboard directly above Audi of Hong Kong. A massive advertisement for the new 5-Series sits on a wall over the showroom windows, all but completely displacing the Audi dealership from view.

The ad war between the two German premium brands began a while ago, with competing billboards in California and repeated jabs at each other in European print ads. Lately, the campaign escalated when Audi aired a commercial in the U.S. during the Olympics which referred to BMW as "second best".

Now, the next move is up to Audi. But what they may want to do first is figure out who's fault it is for allowing the billboard space above its Hong Kong dealership to be purchased by the competition.

What's the point? Doesn't Audi know that BMW is superior?

Great ad placement.

I bet people won't be able to tell the difference between them two, thinking they've purchased a BMW at the Audi-dealer or vice versa (just as 80% of the 1er owners thought their car was FWD).

those 1 series owners are good sports in all fairness

BMW seems to be winning in the ad war imho.... just for the record.
