But BMW has won boatloads of touring car championships: WTCC, BTCC, ALMS, etc., and Audi has won very few, if any.

And those cars are much closer to street cars than the Audis that have won Le Mans... Tell those people to chew on that.

As far as brand is concerned, I know Audi can't compete with BMW. But performance only, are Audi's really better cars than BMW's?

Look at all the magazine reviews around the world... BMWs set the standard. They're the benchmark.

Maybe when you compare 3ers to A4, 5ers to A6, 7ers to A8, BMW are better but Audi has more higher end cars that BMW just can't compete with?
More higher end cars? Audi just has the R8, huh?
