Audi commercials are REALLY making me laugh...

... and kinda pissing me off too.

They're trying to say they're so much better than BMW based on ONE magazines comparison of their new models vs. an aging BMW models? Give me a break.

Last time I checked there were more BMW enthusiasts out there than Audi fans.

I sat in an S4 last Saturday and it really felt lower quality than my sister's jeep liberty.

"I was told it captures my essence"

Well, I was told that glittery LED running lights were all that matter during the holidays.

I'm not going to say I don't like Audi's cars, they make great cars. but they really do try to push the fact that they are better then BMW, which I don't believe for a minute.

I know.

I just saw another one of their commercials...

I just don't know how to feel about them... Laugh or get mad.

I have an idea! I'll prove them wrong by voting with my wallet. Oh wait, I already have.

Being the benchmark, BMW will be the target for many car companies.
Statements such as "As good as a BMW," or "Better than a BMW," are commonplace.
You never hear of any car manufacturer spouting off "As good as/better than an Audi".

I completely agree. It's like steakhouses who compare themselves to Peter Luger's.

The only think that we need to know about Audi is that they sell less vehicles as a brand than the 3-Series alone.

Nothing actually. But thanks for caring. I was being sarcastic.

The steering wheel in the S4 felt like rubber. It didn't feel like leather. The seats didn't feel like leather. All the controls felt cheap. I dunno. It just felt like a cheap car. Yes I was being SARCASTIC when I said the S4s interior felt lower quality than my sister's 2010 Liberty, but it didn't make you feel like you were sitting in a $55k car. If I was blind-folded, I would have guessed I was sitting in a $40,000 car, MAX.

Audi has the best interiors? That's an opinion. Just like mine. But I'm not going to say your smoking something because I respect other peoples opinions.

Good God I miss Peter Luger's. As much as anyone tries, they cannot be topped or imitated. Got to get back to NY this year.

On topic, this is a BMW board, so we must love BMWs at all costs. If this was an AUDI board, we would love our AUDIs at all cost......Steve

Agreed.....that would be a hell of a road trip for us. MN is a long drive but if you put something together in the Summer that might work......Steve

What a sick idea!! After Lugers, we'd all have to slide the seats back a few inches. I'm sure a lot a guys would be in too.

Thanks man! Yeah, it's probably time I changed my vehicle on my avatar. I LOVE my 35d. Multi-Contour seats are the best.

I was going to order an 335i xDrive, and actually did, but the dealer sold it to someone else after I ordered the X5.

I can't wait till ///M time. As soon as I have a build date I'm scheduling a Performance Center delivery
