@TDR looks that your own IQ is even smaller, and knowledge about tech even smaller...

For the sheep of the world, i'm sure this a great, great read...........but if you still have passion and flair - buy something that doesn't dominate the roads like these rep vehicles - all now seemingly from Germany - I know its economics - but Fritz has flooded the corporate market, gone are the days of exclusivity with the BMW's, Merc's and Audi's - you would probably get more looks driving a Ford these days - at least they look different :)

This Audi/BMW saga is getting old. I will simply say this. Audi fan or not, you simply have to give credit to BMW for pulling off the successes they have had in the past decade without a parent company bankrolling their successes like VW has done for Audi. Audi is sitting nice and snug under that VW umbrella. Come back when Audi is independent of VW. For the time being VW will keep pumping money into Audi to try and usurp BMW. I have massive respect for Audi as a brand but give credit where credit is due. BMW thoroughly deserve the praise and respect.

Another pointless list. What do they mean by 'most powerful'? Money, innovation what?

BMW are for people who show off, and Audi's every single model in its lineup humiliates them. Don't even think about the R8, because BMW a so lazy that they don't even have a supercar!

BMW has alot of wealth in the family on top of the car business. It is able to afford Mega R&D on carbon fiber tech etc. A few years back even GM was trying to buy BMW engines in trying to catch up with the pack. When BMW talks people listen, look how everyone adopted their iDrive as an example. EV's are struggling but with the i3 arriving etc, all that might change. BMW will be the game changer!
