BMW's stab back at MB

Gotta love them for trying. They're just unhappy about the iDrive comment from before! lol

The ad translates into: A Mercedes can also bring driving pleasure...

Change the caption to:

BMWs being shipped back to the factory for warranty repairs...

That's actually quite funny! I like it.
With all the percieved MB quality issues maybe BMW smells blood. But then again that 7 series will soon correct some of their smugness.

Hey hey now, I didn't put this up so you could all start bashing bimmers. I like Benzies (and hate the new 7 for that matter) as much as the next guy, but the classic bimmer will always be my car. Most of the other bimmers out there are wonderful cars, and I was hoping I could post this ad without leading to a bashing of BMW - glad some of you enjoyed it at least. New Mercedes have mechanical flaws just like the new bimmers (granted that styling of new models are not one of them). I'll stick with my 16 year old 5-speed Roundel and be happy. Happy new year!

BTW: I'm not actually being serious guys - I didn't expect no resistance after posting this on a mercedes board... lol

Okay, here's another tongue-in-cheek caption:

A typical morning routine for a truck driver performing his duties as part of the BMW Motorist Assistance program... :p

They couldn't get all the bimmers to work on the first try, so they had to ferry them around on a Mercedes
