BMW has come up with an innovative way of undermining arch-rival Audi - by placing a giant billboard above its Hong Kong dealership.

The massive advertisement for the new 5-Series sits on a wall over the showroom windows.

Audi and BMW have a long history of aggressive advertising towards each other, including waging war on billboards in California, points-scoring in European print adverts and, recently, Audi described BMW as "second best" in a primetime television advert.

When I was speaing to one of the salesmen he described audi's choice of front wheel drive by saying " No, you don't want that ! FWD is for gypsys!". I personlly thought that comment was justified. :D
Didnt a recent survey carried out by BMW point out that a large percentage of owners didnt know their where RWD. For 90% of normal drivers there is nothing wrong with FWD, thats the reason the majority of cars today are configured so. The way most people vindicate RWD fun is not the way a sensible and responsible driver should be using their cars on public roads anyway.
