To quote one of my friends..

"Imagine all the macho engineers who slogged on the audi and bmw and gloated over their ad campaigns until Subaru showed they had no knickers."

Default Billboards War: BMW vs. Audi

BMW and Audi are dueling again, but this time, onto the “marketing battle field”. And what would be the best place to do so other than the one of the top states when it comes to car luxury sales: California.

In Santa Monica, Audi has put up some billboards showing the all new Audi A4 along with the headline: “Your move, BMW”. BMW took on the challenge and entered a virtual chess game ….of course, with cars rather than pons, kings or queens.

Moreover, it’s all fun in the end.

ROFL!!! The tag line are just too wonderful! A very healthy set!

This is advertising competition at its best!

Subaru got the better of both of them!

I usually think competitive advertising is tasteless and cheap - but the BMW "checkmate" is just brilliant. Theres no coming back from that one!

How about a Honda City vs Fiat Linea ad campaign like this?
Would be exciting to watch.
