A tongue in cheek ad. But not politically very correct, I am afraid.

Points deducted from BMW. Wouldn't expect BMW to have to do this to sell second hand Bimmers.

+1. This a very cheeky Ad. It would have worked with a cheeky brand like the Mini or something but not for the Ultimate Driving Machine

If its for the European/US market I think its quite acceptable, not sure if it will go down well in the Indian market.

Somehow I get the feeling that this isnt a REAL BMW ad. It seems to be someone very creative who has just made an ad using BMW's name.

This is an old (2008) ad. The tagline was "you know you're not the first".

The pic above has a second line of text which I believe wasn't there in the ad.
