Nice succession of adds, if they are all true.
I'd like to see other auto manufactures copy BMW and create some good short films subtly highlighting their cars. One can only watch Ronin so many times.

The only reason Bentley won is because Audi sat out that year. the R8 OWNS LeMans. Im not even gonna mention the R10 which pretty much embarrassed everyone else at LeMans. A Diesel won LeMans LMFAO!!!

considering that bentley is owned by the vw/audi group, and is powered by a vw/audi designed motor I doubt that reliability is as much of a concern as you make it out to be.

Yes, Audi has done very well at LeMans -- in the absence of Porsche. Very interesting how Piech -- Ferry's nephew and racing director for Porsche in the 60s and 70s -- had a chat with Porsche's management and they decided to stop competing at the highest levels for a few years.

You hold the "winner" title up until the day of the next years race. Winning in 2005 would make these claims correct through much of 2006, until the next race.

Bentley only won Le Mans because the Bentley LM Car was in fact an R8 in drag, the same engineers that developed the R8 also developed the Bentley. Hence why Audi sat out :-)

...Ok. So far we've established that people are a bunch of "maroons" for not knowing that VAG owns Lambo, because everything else about it has been covered so far.

We've also been enlightened about the fact that between 2000 and 2006 there were 7 races. Thanks, mates. We've all failed basic math, along with the people that make $150,000 a year coming up with these ads. You, gentlemen, have noticed that which hundreds of executives just happened to miss. Please. Write them a letter, they'll fix it. I promise.

Since the Audi ad is geared towards BMW, then using the 2003 win by Bentley is completely justified. But thanks to all you fine young lads for establishing the fact that Bentley is affiliated with VAG, but its win doesn't count, because that screws up the math in the ad. And if the ad isn't messed up, then it can't be real, and therefore funny.

And to those of you debating the comfort and reliability of a Bentley...Please tell me what justifies you even commenting about one, when you probably drive an '89 CRX.

Arguing over the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics. It really doesn't matter whether you win or lose, you're still a retard.

Cheers.

Even though AUDI is about the most reliable engine in the world (for the long haul) you are still ignoring that american made cars dont even come close to meeting the emissions standards of the europeans. If we got rid of ALL american SUV's and cars we would have much less of an envirnomental and oil crisis

You completely missed the point all the other commenters were making.

However, they were NOT trying to point out marketing flaws.

Uhm... once a year? Good luck with getting detroit muscle to last on that. Every 3 months or 3,000 miles is what is recommended.
