    MERC – 18,507 now 31,556 – up 70%
    AUDI – 6,406 now 19,264 – up 300%

      Finally customers have realized that bmw is the only useless brand in the world. W’re so glad. And this year Mercedes will retake the sales champ crown from idiotic bmw, and the justice will prevail. We’ll continue to open your eyes, bewildered customers, so that You won’t waste Your valuable time and money on that rubbish brand called bmw.

        Yes, our hard work here and other forums finally yields positive results. I just hope that bmw will get bankrupt soon, and we won’t see those idiotic cars in the streets anymore.

      It won’t help pathetic bmw. Mercedes is head and shoulders above bmw in everything, so just live with it.

        As BMW have been #1 premium brand most of this century, I guess you guys can’t leave your houses for fear of seeing another one, thus you have so much time to type. #bmwagoraphobia. Seek help!

        • Jonathan Oshea says:

          bmw is #1 loser premium brand now, since customers have finally realized that so far they’ve been paying lots of money for an absolute crap like 3, 5, 7 and other idiotic series. So the justice prevails once again, i.e. Mercedes-Benz is at the top of the premium market. So go hang yourself, faggot.

    • guest says:

      Or, they just need to follow Mercedes down market for volume, which thus far they have been reluctant to do, supposedly the new 1 Series sedan is for China only. Since the brand is still worth more than M-B (2nd only to Toyota, despite being a much smaller co.) & are doing record global sales for their centennial, don’t think they have much to worry about. BMW have invested in electric & hybrid, Mercedes fwd. ICE compacts, when oil goes back up their market positions should again reverse, particularly if M-B’s electric pants are still around their ankles. Let’s hope they don’t have to bend over too much!

      Of course. Who would want to drive a car (bmw) which is only for gays and idiots?

    Expected as BMW has alienated their core principals and turned the M brand into just another marketing tool for increasing profits.
