Audi drivers are the new BMW drivers — 11 Comments

  1. I used to drive Audis in the 90‘’s after the excellent advert of the (braces wearing) City spiv handing the cars back to the dealer saying ‘nah! Not my style’. I had an A4 than an A6 then an A3. All excellent cars.
    Basically they are all Volkswagens, albeit with tweaks – Audi, VW, Seat, Skoda.

    Something did change in the noughties. Volvo drivers were always (and remain) the worst, while Audi definitely took over the mantle of most aggressive from BMW. I think the face style change to the goatee may have had something to do with it.

    You can still get basically the same car for a lot less money and without the same aggressive connotation by going to Skoda. The dealers are much nicer and cheaper, too.

  2. But if I wanted a well made car with high reliability and a long warranty surely I’d buy a Korean or Japanese model? The days when German cars were better built than their competitors were surely a generation ago.

    And while I am on the subject: my most recent trip in a BMW, and ditto a Merc, were uncomfortable – lack of room, both headroom and leg room. Duds.

    • I have a Ssangyong Korando and really love it. Very much a middle aged persons car, very versatile and practical. Acres of legroom in the back as well. Vinnie Jones is advertising them on the telly I notice.

  3. On a purely personal level, I’d say that Mercedes drivers seem to be slightly worse than either Audi or BMW drivers – but the true sphincters are Prius drivers.

    (Other dual-fuel/electric drivers don’t seem to be nearly so bad.)
