all these affordable cars from luxury brands where 10 years ago you couldn't afford a new car unless you were well off are ruining their brands exclusivity. you think some dude who just about an s8 wants to have some snot nosed kid out of uni with the a1 on lease pulling up beside them on a stop light and having that brat think you're both on the same level because you share the same brand of cars? get a grip.
yeah but it's making sense for the brand these days. People still want the prestigious title of Audi or lexus, but they don't have the cash. They are just capitalizing on it. The one that I don't get is mercedes putting out those tiny little shitbox cars in europe. They must be devaluing the brand.
Anyone who buys a base luxury car for the most part ( not all circumstances) is a fucking tool. They buy those cars just to say they have a bmw or benz or whatever. Base luxury cars generally suck unless you spend a decent amount on one if you want a small car which run upwards of 40g's. Any boss who buys a luxury car knows that you gotta buy atelast like a lexus g or 5 series to be respected, if thats the image you even want.
thats what i'm saying. its about as bad as buying a used luxury 5er or e class. ain't foolin no one. its mad peasant. might as well buy a non-luxury car with all the add-ons then a bmw or mercedes base with the barebones for the same prices. its like those kids i see downtown in sardine can condos for 1200 a month when they could have lived a bit more uptown in a much bigger apartment. some people are just vain and would rather sacrifice value to satisfy their narcissism.
