True that. When someone feels that he needs to elevate himself by trashing others (car companies in this case), then all he's got are insecurites about the product & admit that he's only second class. The real men (and women) simply delievers w/o trying to make others look bad.
: During the Masters golf tournament only 2 sponsers run their commericals, Citicorp and Cadillac. I noticed that Cadillac must want to be a German car. During the Masters 56 minutes out of every hour is for golf and the other 4 minutes are for commericals. The Cadillac commericals on Saturday compared their cars to the Lexus once, the Mercedes once and the BMW twice. One of the commericals had a couple of men talking while driving the Seville, and the driver says to his friend, I've been doing the BMW thing for a while, I decided to try Cadillac for a change. I guess they should show these guys in a couple of years when the driver is telling his friend how pissed off he is because his Cadillac has spent so much time in the garage and how his Cadillac lost so much of it's trade in value. Then tell how the driver went back to driving a BMW and lived happily ever after. Sorry, I just had to vent. These American made luxury cars are not worthy to be compared to the Merceds, Lexus or especially the BMW.
