BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and Hyundai?

You know it was only about 5 years ago that I used to still laugh at anyone driving a Lexus, just another Toyota I used to say, just another Toyota, and surely then, it was just another Toyota, made in the same factory with the same parts just in a different shell and some more equipment, the Lexus brand (which if you are interested, stands for Luxury EXport to the United States) was largely ridiculed for trying to compete with the likes of BMW, Mercedes Benz and other European rivals...

Smart Car, Dumb Ad?

Well I find it funny! How could you not? This billboard has been popping up around South Africa the last few days and there has been some resentment from the online community (mostly American of course). American nothing? What a wonderful way of advertising a car! Of course the people at Daimler Chrysler in Germany and America didn't seem to be aware of this ad and about 10 hours after it was shown on the net, Daimler Chrysler (who owns Smart) apologized and is withdrawing the ad...

Nissan Tiida not so sexy

Update: 2010 Nissan Tiida Update: Nissan Tiida Review The Nissan Tiida is not doing that well. Lets face it, its called Tiida! And it has the chick from Sex & The City doing the ads, this alone rules out any single male who values their dignity from buying it, AND, did I mention its called Tiida? Nissan Australia has only sold 1463 Tiidas in the first three months of this year compared with the 4566 Pulsar sales in the same period last year and only now have Nissan realised that perhaps Tiida's advertising campaign wasn't the smartest...
