This little jab could backfire quickly.

Before I read the caption, my first thought was that you were showing us a social media troll post, and the image was suggesting that BMW could not outdo their rival so they decided to start purchasing Mercedes vehicles and putting their own sheetmetal over the top of them.

Exactly, when I first saw it I initially thought car was just a FWD Merc masquerading as a BMW...

Or perhaps you need to buy one of these if you get the upcoming M3/M4 cars.

I don't like that idea either... Merc could easily fire back by stating this:

BMW needs no disguise to be perceived as a horrific monster with its latest design language

Should be the other way around with a C class covering up the grilles of the new 4er.

I remember the days when BMW had some of the best advertising in the biz; It appears those days are over.

Amusing for sure!

But both of these cars have one of the worst resale values in the car industry.

But good jabs none the less.

Is there a reason why they would not use E63S vs M5?

Just curious why they would compare "Amg" E43/53 vs full on M5.

All I read from this was MB trolling BMW with all their designs are just imitations of the MB line up.

Honestly this is a more fitting ad for the "Spoooky season!"
