They definetly have a strong enough brand to move in different directions with their advertising and product lines.

Good points, and I actually think this particular ad shows a move away from technology. Regardless of what they’re trying to achieve, they certainly have turned heads. They also run the same ad with Patrick Stewart (of Star Trek fame) doing voice-over.

I was making a different off-post comment in some ways. I think BMW are absolutely superb at being a whole range of things to different people, even keeping a core tech customer base happy while consciously feminising their product range and customer service.

I always think of cars/metal/technology when I consider BMW ads. With this ad I feel it’s suddenly all about lifestyle and emotion. I know they always stressed lifestyle, but this is the first time I’ve equated BMW with personality.

Thanks for dropping by, rgds
