An Audi dealer once told me that I couldn't get the car that I wanted because it was in too much demand and they had limited supply. My response was, "why are you treating a problem as a benefit, and why are you making your problem my problem?". Then I bought another BMW.
Audi is making a very good product. But I think their business model is broken.
VWs goal to be largest production appear to be counter intuitive based on their production/pricing strategy. I do suspect that their growth strategy though will be focused in China to achieve number 1 status. I like your approach why are you making your problem my problem, lol. Which is what I did as well. I bought a 550...
