Only In China: Branded Parking Space

only in china branded parking space

Some of you may remember the “No Audi” signs at U.S. parking garages at the height of the unintended acceleration craze of the late 80s. In a garage in China, one can see the reverse: Only Audis, other cars go elsewhere.

The Audi-only parking was seen by Carnewschina seen in the gigantic underground parking of Terminal 3 at Beijing Capital Airport. According to a guard the owner of the lot does some revenue-enhancement with branded parking space. BMW and Benz will be next. Chery or Geely, move on.

(If I would have suggested something like this in Wolfsburg, I would have been declared insane.)

    I`ll slap "the 4 rings" on a Yema F16 and park it there too. They won`t know the difference.

    Must make it easier for the thieves when you have a big gigantic sign that says: "Rob here".

    Don't the unionized auto plants in America also have segregated paring lots for union-made caras (ie. domestics) and non-union cars?

      I know of several Detroit 3 facilities that give preferred parking to their own specific products, not necessarily UAW/CAW assembled though. I could see that at a UAW/CAW hall, but I've never actually been in one.

    The description read "reserved parking for Audi owners". Can someone park a Lexus there, if he also owns an Audi? Shouldn't it read "reserved parking for Audi" instead?
