Only In China: Branded Parking Space
November 16th, 2012 10:00 AM Share
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?
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?
