  1. The PH government should reduce the tax on cars. And BMW, Audi, and the others should reduce the cost of ownership and increase the warranty period. 2 years warranty for a multi million car, seriously?

    1. The first point depends on the government.....but the second point regarding about reducing the cost of ownership might not be possible because of the premium position that these Big 3 German luxury car brands enjoy. Parts and labor will always be expensive. Then for the second point, the warranty for BMW Philippines is 2 years BUT Unlimited Mileage within the said two-year period. Hence this is similar to what most Eurocar owners in the PH do:
      They drive a lot of mileage within that period.

      Also BMW, Audi and MB are premium manufacturers, they are not mass-market. It is more about uniqueness and exclusivity and less about massive sales volumes that will dilute their brand equity.
