    Anyone could see that press release coming... make some "hay" whilst the shite affects other marques.

    It's corporate human nature.

    Not quite sure about the "shite affects other marques" sentiment.. Self inflicted pain perhaps?

    It's not "corporate human nature", it's good business acumen. Why wouldn't you capitalize on a competitors weakness as a result of poor managerial decision making? You'd be crazy not to.

    It certainly displays a far more promotable, sustainable and ethical corporate nature than that evident within the VAG..

    I tend agree and perception is part of the "sales battle" won. But the press release is opportunistic self promotion as well.

    I would suggest ANY press release that wasn't self promotion would result in a change of personnel in the publicity department.

    Couldn't have said it better myself John. It's purely business at work.

    I'm sure PSA shareholders are happier with this press release than their VAG counterparts..

    Hi
    Off the topic a bit but this discussion reminds me of the way Iphone people continue to promote their phone for their masters every time they post (and do other things).
    I would demand a cut from them for the advertising on MY USAGE.
