I think it is "by" design and I think its working. Audi has been #3 to BMW and MB in the US for quite some time. They have slowly caught up in terms of prestige in the market they want. I work with a lot of people that drive high end cars. There's just as much Audi metal in the garage as BMW and MB. That was not the case 10 years ago when Audi was the poor man's German luxury car. Let's face it, VW owns Audi and if they wanted to ship more cars here they easily could. Audi is doing everything right. There are plenty on the road, but not as flooded as BMW's. When every fifth car on the highway is a 3 or 5 series and then an A5, 6 or 7 goes by it kind of catches your eye.
