Jackboot tactics

I’ve just heard a Volkswagen radio ad that struck me as offensive. It targeted, specifically, small business by offering to match any written quote by an independent local garage for servicing a used VW. ‘Local’ is defined as within five miles of their nearest service base, and of course ‘terms and conditions’ apply, for example, there’s an upper limit of two litres on engine capacity. (Henceforth anyone thinking about  buying a Volkswagen with a bigger engine should bear in mind that the manufacturer doesn’t fancy it too much.)

To me that is straightforward bullying, but that’s the way the Germans behave in the EU, (ve vill not talk about ze var) so why should I be surprised?
