“Audi has now settled the case out of court though the complete terms have not been released. Both parties are said to have reached the deal amicably and one of the terms was that Audi would charitably support the revitalization of Detroit by contributing to selected social projects.

“In a formal statement, Audi said it has “tremendous respect for Eminem and his works, and likewise for the 'Imported From Detroit' campaign which was created by Chrysler, and certainly Audi would never wish to insult or harm those parties or their fans and customers.”
