    as expensive as

    Hello!

    1.Opel is not as expensive as BMW.
    2.Opel is not as expensive as BMW is.

    I know that the first sentence is correct. What about the second?

    Re: as expensive as

    That sounds to me as if you are talking about the value/cost of the whole company. I would use "Opels are not as expensive as BMWs" or "An Opel is not as expensive as a BMW".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In context, it would work in AmE.
