Thank YOU Scott26. I am anxious to see this footage. I have a 2000 323CI that I need to replace. This 135i came and the perfect time!

However my source says it was an Audi shoot. Is BMW sneaky enough to officially shoot their pics under "Audi"?
Is it just me, or does this set (apparently for the Audi R8) have a lot in common (look and feel) with the old fashioned gas pumps beside which the latest 1er coupe was spied? Coincidence? Just trying to put 3 and 3 together... Not yet adding up to 6, though...

Sharp eyes usual.
It feels very similar to the 1-er spy shot.
This looks like a film still-perhaps from an upcoming Audi commercial?
I can imagine an Auto Union race car from pre-back-in-the-day also fitting into this scenario. & then, of course, we'll get the magic tranformation into now...right?
Roadside bomb/carnage/critics who say the R8 shouldn't have gone into production w.out additional body armour.

So the deal here with the 1-er shot in the desert and the R8 old-timey race is back to the future because the present is rather uncomfortable?
Or is this just good ol' nostalgia for a past that never existed?
