That video is really bad, and funny at the same time. The driving scenes are actually an interesting perspective.

Albania and odd non sequiturs aside, I, for one, was dutifully amused. And, never forget, the early buzzard gets the roadkill.

for a really different vid.

That's the first video I've seen with a Terra interior. Looks nice.

That video made me laugh so hard. That seemed really akward. But the driving scenes were great!

Nice to see that they got a car with New Jersey plates all the way to Albania. Not to mention the american street signs.

Uh, what did I just watch? This vid was hilariously awkward, but I guess it did the job and made me curious enough to visit a website that would post this stuff. There's a written review as well:

http://www.carbuzzard.com/review.php?id=21581

He's more amusing in print. "Hit the brakes and there’s as much drama as an Akron, Ohio, Saturday night"

Also, it's interesting that they note that the price point of the 135 is proportional to the 2002 when it was on the market.

I think that was a great video and review on the website by an independant reviewer. I would trust his thoughts over some groomed up well spoken hack.

What an entertaining review. Had a great laugh. Love the part where he describes the air intake: "......the air goes to the air cleaner then down then to the tubes in the back...."

The best part is when the blue 135i drives past and honks...

Looks like this film was taken in Cali at that press event.

If that was another 135i that honked then we've got the answer to our horn question on another thread.

If this was filmed during the press event maybe BMW should reconsider the "Free Beer" policy during the day. At least we got another chance to hear the exhaust and also the intake while driving. To be fair though, this was obviously filmed during the writers strike !
