Definitely looks like another viral video.

And the camera car was most certainly an E46 M3. You can see the distinct M3 side mirror at 00:06 in the second video.

Unless of course that person installed M3 mirrors on a non-M3 (which is quite possible).

Notice that we never see a shot of the IP (speedo in particular ; -) on the chase car, and that black van seems to be a big part of both vids. So if it is a viral vid - take it with a B-I-G grain of salt. :biggrin:

I have my doubts that it is a BMW viral ploy. Regardless its working with me.

Check out his other vids.

Definately an E46 M3.

UPDATE: It was not an M3, but a 323i with M3 mirrors.
Here's a vid of the guy's car:

Sorry guys- it was frustrating to watch.
The best thing...how freakin' bright the led tailights are when the 1-er driver hit the brakes.

Great vid, definitely not an M3 chasing though. You can tell by his rear view mirror. Either way, the acceleration of that lil guy looks great as does the braking.

Love the wheel wells on the 1er coupe, they're flared perfectly.

Not necessarily. M3s with Assist get the rectangular mirror rather than the oval M mirror.

Moot point anyway, as it's been confirmed that it's a 323ci with M3 side mirrors.

I can't figure out why he doesn't have an anthracite headliner.

Anthracite headliner is an option in Europe.
