Top Gear Season 17 Episode 1 BMW 1M Intro Music

This is the song that was used by Top Gear to introduce the 1M...and if you asked me, I think it's pretty badass! Anyone else thinks it matches the personality of the car?

Yea...I saw that and loved that they used it on Top Gear for the 1M.

All I can remember was Stig listening to a French/male version of some Lady Gaga song while lapping with the 1M.

Still trying to recover from that

Nice find! Think that will have to go on the iPhone. What a great song to play as you take new passengers in the car! Listened to some of their other songs and wasn't as impressed.

They also used it in a review of the SL Black a couple of years ago. Thought it cool then so Shazammed and downloaded it. Sounds great on the HK!

Kick-ass torrent downloads might have the episode. Although, I would never suggest you download it illegally.

Yeah I actually downloaded it and it's on my iPhone...it's part of my fav. playlist and I'm thinking about rocking it as I drive away from the dealer in my new 1M in a couple of weeks lol

Not the best quality, but it works. When you hit 'Play' another window opens. Close that window, go back to the video and skip ahead to 16:50.

Now all we need is a hybrid of the Caddy commercial + TG gig: Sofia Vergara driving the 1///M (sans cupholders LOL) under these tunes.

Nice find, putting it under the iTunes fave car tunes libraryb
