So what happened to BMW, all i see now are scenes from the Bourn Ultimatum with VWs driving around (though cool, did not even compare to the BAD ASS filmatic scenes featuring BMWs). Everyone in hollywood has ditched the BMW even the Transporter dropped the 7series for an A8.
My favorite scene in any movie was when the 7 series was introduced to James Bond and he showed how the car was meant to be driven, even from an ericsson mobile phone.
Whats your favorite movie scene featuring a BMW?
also add any information you might have heard of BMWs showing up in future movies.
This year's summer smash action flick starring Bruce Willis, "Live Free or Die Hard." For those of you unfamiliar with the scene, the movie features both Bruce Willis and that computer hacker guy in the E60 5 series and their futile attempt to start up the sedan and get moving. When the paired took out the front headlight section of the car, the car's front air bags deployed. This was then immediately sensed by BMW's onboard telematics computer system, prompting intervention by "BMW Assist."
After pleading their care for assistance (in addition to automatically calling 911 emergency for assistance), BMW Assist started the 5er remotely and both Bruce Willis and cohort were on their merry way!!! This scene appealed to me because it truly underscored the cutting edge technology, safety and convenience features of current generation BMWs. The iconic sports sedan benchmark is also a tour de force technologically speaking. Well done Bruce Willis and BMW! BEST REGARDS ALL!
