Talking What Is Your Favorite Bmw Movie Scene?

I feel old even though im still a teenager, What im talking about are The good ol' days around when I was ten and James bond was driving a 7 series using his cell phone as a remote control, The Z3, and the biggest crime to happen to a BMW in the movies the Z8 that was sawed right down the middle. 007, Give Daniel Craig an M5!

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.

I gotta say the intro getaway scene from the first transporter. Completely awesome. I like that 007 one too, but it was stupid that they gave it an automated voice for comic relief. Good stuff if you ignore that!

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!

Don't forget the final scene of Live Free or Die Hard where Bruce Willis shot Timothy Oliphaunt (or however you spell that) through his own shoulder and Timothy fell on the silver seven series with the AC wheels (looked nice with the wheels)

I dunno about movie scene, but I really like the commercial that talks about the history of the 3 (We didn't set to be a get-away car, or a pop culture or...)

That is my favorite of the bmwfilms as well. As far as a movie goes i'm thinking that Ronin has a pretty good chase with a BMW.
