Yeah. He did it again in the "quarter million" Rolls.

So I just finished watching it for the second time, and fair to say that my favorite part still stands the crashing of an X5 M (which by the way is such a sad excuse of an M). Anyway, made me feel like it finally got what it deserved. 2999 more to go.

The documentary was:

1. Underwhelming (at best)
2. Lacked in details and depth
3. Failed to even mention anything about the M division
4. Portrays BMW owners as 65 year old dentists (ED couple)
5. Missed such an epic opportunity in garnering unique interest in the brand
6. Was very much hurt by the choice of host. That guy definitely drives an Audi


Anyone else think this "documentary" (infomercial) was part of a settlement between BMW and CNBC, following all the bad publicity CNBC inflicted on the brand, following the HPFP debacle news piece?
