BMW has a cult following in Russia, may be bit less the Merc which is the daddy still, but bimmers even had 2 high budget (in russian terms) films about them. LIke with story line that wasnt too bad and had some real meaning to it (like some idiot can fack up lives of all people around him by just being stupid and getting cought up in wrong shit).
Looking at this, I actually think this is not so hard to do. Just lots of money and time spent.
