Big M3 advertisement at SFO

On my way back from a business trip (combined with some vacation as well), and with the thoughts of my up close meeting with an M3 at a dealer in Frankfurt, I see this at San Francisco International Airport (United domestic terminal area). The ads are coming! Should be very soon when we will see the magazine advertising campaign as well. It was cool to see this huge ad (about 7' x 11' or so), but not the best slogan nor picture IMHO.

Seems to be an appropriate slogan for an advertisement in an airport, imho.

Nope, the only time I was really stationary was near the Sushi and Burger joints in the United Domestic terminal, not sure of the terminal number. Did you see the advert?

If anyone is going through O'Hare anytime soon then they will see two very large M3 adds. One is a AW coupe and the other is a space gray sedan... They are stunninly gorgeous! It was around 6:45 in the morning yesterday when I saw them but hell, that woke me up!!!!

I've been seeing these pictures in magazine ads since last week. Not a fan of the 18" wheels but to each their own. And it looks like the alpine white is the official color for the ads thus far. I also agree the picture is not very flattering to the new M3. I've seen much better.

Probably this image is from a Europe car, and in Europe we donīt have the reflectors in the front and rear bumpers.

Yes, but he is referring to this being a US advertisement. It should show the US version of the car.
