lol. This would be a cool stunt if they actually got someone to drive a 135i off the ramp... at full speed. Where is Evil K when you need him?

I want to see them do it. No C.G., the real deal.

BTW, there are like 3,000 135's here, but Japan doesn't have so much space, so they stack them.

It'd be funny to watch, but I am a little hesitant too to think they'd actually do it.

Ugly. Really. I think it's acceptable in black, but that's about it. It has the feeling of planned obsoletion that most BMW models have pre-facelift (like the 5er for instance; ugly before facelift, good looking after). The rear isn't too bad. The faux diffuser looks good, and the akward trunk-lid-meets-shoulder-line above the taillights isn't as bad as I thought it would be. The character line runs way too high on the shoulder, and it's too straight, and the greenhouse is too bubbly.

It looks "plump". Usually I believe that BMW's and many other makes tend to have better looking products in real life. Not so much this time. The hood lines look dated too. Every line on the car is sharply creased, but the hood lines look so...e46ish...if you know what I mean. The side suffers from the drooping door creases. I don't even know if that will change in the facelift considering that it's not a part of the rocker panels. The wheels were...well I'm gonna be honest...4 out of 5 times I think stock BMW wheels look plain as vanilla (exceptions include X5 ZSP, 650i ZSP, 550i ZSP, and e92 335i ZSP). This happens to be the case too unfortunately.

A good set of wheels, a drop, some eyelids, a rear deck spoiler lip (available from the factory on the M-Sport equipped ones), and an aftermarket Vorsteiner hood (or something of the like) would make this look much, much better.

And here is the blog for the ramp "filmmaker": http://jeffschultz.wordpress.com/
I think that's a cool idea, but a bit excessive.
