Looks like BMW is rolling out some new electronic goodies but I have no idea what the FCUK they are. They do like like a new DVD/CD player, camera, USB Hub, and more.

Who knows!?!?

what they are trying to show you is it is the new m3. It moves so fast you cannot keep up with it.

even if that was a joke, i think thats ACTUALLY what they are really trying to convey, the product is obviously fake, so u might be right in your analysis

i never would have got it

Nah, i dont think so. If that was the case that would be a whole new marketing strategy for any of their cars.

In their teaser video, the text says:
Quote:
USB connection
MP3 player
DVD/CD drive
Bluetooth interface
LCD colour display with 65,000 colours
Voice recognition
High processor performance
Low energy consumption
Recharges itself

What is your idea of joy?

Anticipation on approach
Online as of mid-January 2007.
My guess? The brand new removable and portable: iDrive 3000.

no actuall photos (those definatly are not real) even though its suposed to be something sold, well, pretty much right now

combined with the unrealistic specifications

what i meant by thinking his analysis was correct was the idea of creating something that makes a leap in tech


also the whole premise is a product that seems pretty incredible and builds anticipation the closer it gets

idk

The portable idrive sounds good (and could very well be the case). But I like to think that it has more to do with the anticipation of the m3:rocks:

But the Mid January 2007 might means that it might not be the m3 (too early for the m3 to come out). But you never know. One might show up at the next detroit auto show.

Could be a new Hybrid Car, New M3 or something new and awesome in a new car?
