Lol!! I just noticed the exact same thing! Right when the show started, I was like... He's talking about how the slightest error going 150 mph on the autobahn would be catastrophic... And he's not wearing his seatbelt! Lol!

Not that a seatbelt would help much if you piled up your car doing a buck fifty but still... At least put it on for good measure

Classic.

Well, I see the show lived up to my expectations. Mainstream cable "news"--yawn.

least informative 'documentary' i think i've ever seen. Loved the reaction from the sound designer when he was told the notification sounds could be made in 10 minutes.

Carl Quintanilla, what a douche.

Absolutely completely disagree. I thought he was perfect, I loved him.
He brought a light side to contrast the serious boring German side.

Who cares about Rolls Royce. I tuned in to see BMWs. The part about design was cool. No M, except for the X5M they crashed. WTF.

CNBC Fail!

I did like seeing the ED process again, it never gets old! You definitely feel like you're drinking the KoolAid when you're at the Welt. I think its worked on my wife, she wants a 5er or an X5 as her next car and would do ED or PCD again!

I too am unhappy with the show. I was so looking forward to it and CNBC could have done a much better job. Without commercials they probably had no more than 50 minutes of air time. The fact that they spend almost 20% of the show on the chimes the car makes is quite depressing. Not to mention the fact they also spent nearly half of the show talking about Rolls Royce and Mini.

I found it funny that they mentioned Bespoke Rolls Royce but didn't even mention BMW Individual. Very dissapointed.

+1000000! They could have spent that time on the M division instead. M is for the people who really have a driving obsession.

Nothing about any of the enthusiasm or M cars. Pretty week other than a start from scratch introduction to BMW.

I agree with some of the criticisms. However, the two people at the reception desk for the VIP ED lounge were the same 2 people I worked with 9 weeks ago. I thought that was kind of cool.

It wasn't a documentary.
