Need Red 2011 M3 coupe for TV's "The Car Show"

My friend works on that new tv show called Car Show with hosts Adam Corolla, John Salley, Matt Farah, and some old white dude named Dan. They need a Red 2011 M3 coupe for some track shots this week. Please read below and let me know ASAP.


"I need help finding a car for a shoot. My producers are trying to throw shoots together this week for Car Show. We shot a bit with a 2011 M3 coupe (red, Automatic) and need to do pick-up shots at Willow with it. So we need one for Weds or Thurs. It has to be that brilliant red with the DSG transmission. Do you know anyone?

The owner would get some free track time, but the car has to be stock. Sorry to throw this at you, I just need help. I'll pay you in BBQ. Thanks. "

You better post what's going to be done to the car, and who's going to do the driving. I wouldn't let anybody touch my car, but curious what others do just to see their car on TV .

Maybe I am misunderstanding, but I would think that if they are trying to get a car that looks identical to the one they shot earlier, then we need to know what wheels it had (219M, 220M, 359M). And if interior shots are part of the plan, major options (iDrive, premium sound) and interior color and trim type would be important too.

Not that surprising. It's a terrible show.

It's better than american Top Gear, but that's not saying alot... some lame segments but they've had some gems. I still doubt this is real since Carolla has quite a following on his podcasts and I'd think he could scare up a car without our help.

The Car Show is pretty good as far as american car shows geared towards modern cars go.

This is interesting... I actually like The Car Show, it's different than American Top Gear. It's like a pod-cast but in TV form. Obviously, nothing can touch UK Top Gear but nothing American can come close to BBC quality in the first place.

I live on the East Coast and drive a MW DCT, otherwise I'd let you use it just to hang out with the guys. I used to talk to Matt on finalgear.com until he said he thought the Z4M Coupe was ugly

Maybe because they'd have to actually talk to a woman about something besides breasts or pr0n?

You'd think with over 300 million people in this country, the power of Hollywood, and endless resources, they could come up with some better hosts on American Top Gear.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
