Taxi has quite a few BMW car chase scenes...

I also think this thread is better suited for the off topic section.

The Transporter: e38 of some sort (735i? 730i?)

Here's a link that lists over a hundred Bimmers in movies. It even indexes them by model. :thumbup:

Gone in 60 Seconds -- e39 (540iA) used by the police to chase Cage's Mustang

The Score -- De Niro drove an e31 (840?).

Paycheck has a BMW motorcycle of some sort and bunch of bimmers sitting in a dealer lot.

Sorry, don't know my bikes very well :(

A chase scene on a beemer in Tomorrow Nevr Dies, and the infamous 740 in... was that Tomorrow Never Dies, too? They all blur... Angela has a white E36 in American Beauty.

In "The Last Run" with George C Scott (great movie, btw, it's from the early 70's) there are some shots with a mounted camera at speed while Scott drives a mountain pass at high speed.

The camera is pointing right at the right rear tire/wheel of the 503 convertible. Here you can see clearly, what positive camber is all about and why it's so potentially deadly.

Also, in these same scenes, there's lots of tire distortion as the slip angles build up.

Fun stuff....

I think Frasier drove a 5-series.

In the last season or two, he upgraded to a new 7.

While surfing the other night, I saw that Bernie Mac drives an M3 cab.

The Chase

The whole movie was shot in a red E36 325 coupe

Glen Gary Glen Ross...

Alec Baldwin has a red 850Ci...including his famous monologue that goes something like "I drove a BMW to work drove a Hyundai...thats the difference between us..."

Spiderman 2 actually had an E36 and E46. You only catch a 2 second glimpse, but that's more than enough.

JPinTO 07-12-2004 12:52 PM

Attack of the clones: E65.

6i9 07-12-2004 02:14 PM

I find it hard to believe a 7 series made an appearance in a damn Star Wars movie...

My middle son just rented "The Transporter" for me; if I recall correctly, it was a 735i.

Oh, it was enough to make a Bimmerphile weep; you see The Transporter (can you say, "The Hire"? :D ) washing his lovely Bimmer (doubtless with Meguiar's Car Shampoo :p )- and later the bad guy blows the man's Bimmer up! :mad: - oh, that hurt!

I think a Mary J. Blige video (and the only reason I know about this is because I was shopping with a son in a 'hip-hop' clothing store) features a black 745i??????
