Vern -- The rest of the video is coming along slowly but is less "BMW centric" than this one. (i.e., no clips of Nurburg Ring, or driving 150 mph on the Autobahn). Its more of a travelogue of our vacation trip through Europe than a motorsports video. Nonetheless, I'm flattered that you're interested and will post link when complete.

Boothguy -- Thanks for your feedback. Choosing the right soundtrack music is always tough but in this case I took an easy approach. We wanted something upbeat and exuberant to match the emotion of the moment, and Rundgren's song was "in my head" from listening to on it iPod the day before. So I used it without much consideration. I also experimented by fading out the music just before the lyrics and having voiceover hum a few bars and then sing a modified version:

I don't want to work I want to DRIVE IN THE CAR all day
I don't want to play I just want to DRIVE IN THE CAR all day

But, the result was comical and sounded cheesy so I went with the original.
