I`ve been scouring the `net, but can`t locate my favorite E46 commercial....IIRC, it was for CPO cars, and the prospective buyer had a silver-grey ZHP sedan on a back road, where it looked like he was doing about 70. All of a sudden, the signs started appearing...."Bridge Out Ahead 3 miles", Bridge Out Ahead 2 miles", you get the picture....after zooming past the last warning sign with no indication of letting off the throttle, the salesman looked like he was about to download in his pants. At the last possible second, the driver nailed the brakes, bringing the car to a dramatic stop a few feet from disaster.
Very effective ad.....too bad it`s not around anymore....

Yep, love that ZHP commercial. I remember seeing it during an NFL break years back. I fell off my couch laughing.

Love the E46 M3 CSL, unfortunately we never got it here for consumers in the US . Closest we got is the E46 M3 Competition Edition. I almost got 1 a year ago but got put off cuz it was an SMG; didn't want the headache even though the car only had 30K for an 06.

Fun fact about the CSL: It had fairly heavy wheels to be a "super light" coupe. 27.82 lbs. on the front and 30.40 lbs. on the rear.

Now imagine if it had 19 lb. wheels...
