By golly, you're right. It was a 6-series. A metallic beige looking one. Probably a 635.

I thought it was a 318? Single tip exhaust.. could be wrong.. i just saw it awhile ago.. charlie sheen right? and he ends up boinking the girl during the chase doesn't he.. while driving??

i guess that's how I'd want to die.... driving my favorite car at high speeds while making love to a gorgeous girl...

The Italian Job - 850?
Bourne Identity - E46 3 sedan (chrome vertical slats?)
Snatch - E28 5er (Sol and Vincent's car late in the movie)
The World Is Not Enough - Z8
Ronin - E34 M5
The Peacemaker - E28 5er
Tomorrow Never Dies - 750iL, some BMW motorcycle
Golden Eye - Z3

The O.C. - the Cohens' 7er, Summer's E46 vert
I just returned from I-Robot (wasn't that a 70s album??? Alan Parson's Project) with Will Smith. He drove an Audi. But there was a promo about a movie called Taxi with a sweet looking BMW, and 4 babes driving the car in bikinis! Not sure what model though. Oh, I-Robot was not too good. Ciao

Harold & Kumar, excellent comedy, features what looks like a 330Ci ZHP convertible. Sweet.

The trailer for the upcoming Taxi features a red 7 (with an aero kit?) and two TiAg M3 verts.

On the BMW website, there is a reference to a new 'Hire' series that will be in comic book, excuse me, graphic novel form,from BMW Films and Dark Horse Comics; the first two in the series are "Scandal" and "Precious Cargo". Retailers are listed at www.darkhorse.com.

I doubt anyone wathces the show Newlyweds on MTV but Nick on the show had a 540i. I haven't seen it in recent episodes but he does have a new 645ci.

The Bourne Supremacy had lots of bimmers, including a 745i which looked quite nice.

Just saw that last evening (8/1) - a really good movie!

The Bimmer that Bourne was driving looked like a 735? ; the bad guy drove both a black 745i and a G-Class.

The Polizei had what looked like a bunch o' C-Classes, although I think I glimpsed a couple o'Bimmers among them.

I was surprised to see quite a few GM and Chrysler vehicles in Berlin...I guess Benzes, Bimmers and Audis are soooo common

Bourne was driving an E28 5er.

The black 745i was growing on me in an action sequence role...

The Polizei had a few E39 5er wagons, and there were a ton of other incidental BMWs all over the streets of Germany.

In tonight's episode of Lost, Sawyer walks out to the street where there's an (E39) M5 parked out front during his flashback.

Good show, Lost is.

So I guess that means that if I feel that way about a guy I'm not allowed to say it? Well, tough cuz I think he's hella sexy too!

The Mothman Prophecies had a red sedan... It was an older-model one... It's been a while since I saw it, but I think it was a 5er. That movie also had a really nice Audi A8L
