BMW USA has contacted me...

And they asked my signed permission to feature my car in their upcoming commercial! Needless to say, I accepted. I don't know any details whatsoever, but I am very excited. So here's to hoping!

What do they want an old 330i for?
Does it have to do with replacing the cooling system?

Don't tell them how many times you have/plan to replace the cooling system, they won't understand.

This might have to do with the 10 Best Commercial for Car and Driver. Either way, it's awesome. Your car definitely deserves it.

You know, I saw this on my facebook about BMW wanting to feature older 3 series cars in a commercial. They want you to submit pictures of you with your car. I may have to throw my hat into the ring.

Damn awesome that they contacted you! And you're a bastard now because I'm jealous!

I hope you did not agree to their initial offer to pay you $10,000 for the rights!

I'm not jealous, but I couldn't think of a worse car to pick myself.

I guess they're paying him back for all those unnecessary parts he's convinced people to buy from BMW.
