Has anybody else seen the new BMW "car in a barn" commercial? I love when they cut to farmer john banging through the gears in his new car!

Are there any BMW experts out there that can tell us what car was in the barn and why it's special?

It's a 2002 and it's not, particularly. It must have covered the deposit ;)

If anyone has 3meg of spare space I have 'Farmer' and 'Tow Truck' as Quicktime movies.

Yeah, from the one time I saw the commercial, it appeared to be an old 2002. They were cool little runabouts in their day. Agile, light and fun. Sort of like the Mini of today.

Yes, Many consider the old 2002's to be the first "performance sedan",That is a sedan with sports car handling. Amoung certain circles they are considered a landmark car.
