BMW Films

Does anyone know where you can still find the BMW Hire Series film with the X5 in it? I of course can find the M5 one with Madonna with no problem but alas no X5 video. Thanks!

Make me an offer and I'll send you a complete set (both seasons) on DVD. Original copy, not a burned copy, still in the shrink wrap from BMW.

Thanks yall. A bit more dramatic than I remembered but good film. Also, since this x was a stick, I am assuming its a 3.0?

Yea they're great films. I show it to my friends and others when there's nothing to do, and they're all very impressed. I liked Ambush and Star the best. I wished they had one on the E46 M3.......that would be priceless.

Dammit misplaced my DVD set though
