And that's why BMW -- and everyone else -- uses it for testing. It's got hills, too. This is part of the reason modern cars don't sit on the side of the highway sputtering fluids anymore.

This isn't much of a spy video per se, but there're cars in camo and engineers talking about hot weather idling. It's more interesting than it sounds.
