Movies/TV shows with BMW scenes

Any come to mind? There was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in about 1999-2000 which featured a red BMW convertible. Giles, Buffy's Watcher, has had his venerable Citroen DS trashed in a previous episode. So he goes out and buys a convertible -- red over cream, I think it was. Probably a 3 Series, right? E36 or E46?

The episode does not fawn over the car, however. At one point Giles is chasing some entity (or it is chasing them), and apparently the car does not seem very fast to Buffy, who remarks, "Ultimate Driving Machine, my ass."

How about you? Any favorite scenes?

All the latest Mission Impossible movies of course. They're basically commercials for the brand!

The Bodyguard Season 1 on Netflix the main character drives the Home Secretary around in a G11/G12. During one of the last episodes the main character is driving a YMB F80 ZCP.

I knew about the MB 450SEL 6.9 that DeNiro drives in that movie, but hadn't paid attention to the BMW.

Best of all they paid $15K to rent it for 3 months. I wonder if that car is owned by a member here.

Netflix original movie called Wheelman features an M car. In fact the entire movie is basically him driving it making a drug run.

No, "dude," I started a thread about BMW scenes in movies and TV shows. Remember, I'm new to the brand (though not to German cars in general), and I'm curious about how the cars have been shown in media, that's all.

I was much more a fan of Cordelia, to tell you the truth.
