Trying to separate the artistic vision (was there a vision? ...) of the video from M Performance parts.

Artistic vision: the homage to The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Dryft in the beginning of the video couldn't define the goal for the viewer and fell short of the very goal which remains a mystery to this date.

M Performance parts: the brief glimpse of the exhaust looks awesome.

Verdict: not a threat to the artistic vision of VDub campaign from 2006.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VDub

"VDub was an American advertising campaign used by Volkswagen during 2006 for the Volkswagen GTI. Intended to parody MTV's Pimp My Ride, advertising agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky created a series of three television commercials directed by Jonas ┼kerlund, starring Swedish actor Peter Stormare as an effete German engineer named Wolfgang, and German model Sonja W÷stendiek as his assistant Miss Helga.

In each ad, Wolfgang introduces a "contestant" and Miss Helga showcases and insults their gaudy and distastefully modified compact car of a competitive make - specifically a Mitsubishi Eclipse, Ford Focus and a Honda Civic. Wolfgang then excitedly announces that they are going to "unpimp" the contestant's car, in which he presses a button on a handheld remote and the car is violently destroyed (such as being crushed by a shipping container or smashed by a wrecking ball) as the contestant watches. Each contestant is then given a brand new Volkswagen GTI, a car that has been "pre-tuned by German engineers". Wolfgang uses gestures and expressions reminiscent of hip-hop culture throughout the ads for humorous effect, such as when he proclaims "we just dropped it like it's hot!" after crushing a Ford Focus. Most notably, he opens every ad with "V Dub in the house!" and ends every ad by recreating the Volkswagen logo in a hand sign accompanied with, "V Dub! Representing Deutschland!"

Got damn that front is ugly as F! I cannot believe this shit grill got approved for production. It's no wonder there are already YouTube videos of attempt redesigns by aftermarket companies.

This looks like the modifications done on old VW beetles in the '70s

Oh wow...what a video, apart from amazing sound it actually shows the beautiful car and the focus is on the driving and exhaust.

I think the marketing department knows that now they have to sell the shitty graphics and that horrible pyramid exhaust, so they tried to change the frames so quickly that you cannot see anything except that fire on hands

Loved that commercial. Not only does it nicely portray what the M3 was all about (ideal daily driver and track toy combo), it perfectly showcases the advertised product itself (the MPE) with the enhanced sound experience it provides. Not the case at all with the G8X M-Performance add in the OP. I am sad, sorry and disappointed, but I no longer associate with BMW ///M products. I feel like I have been booted out. A 992 is already on order for me.

Agree with you on the manual. I judge the sh*t out of anyone who buys any automatic transmission. Probably why I have so few friends in the car community.

I have an M3 CS, I wear glasses, and I don't think it looks anything like a mustang (I have yet to see a mustang I liked in 38 years of life lol).

LOL - not really makes me want to go out and buy it.
It makes me think I really need to find a different brand of car.
