I forget, did we discuss that BMW revived The Hire series a while back? Worthy of the original series.

The originals are cult classic status. The new one is a great Homage to the originals.

This one is from 2016 so it's not exactly new.

We can all agree that Ambush was the best, right?

Respectfully, Star is my favorite for the M5 shennaigans.

I missed this or forgot about it I guess. Pretty cool, though the M4 they used is kinda meh.

If I remember correctly, the first video of the first series that was released was the one that featured a 740i sport.  While the e39 M5 was a better performer, I've always liked the looks of that car.

The E38 740i is a classic look. It's also a great driving car.

"Powderkeg" with Stellen Skaarsgard was my favorite... :) I think that was the most "authentic" film BMW did.
