I was very mad at them trashing the W108. It was a 4.5 litre too! (at least it was not a 63)

They also trashed a BMW E28!

I do like the way he did NOT take the Lexus...

I think "The Transporter" is awesome and while not a BMW fan the 7 Series from the first film was the perfect car for him.


Audi keeps doing this **** and its starting to get on my nerves.
Anyone see Meet The Beckers? (Although I think they went easy on the Merc drivers in that one) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfXqt0PuHQk

In the commercial I have to say, the look on his face with the Lexus was classic

Audi shouldn't have done that.

Here's a link to the chase scene from "Ronin": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2d4ej1RPkEI . It will help you forget that Audi ad.

(the good Benz stuff starts at about 5:15)

I had a 300SD that was the same color and body type as the Benz in that chase scene. Mine never moved like the one in the movie.

Looks like it was already beat up before the Lincoln hit it. Not like it was a 6.3 or anything.

Also, you don't know if they actually hit it, they might have computer generated the impact.

I don't think they ever hit the Mercedes, it's all done in editing

Now I can buy an Audi again...would be bad if I never could get my self a S5.

I won't buy an Audi because I have now seen TWO commercials where they either hit (whether its fake or real doesn't matter....) one....or made one Fade away out of the driveway and become an Audi.....calling it "progress". Now I am anti-audi.
