The '02 was love at first sight, but this particular one was decades in the making.

Tom owns three of the most beautiful BMW models ever. Especially the convertible 😉 Thanks for this video and greetings from Germany.

Absolutely enjoyed the story. And a lovely car, too. It’s really pretty – pretty like pleasant and classy. Most cars today seem to have quite a bit of aggression in styling. I wonder why, it almost seems like a universal trend across many many objects.
P.S. I’m gonna be that guy and say this. It’s a coo-pay, not a coop. I know I know, but a coop is where you keep your chickens. There’s a movement to save 3-pedal manual, we need one for the proper pronunciation of the word Coupé.

What is the background music to this film? I really like it.

Nice guy. Nice car. (Not sure about those front number plates though — each to their own I guess).

Yet another great story. But, your audio tech and editor hurt the product. You will have to pardon a former TV producer for the nit pick, but the interview audio (the anchor for the storyline) was lousy. Camera mic? And the problem was compounded with the music track – it walked all over the thin audio from the interview. A decent mix of the two channels could have saved it. Excellent photography and editorial content, however.

This is an icon car, drives very nice and looks super cool. I prefer the 3.0 CSI. because it has 200 hp. Thanks for the nice storry.

And not only does Tom seem like a really nice guy, he proves it by letting his dog ride in the back!

There is one here locally that I see occasionally. It is an automatic and that suits me just fine since I can no longer operate a ,annual safely all the time. I have spoken with the owner , it’s not for sale at this time, but I am nothing if not persistent 🙂

The 3.0CS was the first car I ever fell in love with. My dad had (and still does) one since the day I was born.

This gentleman is my kind of person. “Don’t buy it automatic, buy the manual transmission”.
Well done.

I am lucky to be an e9 owner and I nodded and smiled in agreement the entire film. You nailed the coupe experience. Well done!

What an awesome car. Definitely the next i will buy. I totally agree that you have to drive a bmw coupe to understand the magic.
