Exclamation Looking for Owners of Unique BMWs for Video



Hey everyone,

I've been filming BMW 'Vehicle Tour & Review' videos as a hobby for the past year and am looking to add more cars to my YouTube Channel. The typical video shoot takes between 30-45 minutes for about 10 minutes of content, and includes going over the various features of the car, exterior styling, and interior buttons and controls. I'm hoping to add some driving elements to the videos now that I have some additional gear.

So far I've had the pleasure of filming:

2001 BMW 740iL - E38
2016 BMW 320i - F30
2016 BMW i8 - I25
2015 BMW X3 xDrive 28d - F25
2004 BMW 530i - E60
2004 BMW M3 Competition - E46

I'm looking for unique and OEM Bimmers to feature, OEM being as close to original exterior and interior as possible, engine and mechanicals aren't limited to this requirement. Unique cars we're looking for are ones with special features, such as Individual, or limited packages such as the ZCP M3, or fully loaded of a typical model, such as a 760Li with almost every option package.

While I won't turn anyone away, I do have a list of cars that I really want to feature. Those would be:

E31 8 Series, preferable 850i/Ci
E38 750iL, L7
E61 5 Series
E65 750i/Li or 760Li
Alpina Models (Prefer Pre-2000)

I'm located in Niagara (Lincoln) but can certainly travel, however video shoots need secluded space so I don't have areas outside of the Hamilton/Niagara area off hand to do videos. If you're interested in having your vehicle featured please send me a PM and we'll arrange something! My channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/perpetualradio

Sorry if this is the wrong subform to post in, I didn't want to spam in the general section since this is video related.

I was hoping you would reply! Do you have some time coming up in the next couple weeks that we should shoot at least one of them? I don't mind coming out to Milton, you never know I might need the 4th catalyst!

Do you plan to go to the BMW Car Club's Stoney Creek car show on Sunday by any chance? I should be there in the early afternoon and I'll have all my gear. If not, is there a weekend coming up that you have some free time? I'm usually good after Noon on Saturdays or any time Sunday. During the week things are going to be pretty full until the second week of October.

This Sunday is pretty busy, first the Fall Cruise, and then off the Season End Show for TN...

Yeah, this has to be one of the best collections of modern classic luxury BMWs in this area.

Your channel looks good, but I think it could really use some modern classic content. BMWs newer than the E46 and E39 aren't that interesting to me personally (and I know many others that feel that way).

How about a Z4M Coupe? Not a well known BMW but I'd say it's pretty unique.

I agree! I'd love to find older models to shoot like early 5s and 7s, and definitely a 635CSi. Since I'm starting up with this type of content I don't have a lot of influence per say, so I'm taking whatever I can get my hands on at the moment.

Unless a car is seriously modified beyond recognition or poorly maintained, I won't turn down the opportunity to shoot it!

Z4M for sure as well! Nothing would be turned down.

Since your personal preference is the bigger, more luxurious cars, I would suggest you focus on those exclusively to carve out a well defined niche with your channel. People like variety, but the platform itself offers that. Offering consistent high quality content is a guaranteed way to earn subscribers.

Personally, I'd love to see some of the more ridiculous luxury features in high end cars. What does a night vision system look like in operation? What does a rear powered reclining seat look like in operation? Stuff like that.

I got some friends with VERY clean 635's if you ever want to!

I wish I spent more time with the G12 750Li when I shot that, that car had fantastic tech like that!
