Like others had stated, they will watch it but not buy for reasons stated
and if you are honest with yourself, do you think majority wil buy it after watching the trailer?

You would be better off, fronting it with advertising, at least you get paid when one click on it...

again.. just my opinion

Tons of people have preordered already and maxbimmer seems to be the single forum that anyone had a negative comment about it.

The best thing about the BMW forums is that people aren't afraid to slam other members for doing stupid mods, the brutal honesty is what's great and entertaining!

I love cars as much as the next guy but I can't quite figure out some aspects of the "car scene". One thing especially is the artsy walk around videos of a car. I wait and wait for the part where it's on the track or drifting or doing SOMETHING and then it ends without the car even moving. It'd be comparable to a skateboard video that just shows the board sitting there from a bunch of different angles without someone actually skating and using it.. Totally pointless!

Maybe if I watch this video I'll get some clarity around it.

There is potential in this movie, I get the point, it's more then the cars, it's the friendships that are made through the scene, which is a topic most car films don't touch.

Sound does need some work, video is no worst then some documentaries I've seen make film festivals.

Ill be interested in seeing the final cut of the film, a good documentary is one of the hardest films to get right, dazzle the mainstream with a story pulled from a sub culture. Not any easy task.

Since your filming on the 20th, you may want to contact the trillium BMW club and see if you can film at the autoslalom race on the 21st. There are some amazing cars and people at these events.

Nice video, to those who think civics are are all about hitting vtec and painting them ferrari red are idiots. Go try to keep up with a healthy civic at the track with your bmw and see what happens.

Just watched the trailer.. I understand fully what this is about and should be a good documentary on why we do what we do with our cars. No matter to what extent we mod our cars. I also think it will make people who see modded cars understand why we do it. Looking forward to the release.

Really? Maybe you can explain what the trailer is trying to say.

I just watched it again, and for the life of me cannot figure out what they're trying to portray at all.

Something about making friends is the most I got of it to be very honest.

Nothing in the video showed me anything about them wanting to show what it is like to be a car enthusiast or why we are and do what we do.

I think as a project the video might be fun for them.. but I don't see anything that makes me want to say "take my money".
