    You don't see ads like this in the USA!

    For those who get their panties in a wad over the Scorpion ads, how about this UK ad?

    A different take on "pre-owned," for sure.

    They have a point. After a good cleaning, my used acquisitions look and feel new.

    It will take an XXL to get all that hair into a helmet.

    SEX or even the hint of it draws attention to an ad.

    I find the ad to be in poor taste....
    Is BMW trying to change their image?

    I'd guess so, but what image are they trying to project and who are they marketing to?

    I must be getting really old. The girl in the ad looks way too young for me.

    I think the ad would be more effective with a woman in her 20s or 30s. The ad is for "pre owned" vehicles. This looks like an ad for illegally stealing a new bike off the factory floor!
