Video: Best used car classified ad ever? It involves a BMW

Joy? Ultimate Driving Machine? Well, let’s put those slogans and buzzwords aside and have a look at an old school used car ad. The main character: a 1994 BMW 530i Wagon.

Young Casey wants to move this 1994 BMW 530i Wagon and he’s using a geeky approach to do so. While many of us tend to focus on the positive angles on the for-sale car, Casey goes the other route, sporting some disarming honest disclosures, from a leaky sunroof, to a broken cigarette lighter and close to 200,000 miles.

Humor all the way, very creative and…..some nice subtle touches. Pay attention to the video!

    Did anyone notice that, at about 2:34, one of the marketing signs in the back reads: “P U S S Y M _ _ _ _ _”?

    ‘Magnet, perhaps? Does granny swing both ways? ;-)

    When I was young (80s) I used to see one of those parked in a supermarket. It stayed there for about almost 20 years, because its owner left it there and never came back to get it. As the laws here (Brazil) are somewhat messed (police can only remove a car from a parking lot if you have the owner or his family’s approval) it stayed there collecting dust.

    In 2008 it vanished! I was surprised and tried to know why. The manager of the place told me the owner’s family found out about it from a BMW online community (it was a famous car here) and went there to retrieve it.

    I shit you not gentlemen, the guy told me they poured some gasoline, some air in the tires and it started. As if it was brand NEW! Even the air conditioning worked fine! No failure AT ALL!

    That was what a true BMW is, too bad that quality is being watered down….
