    • The return of the Ultimate Driving Machine - JOY campaign gone, hopefully permanently

      BMW announced earlier in the year that they were switching advertising agencies. You all remember the "JOY" ads. They were supposed to add a sense of humanity and humility to the BMW brand but instead in our opinion weakened the sharp and aggressive Ultimate Driving Machine image that only a company like BMW can pull off. Well, after a year of BMW's most expensive ad campaign in history "JOY" is gone and the Ultimate Driving Machine is back. A new ad agency has taken over, the agency responsible for JOY was let go. About freaking time, check out the first of the new Ultimate Driving Machine ads below.

        That was awesome. Now if only BMW offered that coffee refill service in real life, it really would be the ultimate driving machine and my life would be complete.

        they give a bottle of wine when you buy the car, for the rest of year you can just call them and say "it's empty", a guy will be sent to you and he gives another bottle.
        and it's not a cheap wine (don't remember the name).

        Well depending on the wine that might actually be a good value. I'd dig a deal like that.

        I'm not an expert, what do you think about these?
        2 bottle of Pol Roger champagne, 1 Bottle of Ivan Vodka and a bottle of Balvenie scotch whiskey.

        Is it the Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Blancs Extra Cuvée de Reserve, or Blanc de Chardonnay Brut?

        None, it was Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.
        is it good?

        Yes, it's excellent:

        I would say it is not worth the $200 or so a bottle as there are better values but that is a quality wine.

        as it turned to a wine thread, in your opinion what's the best wine for around $100 ?
        it should be common so i can get it from neighbor countries.
        Thanks

        Well, it depends what kind of wine. Sparkling? Red? White? Sweet? Port? Etc.

        I'm a fan of the 2004 Robert Foley Claret.

        I also think the 2004 and 2005 Versant Cabs are great for around $60-70, really great.

        The Bond Matriarch would be another in the sub $100 although it might be over that range now.

        As far as Rhone styles I would say the Tablas Creek 2007 Espirit de Beaucastel is a superb sub $100 value.

        Oh, and my overall fave would likely be the MollyDooker Enchanted Path, any vintage.
