There's some incentive for being creative.

Too bad it's not in Europe.

Here's my submission:

I enlisted my kids, the E86, and the E28.



Lemme know if I need to translate what the 5 year old is saying.

Daughter: "I like the performance, but I worry about fuel economy"
Son: "It's a classic! But I need modern safety"

It's indeed a bit unclear what is said, I had to rewind it three times lol. Perhaps an idea to do some small subtitles/captions below?

updated my post with my entry. I got a question for everyone.

i noticed after i submitted that the video is in my youtube account. it is originally put as unlisted. if I put it as listed will it ruin anything?
