So, it's ok to ignore all your surroundings as long as you pay attention to the HUD. And it's ok to speed past construction workers on the road, as long as your car say's there's no traffic obstruction.

Not very good messages.

BMW usually had good/clever commercials. These to are very lame and send a bad message. :

should have made it so they were finishing paving a new road or putting the final piece of a bridge in so the road could then be used.. and the BMW was the first car to use the new bypass or bridge, etc..

to me it just seemed like the construction workers were like "what the hell man, we're in the road!"

I think these commercials are marvelous. Everyone already knows what BMW has to offer, these commercials were meant to look innovative and to freshen up the scene.

The first one seems like it was trying to hard to be artsy. The second at least kept me pondering how they'd integrate the message about RTTI until the car came whizzing through.
