F30 on Homeland

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My favourite TV Show at the moment is "Homeland". Just love the complex plot and intricate characters.

Much to my surprise, when the vice president's teenage son rolled to a stop in a car with Dana Brody the distinctive headlight treatment of the F30 immediately announced which car he was driving. (Season 2 Episode 4)

Imagine that: my favourite car appearing in my favourite show!!

Did anyone else notice?

Has the F30 made an appearance in any other TV shows or movies?

Does he have a stable of BMWs? Or is it clever product placement?

You know what is funny? The same kid was driving an E90 in this episode. I swear that the last one was an F30 with the squared halos and front fascia. They did a switcheroo this week and i bet nobody else noticed. lol!

oops! just saw the other posts. Haha. That was pretty clever of them.

Yup. I saw him with the E90 yesterday and I was like "Haha, they thought nobody would notice the switcheroo". You can't fool us BMW enthusiasts lol. I think they used the E90 for that chase scene because they couldn't risk damaging the brand new F30.

That's what I thought at first, but I just think its availability. Who know

I also felt like a goof for my post last week stating the kid was driving an F30 when it might have been an E90 all along. So Im glad there is some agreement here that the cars were indeed different

Lets write to the director and express how disappointed we are that they tried to dupe us. Haha.

Their use of vehicles is odd.

I am a couple of episodes behind, but when Brody was driving the Tahoe around, I noticed the interiors dash trim kept changing from wood to aluminium and back.

They must just grab whatever car is handy at the time.

Yes, and request some naughty photos of brody's wife to make up for the directors good up
