A touching story with one very sexy star dressed in redesigned

LISTEN 01:28

The E30 BMW M3 is one of the most memorable and iconic cars to every come out of BMW’s stable. It was one of those times when an automaker managed to get everything right from design, to performance, luxury, and everything in between. The E30 M3 was, without a doubt, an absolute blast to drive to the point that’s it practically therapeutic. And, that’s where this short film, titled “The Interview” comes into play.

I don’t want to and spoil it for you, as you simply must watch it from start to finish. But, the base line of the story is that the main human character is faced with a serious dilema. He’s heading to yet another job interview, only to leave in disappointment. Right around the same time, his girlfriend pushes the issue that the struggle is so bad that he just might have to sell that wonderful M3 if he doesn’t get the job.

Needless to say, the main character and the E30 have a close bond and, despite his next interview not going well, our protagonist takes off for a drive. The ending is pure bliss, but you’ll have to watch it to see what happens. The point is that this short film will remind you how a good, long drive in the right car can be one of the most amazing stress relievers on the planet. Go ahead and watch the short film below – you’ll be glad that you did!

Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read full bio
