    It is a legit move though, and done before:

    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    That's good, for a minute I thought this was another one of those comparisons that leave you scratching your head and asking, "why"? When the X5M cut the track it became pretty clear what the intent of the video was...

    BMW pulls a "Zanardi" having the X5 M pass the BMW M3 on the outside of the corkscrew at Laguna Seca

    Alex Zanardi. If that name does not ring a bell, please stop reading this and do some research about a legendary driver. Now, to be clear, this is a marketing piece. BMW did not accidentally have this happen while the X5 M was racing the M3 on the track. They chose a legendary Motorsport moment to mimic for a reason. That is fine, this still makes for a cool little video. We would like to see a real comparison of the two on Laguna Seca though just for fun.

    What's funny is that BMW had no part in that little piece of racing history at all. Why are they recreating it with a fat ol SUV of all cars is also beyond me. That X5M belongs on a track like electricity belongs to North Korea.

    Pretty funny though for people who remember it. A lot of people just see it as SUV's can drive over sh!t.

    That was an awesome pass by Zanardi. I haven't seen this before. Click here to enlarge

    The M video is pretty cool too... Would like to see the time difference of these two cars as mentioned in the article.

    An SUV going off road obviously isn't epic or anything but at least this helps people take notice of an epic pass.
