Casey's 1994 BMW 530i wagon classified ad – Click above to watch video after the jump

If this isn't the very best used car ad ever, it is certainly up there – definitely the most inspired we have seen in a very long time.

Young Casey wants to move this 1994 BMW 530i Touring, and he's using a bit of Michael Ceraesque geekiness to do it. He's totally honest about its 194,218 miles, leaky sunroof and broken cigarette lighter, as well as its Ultimate Power and Extreme Sound. Except for that rear seat speaker. Follow the jump for a beautiful dose of entertainment. We do one question for Casey, though: um, what's that sign in the trunk about? Hat tip to Jon!

      I am always puzzled by sellers who say that their old, crappy car is "great for new drivers." I don't mind tinkering with my 21-year-old Mercedes, and I know what to do if it leaves me stranded at a rest stop, at night, in the middle of nowhere (yes, that happened) -- but aren't new drivers the ones we should want to put in new, safe, reliable machines?

        I have to disagree. I think new drivers should all have cars that break down and have problems. It's the best way to learn, that's why I can do basic trouble shooting, brake jobs, change: belts hoses, lights, tires, batteries, starters, ball joints, replace engines and install car stereos. Because if my first few beater cars didn't have those various problems I would have never had the chance too learn. It also teaches about panic driving, because is a stuck gas pedal is easy to handle after having a hood fly up.

      the kid and/or other creators of that ad are geniuses. every choice brilliant. as good as an OK Go! video.

      Unfortunately, this will be used as an idea for the next Michael Cera film. (puke)
      • 4 Years Ago
      Definitely creative. If I was in the market for high mileage BMW station wagons I'd give it a chance.

      Have to laugh at the half hidden "p***y magnet" sign in the back.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I missed that the first time, had to re-watch it. Funny as hell.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It'll probably be in the gag-reel.
        • 4 Years Ago
        hahahahahah LOL
        Missed it too at first....
        hahahahah....

        For anyone else, it is @ about 2:30 in.
        Where all the signs are sitting on top of the spare tire compartment cover...

      awesome commercial hopefully he gets asking price
      • 4 Years Ago
      No, actually the E34 5 Series 530i from 92 to 96 had a small block M60 3.0 L V8 that produced somewhere around 220hp.

      lol... One of the signs in the trunk said "Pussy Magnet". I kept waiting for it to show up in the commercial but that was its only cameo appearance.
      • 4 Years Ago
      nice , not 3K worth of nice but nice
      • 4 Years Ago
      this is better than any of the commercial that the agency I work for puts out...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ouch. Hopefully you're not talking about GSD&M/Idea City.

      Awesome video!!
      Car should sell for 5 grand just because of the advert. Very well done..!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Cool wagon. Much better than all the new crossovers like X5,X6 etc.
