    I've not been able to get the Search function to work all day so I'm not for sure if this has been posted yet.

    It's a must see. I listed all the places to download the video to your hard drive because I'm not for sure how long they will be there. It's a quick time file that’s about 4.8mb. I first saw it on a BMW M5 forum and later did a search on goggle were I found a lot of info from Slashdot.


    Where to See it?

    Where to Download?

    Call the Honda Contact Centre on 0845 200 8000 and ask for a free DVD of THAT Honda ad. They also got it on VHS if you prefer."
