I got my BMW dvd today!

I got the dvd in the mail.I live in Canada so maybe they sent them out earlier.The bad thing about it is I payed $7.95 and they didn't package it,they just stuck a sticker on the back of the dvd with my address.Good thing the disk wasn't loose inside.Did anyone else get it?

No outer package? In that case I suspect the kid next door will end up with mine. :-\

?!?!?!?

I'll never see mine. My post office is notorious for opening mail and stealing stuff.......

If something does happen, BMW will be sending me another copy since I actually PAID for this one.

It's the first and second seasons on one disc. You can get it for about $4 shipped at the bmwfilms site. I'm still waiting for mine.

Kolchak: When did you order it? I didn't even know it could be ordered. Last time I was there I left my email to be contacted when they would become available, which I wasn't. Just ordered it now...

Quite nicely done...

I haven't had time to watch the rest of the movies nor the features...but for the price!...quite impressed!...

BRAVO!

I got mine too today - the mailing label was attached to the shrinkwrap of the DVD. It doesn't matter though - it's here!

(I live in Toronto).

So what is the situation with the Follow? Is it the original one, or was Forrest Whitaker recast? Is it even on it? I thought that I read that it was...

I got mine today! I live in Vancouver, BC.

I've only watched The Chosen so far, but it seems different from when I saw it on the site. It seems to be a longer cut of the film :-)

Got mine today and I am in Sydney, Australia... same deal as the others with regards to the lack of packaging.

Yeah, but very carefully worded eh?

Shipping to the UK is $7.75 USD (=£5) - and that's not even from the US to the UK, but from Germany to the UK And we just get a sticker too, like you guys, not even an envelope or a proper Amaray, so it's light as a feather - so why are they charging $7.75 for shipping? They would be better off saying the DVD costs $7.75 with free shipping - I'd respect them more for their honesty. After all, at the end of the day, this is promotion for them. They should be giving it away totally free! A whole new era of marketing has been launched - the consumer PAYS for the adverts

Honda UK gave away free DVDs of their latest adverts. And I mean free. Shipping was free too. And the DVD came in a nice transparent Amaray. Maybe I'm biased 'cause I'm a Honda owner though

Man, I haven't gotten mine yet and I'm only like 2 states away from where they shipped it. That stinks that they didn't put any packaging around it. That pretty much guarantees it'll come half destroyed.
