Speed.. It's exhilaration. It's freedom. It's risk. And it's money, fast money: quickly won and quickly lost. For four young people speed is a way of life, but as they soon come to realize speed comes at a high cost. On the streets debts are not settled with cash, they are settled in blood.
(at around 1h 17 mins) We see the BMW (gray car) reversing and turning the other way. Notice that the rims in that car aren't the same used in very next shot which should be just a replay from another angle of the first shot. And in some more shots close to the tire we see that difference. See more »
Who's the mechanic: you or the computer?
Then start acting like one! A real mechanic looks, feels, listens. What this car is saying to you, by puking up fuel vapor, is that it would run a lot better if you could lead the mixture up.

Street racers, nudity, hot dogs and strange cars
This movie is the pinnacle of Bosnian and redneck drivers kicking Russian asses in the German underground. The plot consists of a family garage, love and life at stake and a gangster thrown in for not much reason. Then there is good vs. evil vs. not so-sure, which, by far, is the best part. While the movie tries to deliver the feeling of a German underground racing mixed with family and emotional values it fails at the very heart of it - the racing part. The racing drivers are cruising with an A4 and a police BMW 5th series (not to be confused with M5) doing their usual police/theft chases and through the night they are racing Fords, Nissans and not much more! Add the famous Z4 Coupe just to make sure you get how much of 'real' racers they are.
The 'gangster' has a Bentley and a few Ferraris in the garage, but of course they are not so fast. Let's just not mention how famous Europeans are for their love of Japanese and especially American cars as it is well described in Top Gear, Fifth Gear, every car magazine ant the sales charts... Then there is the fact that within 250 km. range from the filming location there are about 20 faster serial models being produced...well let's forget about that. I blame the low budget for not letting one of those cars get involved, but that is part of the 'magical' experience in my view. On the positive note there are some kick-ass driving in the movie. Acting is not that cheesy, although you could hardly like most of the characters, they are good enough to provoke some emotional attachments. I give it 4 out of 10 because it is a good try for the German cinema. Although, I have no idea what Germany had to do with it. The classy act from the main two racers makes up for the step from 3 to 4. A mediocre time waster if you got a lot of it.
