Very interesting observation!

Its strange how in the BMW pic it seems asthough the metal railing is curved!
I wonder if the photographer was the same and did this on the sly..... or whether the photographers were different and this was just a coincedence!

Damn thats an interesting find. It does look like its exactly the same place, and I am surprised that BMW and Merc could have goofed up like this. Or probably BMWs way of saying "Where the CLS can go, our 1 series can too"!!

It could also be the original owner of this location fingering the Germans.

Exactly...no matter what situation i cooked up the owner of this place was always the last straw in "how could this have happened?"

But it is possible that this is just a house on the market and its leased out as one of those locations for shoots through a company that did not realise that they couldnt afford to give it to BMW and MERC without causing a bit of a stir!
