The international BMW website is available in two versions: for broadband and DSL internet connections, the video version is presented with animations, music and videos that are displayed using Adobe Flash. Ideal for modem and ISDN connections, the compact version contains the same content as the video version, however, it mainly avoids the use of animations, music and videos.
