Need For Speed Twitter Missions Could Score You A BMW

Complete Need for Speed missions on Twitter and you could win a shiny new BMW M3 courtesy of Electronic Arts.

Five days, five missions. EA is posting special tasks for fans of Need for Speed: Shift (or fans of BMWs I suppose) over at the Need for Speed Twitter. Completing the missions enters players into a drawing for the 2010 BMW M3, along with various other NFS-related goodies.

It's really an interesting little contest. Take today's mission for instance. You have to use Google Maps Street to find a real-world BMW and tweet a screen capture to @NeedforSpeed, with 50 winners scoring a gift bag and 1 receiving concert tickets to a Need for Speed soundtrack artist. I'm not particularly fond of the prizes, but the getting there sure sounds like fun.
