I see what you're saying, but you're comparing apples and oranges.

BMI = All out testing to push the car to the absolute limit.

Fast & Furious = Driving 25 mph then making it look like they're driving to the absolute limit in editing.

In other words, there's very little risk involved in filming Fast & Furious movies, but with BMI, driving 10/10ths is mighty close to 11/10ths, and 11/10ths in a Southern California forest could mean a massive forest fire, possible lives lost, and millions upon millions in property damage.
