View Full Version : Wrecked the wagon :(

Well today I wrecked my moms 525i Touring :mad: Heres what happend:

A few months ago my mom had the throttle stick wide open but the dealer said they fixed it, well I think that is what happened. I was driving out of the high school after finals, and when I started to turn the car when nuts, the throttle came wide open and I did a huge fishtail and lost controll, I tried to regain controll but failed. I then spun into the other lane, thank god no cars were coming, then spun back across the road and into the ditch across from the high school. A wrecker came and pulled it out and it looks ok but I blew a tire and ripped the back bumper off. The guys from the recker said that the suspension looked ok, but they couldn't tell for sure, but they thought that I might have bent a rim. The car is on the way up to the dealer right now so they can look at it tomorow, but from what I could see there was no major damage.

God my dad is going to kill me :(

btw this is my first post, I have been an avid reader for some time but never got around to registering, but man I needed to vent.

You guys with your m3's and m5's think your cars are fast? You have no idea what speed like that feels like, I now understand what speed really is and will probubly never drive the car again because I dont want that to happen again.

today my frind came in school in his new 1987 325e.
so I skipped school so we can go to bmw dealership to ask CODE for his radio. so he was turning left, and his car strated to fishtail and he spun 180 degrees and hit the curb.
So when we came to the dealership we inspected the car and found out that he bent the rim real good.
but the guy was so excited abut real wheel drive car, so he wasn't even pissed, he just said I love bimmers.
he also has 1991 civic sedan.

Man I know how you feel about fish tailing...Freaking a. I own a '79 528i 4spd. I was doing about a 100 on the freeway and once i got into the car pool lane my left rear tire completly blew out, the car was going straight for the center divider i just adjusted the steering wheel straight, then bam i lost control. spun out on the freeway doing 5 360s through the middle of traffic. My mom was sleeping in th back. I was like oh damn...but i stopped the car before even crashing into the wall... we spun around for like 100 feet. the only thing that happened was scratched the bumper and a bent rim. It was through LA traffic which sucks. How did i manage to get through, even i ahve no idea. Thank God.
