After being in TO last weekend for easter and more north at times there's just a lot of bimmers period lol

I stayed at my brother in laws and well walking through his condos under ground parking saw a bunch, one was a max member (dark blue e39 that I saw for sale here) small world. I also saw a e46 silver M3 vert with chrome rims...god I hope that wasn't a member here.

rip, he was young too, only 26 years old. Sad to hear.

they were reporting it as an SUV...

so confused. The distance of the crash and debris. he had to have been covering some serious and I mean super serious ground

even still you dont get ejected if you were wearing your seat belt... its like the kid in the range that died. the driver stayed put. the passenger got ejected..which tells me he wasnt wearing his belt. Still horrible


Im surprised they didnt light up the news with street racing this and street racing that.

They would have, had another car been involved. I wonder how fast he was going?

I'm going to guess he was on high performance summers and the temperature was low, and he didn't know how terrible those tires handle at low temps, so what he could do in the summer wasn't feasable this time.

Im going to say no, serious street tire or not he was going too fast, no tire handles that well sideways at 100+mph. It wasn't a tire that killed him, it was him. Unless of course they come out with news of a fault we do not know.

I agree it was his fault, just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. I haven't seen that video yet; no idea how far he landed from the road.

it was said in the news, that his parents left for china 3 days earlier to attend his grandfathers funeral.... looks like when they get back they will attend his...


as a side note: the 19 yr old idiot driving the land rover is out on 20g bail... from the news footage he's a typical hipster doofus with mommy shielding him from the media.

Holy shit! Looking at the video, from what you can still see of the car, it looks somewhat intact considering. He must not have been wearing his seatbelt i guess. Thats scary though. I agree with you guys, he was driving like an idiot clearly. But I feel so bad for his poor family.
