No doubt. I had a nice ****up, tried to avoid an accident and bent a control arm. Next time I'm t-boning the ****er. That's my lesson learned

I'm going to leave this post and community with one message:

Modesty is supremacy.


(BTW the car in my profile is BS, they didn't even make a 03 Passat 1.8T AWD)

If this situation ever happens to me I'll feel very guilty. Hopefully I won't ever over steer that much considering my engine is in the back and I have AWD.

So long and people please, please drop the uppity egos.

Alright, we're locking this thread.

Mistakes were made, the owner of the M3 has admitted his fault. He has learned an expensive lesson, not only financially, but also in terms of pride. I believe it's safe to assume we have all done stupid things once upon a time before we learned both our personal limits, and the limits of our vehicles---hopefully without injuring anyone or causing property damage. None of us would be walking, if we didn't stumble, fall, learn something, and try again. Let's agree that this member has learned his lesson, and will hopefully be heedful in the future.

There are excellent BMW advanced driver training courses available that I recommend everyone attends, regardless of what vehicle you drive or how powerful it is. We also have countless maXbimmer events for race junkies to advance your skills in a controlled environment. You can even learn a lot just by riding shotgun with a certified race instructor.

One lesson that I feel has not been emphasized enough here, is to ensure your passengers are buckled up while you're behind the wheel. Things like this happen, sometimes from mechanical failure. Count your blessings that no one has been injured. The M3 can be repaired or replaced, people however, can not.

The members from vwvortex.com had a lot of insightful things to say on their forum (both positive and negative criticism), unfortunately much of that charisma was lost in translation by those that chose to represent their forum over here. Of course, they are free to continue on our forum as contributing members. I would also like to remind our members to avoid personal attacks, towards both visitors, and resident members.

Good luck with your car "Pure GQ".

Justin
