I twatted my R33 GTR into a curb showing off to 3 young ladies I had in the car many moons ago. Tried to spin it round in a t-junction as I used to be able to make it almost spin on the spot. it didn't spin (maybe because of my current payload of said ladies), it gripped and fired me sideways into the curb. Rear sub-frame bent and front track-rod bent. It looks a right sorry state.

I didn't get any poon-tang that evening either.

Your right, most of us have done something silly and some have been caught out and paid the price. My M135i had me :censored: myself a few times and had I been carrying just a few more MPH the result could have been a lot lot worse, inches away from hitting a kerb

I was reading all these comments and thought the same thing. Don't know the chap who drove, don't know if he worked his ass off to get the car or not, but I bet you he felt like a twat and regretted it. Glad nobody was hurt, lesson learnt we hope.
Exactly and lets hope so, ...probably an expensive lesson to learn. :| :thumbs:

I assume the driving mode was all nannies off (DSC fully off) when it happened?
Could you even make that happen in Comfort/Sport/Sport+?

equally worth watching, the beat up cars early in the video spinning their wheels and almost kangerooing away.

Ouch.

I forgot I had put mine in "Traction" as I was testing out what the car sounds like with the symposer disabled this morning. I pulled out hard onto the main road and the back end came out - my hands didn't look pretty but if you'd have been filming it from 50 yards back you'd have been impressed :lol:
F20 M135i - most toys
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!
F87 M2 - most toys

Traction is the business but it doesn't take long to remember you're not in Sport!
