The wiper stalk works differently on the E9x than on previous cars and the owner really should have shown him how to setup launch control, but Adam should've done an easy test lap before going all-out... I'm guessing they were running out of time to shoot the segment?

Still... that was just sad.
I agree. At the risk of sounding like a major noob, the E9x wiper stalk did confuse me at first. It is different than previous gens.

Anyway.. what I saw here was major overconfidence. Something we ALL know you cannot have in a BMW. We've all been there at some point and that's what happens.
