(Finally got a scanner, and was able to scan these older photographs.)
Our current E90 330i is our fourth 3-Series generation to own. A number of years ago, my wife flipped our E36 as shown below. She walked away, completetly unharmed
from this accident. She was very lucky for sure, and not every story like this has a happy ending.
That was our second BMW, and from that day forward, we've been dedicated to having a 3'er as the main family sedan. Like most of us, we got hooked on the performance and handling. Now, we also have an appreciation for the safety and technology.
OK, here is how it happend. This was a late summer day, there was no rain for about two weeks. Then one morning there was a mist in the air, making the roads slightly wet, and the oil which was on the roadway came to the surface creating a hazardous condition. She braked late into the turn at low speed, and lost it. This was in the days before stability control.
Hopefully, none of you will get a phone call like I did that day. I arrived onsite before the police/safety crews.
