The only drivers that are worse than M3 drivers are the 1M drivers. They don't just do curb rashes, they flip their ugly little cars multiple times! At this rate, that eye sore will be gone! Go hang out in their forum sometimes, it's hilarious. Especially the Randy Pobst thread... epic.

Yes, I discovered that for the first time when turning out of a narrow driveway onto the narrow inside lane of a service road. Bump...aaaah!!...phew...

Hmmm

If someone can't position a car going at 1mph relative to a fixed object , can they be trusted driving a car at 65mph with other vehicle moving around them ...

But somehow there is always that moment of inattention that lies in the waiting , it can happen to the best of us .

Replaced my passenger front wheel today. Curbed the crap out of it the 2nd day I had the car. Nasty parking lot curb but still I thought I had room... first time in maybe 10yrs that I've done that. Oh well... doesn't help that the PS2s are stretched on the wheels to begin with. There is no protection at all for newbies driving close to curbs.

Not one of my wheels has the slightest scratch on them and the one wheel that I'm selling wasn't mine to begin with and came that way.

So neener neener neener!

(or people are letting their wive's drive them) You don't want to see my wife's wheels. Ugh. And no, she hasn't driven my M3 yet nor will she ever most likely.

I've been driving for year and I just curb my wheel for the first time of my life last month. I was tired, 2hrs of sleep, went to work then lunch. While exiting the parking lot through a narrow exit, there was a curb in my blind spot which I completely ignored. Note to myself, pay extra attention when extremely sleepy, don't go back to that place ever again
