Maybe with his new M3 he can drag race in school zones. That would be much safer for him. Too much car, too little common sense.

Glad to see some others with the same mindset glad he's ok, but keep it on the track and watch the center lines on the spirited cruises.

Oh my god. I can't imagine what was going through his head when he realized what was about to happen. I am glad that he made it out okay though.

It has a sensor that detects the amount of roll (not so much body roll as much as detecting if the car is flipping in the air) the car is experiencing and if it goes past a certain point it detonates the airbags. It measures other data as well though.

Glad he made it out there alive. Especially without taking someone else down with him, imagine a car coming from the other way?

It's like he'd never even driven that road before. He clearly had no idea that curve was coming or he would have most likely known how to navigate it better. What an asinine thing to do, even if you're the type to do that sort of illegal thing, you'd think at the very least you'd learn/memorize the curves in your favorite road before racing on it. I also agree with many of the above, young kids with mom and pop's money getting into these cars with no respect for what they can do and/or other drivers.

P.S. I may 'only' be 29, but get off my lawn, stupid kids.

It is puzzling to me when I see young kids with high powered cars. Their parents obviously purchased the car for them. Bad idea. I would surely be dead if I was given an M3 at an age any younger than 20. I had a P.O.S. S10 pickup and thought I knew how to drive. I drove that thing like an idiot....
You know some kids can handle having a nice car. Others can't. Like this guy in the video. If you want to be driving like that take it to the track... Driver should be happy the car saved him. Don't do it again.

Not only is he endangering his life, but he's threatening the lives of innocent bystanders sharing the road with him.

What's up with all these douche e46 M3 videos lately?
LOL. I agree. I hope is doing alrgiht but it was a very irresponsible of him to drive that fast in a public road. If he wants to go fast take it to the track.
This is the reason I never go to the canyons again, so I don't run into douches like him.

Glad to see everyone got out okay!

PS ....

In 2005 a truck almost pushed me off the road over a cliff as I overtook him in my then 2002 e46 on a mountain road in British Columbia Canada. The e46 saved my life for it had the power to get me out off harms way in time. I put the paddle to the metal and leaned on my horn, that woke up the truck driver. I know this since I saw him in my rear view mirror trying to get his truck swaying back and forth back under control. I firmly believe my e46 saved the truck driver's and my life that day, for without that HP under the hood I and most likely the truck driver would have ended up over the rocky mountain cliff.

One of the main reasons I drive the M3 it has the power to get out of harms way.

I'm speachless...wow, I'm surprised the occupants walked away from the crash with "cuts & bruises". I'd call that more "dumb luck" in not hitting a massive boulder while rolling then BMW engineering saving their lives.
