looks like you rubbed up against a guard rail or another car? there doesnt seem to be a point of heavy impact though.

i'm fine, well i was going out of an exit to the freeway had my M button on and DSC off and my tires weren't in a good shape slippery on 2nd and 3rd when DSC is on imagine when the DSC is off :S
i was on 3rd as soon as entered the freeway i hit the gas shifting to 4th i felt the slipping toward the concrete tried to control it a bit and i end up hitting back tire and front tire.
thank god i didn't go all the way into the concrete

jeeze that set off your side curtain airbags? Body isnt terrible but what is the suspension damage up front?

Ive learned throughout the last few years that DSC is your friend. Glad your okay.

Glad youre OK - whats wrong with MDM mode for road driving....90% of the fun you can have with DSC fully off but with that safety net should you need it - might have saved you're car in this case, hope you get it sorted out quickly and get back to enjoying your car

take driving lessons before taking dsc off on public roads. don't forget you are endangering others as well.

RWD+400+hp car should be handled with care if you are not comfortable handling snap-on oversteer and opposite lock.

Painful and expensive mistake; you should be thankful it was only you, and that it wasn't any worse. Lesson learned, right? Take care.

DSC off on the street is a mistake IMO.

I also learned the hard-way, crashed my E46 M3 vert into a ditch with DSC off. Took the corner wayy too hard, rear tires slid out and rolled into a ditch. $18K worth of damages, definitely learned my lesson that DSC OFF is not for the amateur.

DSC ON 24/7/365 = FTW

Glad you are ok.

Was that car a US Spec? You are in Kuwait and I see reflectors on your bumper.

Well I think it's safe to say that car is a write-off. On the bright side, you can get the competition package on your new one
