Wwwooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

That was me last night around 2AM (Coming back from Phili) heading North on 295 couple miles south of the RT70 exit. So I was driving no more than 60 MPH (Everyone was flying by me) cuz it was Raining Ice/Sleet I guess is what its called (I'm new up North), all of a sudden the rear end of the car slid out close to 90* turning me towards the median, I took my foot off the accelerator and brakes Corrected and it swung me around almost 180* facing the complete opposite direction, I corrected...and it did this NO JOKE like 5 or 6 times gradually getting less and less as aggressive. I'm kinda used to driving through hydroplaning situations because I come from S. Florida (scary no matter where you are), but I gotta Say Ice makes you feel a lot more helpless.

I can only imagine what the other people on the road were thinking when they saw my headlights go left, right, left, right, left, right lol!

Now I know why everybody swaps these tires out for better cold weather ones.

And Yes I did Clean my seat when I got home...you would have shit too!

CANT WAIT TO GO TO M School and learn more cool tricks!

Wow! Good thing I got home a little before 1am! I was at that exact Rt 70 location a little over an hour earlier..... My M is less than a week old. I would have lost it.

Scary story! Luckily the NJ roads haven't been too bad this winter (with the exception of the snow storm we're expecting tonight). You might want to think about some snow tires for the winter setup. Glad you (and the M3) are alright.

Wow you sound like a heroic driver! But yeah, if you're going to drive it all winter even during some sleety rain, I'd highly suggest winter tires.
