My M3 E92 accident

This was my first E92 M3. This guy smiling in the pics jumped a stop street in a nice quite residential neighborhood.

Airbags gave me a nice burn on my arms and eyes. Didn't want the old car after that so sold it at a great loss and bought the 2009 DCT fully loaded.

Same as you chief, Alpine white, Coupe E92, Carbon roof,
black HRE P40's, etc etc

I think I posted this thread in the wrong section.... should have been general, however the suspension and brakes were damaged so I suppose its ok?

btw your car looks great!

What's he smiling at? And what's the story with that E90 next to your car. Did he push you into it?

This is a feature we don't get with BMW Assist in the States unfortunately.

I'm sure you are aware of the crime rate in SA, right? A lot of middle to upper class people hire security guards to protect them and their loved ones.

My guys were heavily armed in tactical bullet proof vests and were effective in eliminating crime in ares residents paid for us to be in.

I would be interested what you thought before the explanation above.
Thanks for doing the job of the (corrupted) cops. I have friends and family in SA and they are scared shitless every day until they found someone like you guys.

I would be beyond angry as well if that guy had that attitude as well after he hit my car. Maybe you should teach him a lesson and say your neck and back hurts. Some people only learn their lesson the hard way.

You're assuming they're as litigious in SA as they are in the US. I'm not sure it would work there.

It's because you are white and your ancestors forced themselves in Africa.

maybe hitting an M3 gets far more points than hitting a pedestrian or a pigeon?
