How to total 3 other cars with your M3!

Apparently, the driver plus his 12 year old son walked away unharmed.

This kind of accident doesn't happen when you go 30-35mph.

Agreed. Although it appears that the M3s are in quite a few accidents lately, there are many stories of drivers and passengers being unharmed. Looks like losing control of their cars is a catching disease though.

Small red car and black car were parked on the side of the road. M3 driver was hauling ass and lost control hitting the red car. As the red car hit the black car, the M3 slid up the side of the red causing it to flip over landing on the roof and sliding about 20ft hitting the blue car. He was moving fast enough to make the black car go about 30ft backwards after the red hit it.
Im thinking asshole is about right. Glad they are safe. Buy a Volvo now...

Maybe the guy was trying to entertain his daughter with an attempted BARREL ROLL!

This is the kind of crap that is going to send our insurance costs through the roof. Although was in NL, same story pretty much everywhere.

I'm with SehrSchnell - that's just irresponsible driving...

ESPECIALLY WITH YOUR 12yo IN THE CAR.

Who cares about the car... I wonder what his wife thinks.

Interesting read - from here: http://www.autoblog.nl/bmw-m3-richt-...n-in-hoogeveen

translated text :

An overconfident BMW M3 driver last night in Hoogeveen a battlefield caused at the Star Avenue. He managed to up to 3 cars total loss to get and 2 other damage. It appears once again that even in the north of the country or something happened.

The man sat with his 12-year-old son in the M3 (E90) , but miraculously they were not seriously injured. Although the M3 landed on its roof. It looks most like as if he was going bowling with cars in the street. All cars that were hit were parked just because.
It is therefore suspected that the man has driven too hard and of control is lost. It is striking that the accident took place at no more than about 100 meters from the beginning of the street, he has raised so hard. Also the story was soon revealed that the M3 last Saturday was traded in at a dealer. Perhaps an employee / owner of that company here wanted to play with an M3?

Wow, yes with the rash of M3 wrecks our insurance rates are only going to go higher and higher (I know this particular one isn't U.S. but several recent ones here have been and that was AFTER the talk of symbol changes for the M3 at places like USAA that were driving rates up significantly.)

So does our resale value go up or down when nobody can afford the insurance
