That's alright. He's Usain Bolt. He can purchase another one, or repair the damage sustained on this second M3.

Well let's be honest here, BMW gave him an M3 for free and of course he accepted the gift but recently I heard him speaking about how he purchased a Nissan GTR ( not for free) and it is his daily drive car and he is very happy with it, he also mentioned how fast this car is and how safe he feels on it. After hearing and seeing this I immediately thought on how bad top shots at BMW are feeling after giving him an M3 for free and now Mr Bolt is is no longer in love with M3 but with GTR, lol.

Logical? Why? What attributes of a top sprinter should 'logically' translate into his being a good driver?

How can you be sure of that? That's simply ridiculous. You weren't there and the people with the breathalyser say there wasn't.

I agree with some in that this thread has already been overdone. I have merely imparted my opinion for the purpose of an educated debate, obviously not everyone will agree, however, what's worse is when posters comment without actually reading the whole thread. So, please read the thread to see why I think a top athlete should, in theory, be a good driver, apart from the responsibility of being a role model.

If he crashes a few more, he may actually may put the E92 M3 on the endangered species list. Strange to hunt cars for sport.

Oh lawd he got into 2 accidents in 3 years. Big fucking deal. The comments in this thread amaze me. And it's not like he's crashing a handmade, limited production exotic - its a 3-series.

It's more like 2x 3 series (1.5 of them if you're going by loaded-loaded), but other than that I agree with your post.

Lol @ "beautiful cars". Really? The Lamborghini Miura is beautiful. Is that an appropriate description of the M3? Lmao.

Overdone is an understatement and particularly coming from one who could logically be designated overdoer-in-chief in the context.

The Miura is elegant and beautiful. The M3 is simply beautiful, but in a well-toned "Gabby Reece" way. The Miura is more like a 1950-60s Liz Taylor and Ann Margaret.

IMHO..... There are two type of accidents ones you could have avoided, the others are the ones you couldn't.

Let's be honest here both he could have avoided. Unless the second accident someone backed into him. Or the first maybe he swurved to avoid a goat crossing the street. All speculation by me.

Accidents can happen to anyone but mi boy Bolt needs to show restraint.

No one cares really. It's just a bit of M3 news. He can buy another.

Overdoer I may be, but I do like to debate and discuss my opinions in detail, and I don't see anything wrong with that.

"Beautiful" is such a strong word. I see the M3 as a very masculine, handsome vehicle.

Usain Bolt....

Quick in a straight line, doesn't handle the corners.
