Wink PDC + gust o' wind = heart attack

Was backing out of the parking area today, between two vehicles, and limited visibility. Going pretty slow, looking over the shoulder (top-down), and glancing back and forth at the Park Distance Control screen.

It's a sunny day here (Houston) with seriously heavy wind gusts.

The rear end of the car just gets out between two other vehicles and I'm glancing at the PDC screen when it goes completely filled-up with green, yellow, red and beeps like a plane is crashing on my head.



No... just wind being picked up by the sensors.

Holy Frak!

I thought some gigantic Suburban was about to flatten me.

Didn't know the PDC sensors were that good.

Now off to take a Valium....

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

It's not the wind.

Imagine having that happen the first time you use the PDC after parking your car covered in snow....not fun from what my friend tells me!

It was the ghost of an AMG driver kicking your bumper.
