No, showing us BMW owners why we made the right choice not to buy the Benz.

lol its funny to see you call Junior a douche. Im sure you feel quite big now.

Junior feels the same way when he's constantly winning championships and whatnot. Junior S. FTW

lol anyways, quite surprised to see a benz on fire. I'd rather see an audi catch on fire, personally. Whats that logo on the merc? it looks like a loaner car (has numbers in white on it)

Pretty cool of the OP to grab a fire extinguisher and go help. However LOTS of Fail here on everyone's part:
If this would have happen here in the States, people would have sat on their hands and shot video from the iphones
Smoke is coming from under/inside the cab, firefighters not focusing.
How many firefighters does it take to open hood?
One of the firefighters is "hanging" talking with the chic of the car 3ft away from a burning car....? Fail!! <maybe he was asking her out on a date>
Finally the hood is up
Oh, O the hood fire blanket did its job(by the way, BMW has done away with this item....cost cutting)
Firefighters, hmmm....no fire here, lets lay fire suppression in side the cab....DUH

Are you serious? He's obviously just making a joke. Do you really think he would be posting in the same tone had someone been injured/killed?

Lighten up.

From the second picture, we see the taxi cab web site name: Atax.nl, which is the Netherlands. Also, the prices shown at the Shell station are in Euros.

This thread is too funny. Looks like the Merc was a taxi, maybe they forgot to check the coolant. I like the pic where you are pointing to the extinguisher, you should put it on facebook

And I don't need to lighten up, i'm 20. Everything is hilarious to me.
I honestly don't see what is funny about this though. To take pictures of someones misfortunes and post it on the internet?


Only on a BMW forum i guess.
