He must have hit that same patch of water the guy hydroplaned on yesterday. Fuck! That guy really needs to stop splashing water on the road. Causing so many accidents


lemmy4x4

That dude was hilarious. “There was water on the road so the car just crashed into a tree. So anyways insurance 🤷‍♂️ “


SilkyBowner

I wonder if he thinks the insurance company reads Reddit and needed to spout the lie to all of us. If you hydroplaned on sprinkler water, cars wouldn’t be capable of driving in the rain at any speed


Turb0charg3d

Don't these cars come with Pilot 4s, which are some of the best street tires for wet roads?


SilkyBowner

Lol someone brought that up and he still doubled down on the wet roads


oldboycrunk

Was that the guy that some how lost control "cruising" at 55? Thought this was the same guy


deepfriedpandas

Yup. Same guy also claimed that going 155 in a 45 is normal. I guess those roads never have sprinklers, or any bit of moisture at all.


Right_In_The_Tits

I saw that comment and it was clearly sarcasm. I will be ashamed if I just got wooshed


All-In-The-Details

The same dude who said he had his friend driving behind him as well lol. I know I’d be showing off my M3 at least and not cruising 🤷🏻‍♂️


Francis_Dollar_Hide

"I was only doing 10Mph over the limit in a car thats new to me with the traction control off in sport mode 🤷‍♂️"


NG260602

He had traction control on since he was on cruise control apparently


Francis_Dollar_Hide

Let me just stoke my imaginary beard here for a while. Hmmmmmm.


NG260602

Yeah he’s full of shit and doesn’t deserve to drive a car that powerful at such a young age. Inexperience kills people


Mittianski

Also while snorring some coco if you look at some of his posts


RedRageXXIV

I saw his post, complete lying sack of shit. Source - Am insurance broker.


stevied05

Oh yeah and he was using cruise control on a main road which is totally normal.


freshmasterstyle

Aquaplaning is a thing. But the crashed m4, at least one ugly car less on the road


p3ek

It's likely oil leaks on the roads from other drivers, bmws are made to be driven hard and start to leak oil if you don't drift them on public road weekly


senditfordale3

Have never drifted mine, still leaks oil lol. It is a feature not a bug.


06E46M3GTR

The only reason it doesn't leak is because it's empty


BoxofCurveballs

It's actually an intended design element and feature. An exec from the company said that our machines only deserve the best for the ultimate driving experience and by having new Flow-Thru oil systems you never need to worry about changing your old oil out, because there will always be fresh oil in cycling through the car.


Justgetmeabeer

I've always called jt bmws "active oil renewal" feature.


SiljaEuropa

I drifted mine...and ended up down an embankment. But it was leaking oil before that.


SiljaEuropa

> bmws are made to be driven hard and start to leak oil if you don't drift them on public road weekly 🤣


ChineseWeebster

this, I was going to say maybe it's the same driver


GeraldJ19

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


el-conquistador240

He should have never traded in the mustang


Nero_Wolff

Hey now This was a test drive so the driver still got to go home in his mustang. His reign of destruction isn't over

Cars an coffee and crashes

Don’t drink and drive, lol


iKoalas

I love this comment, especially given all the videos of mustangs mowing down crowds.


Think_Tax5749

Lol


GetMeABaconSandwich

So the dealership installed the "drift happens" sticker? odd.


Unspec7

Last time this was posted, someone did some digging and found that it's not the same two cars.


tommysupply

Literally says "BMW Experience" on a passanger door. This car is or I should say was exclusively driven by potential clients to test before making their mind to buy it or not


NightFuryToni

You would think dealers keep their tire pressure in check...


meateatr

Alright thank you, I'm done here, I can rest easy tonight.


KeepItTidyZA

im sure his mind is now made up. Very much leaning towards not buying that car


toolateforgdusername

Is it common for a dealer to stick "BMW Experience" on a car for test driving. Here in the U.K they might have one car with a X.X% APR in big letters but it won't be one that's driven. It will be a base model 118i in the show rome. Any testing will be done with normal looking or Approved Used cars.


tricky_p

First video appears to be from the height of a car. Second video appears to be taken from something higher… Dashboards also look different… And the drift happens a sticker… Seems odd


tommysupply

Bruh, yes ofcourse its captured by two different people in two different cars. First part is filmed in a city area before crash and the other one is filmed by random person driving by afterwards. It is very unlikely you will see G22 M4 in the streets so everybody is taking pictures or filming it


TheSimpleOne21

Especially in Lithuania there are a lot of Porsches but m4s and this colour? I would highly doubt it


toolateforgdusername

You sir, are correct - I don't think these are the same car.


BBQ-Dog

Bmw puts them on presscars and showcars.


Cha-Car

The car says “BMW Experience” on the door. Way to go, dumbass!


js2066

Repair bills are a big part of the "BMW Experience"


adrianzimmer

that things totaled. I sure hope he paid the extra $50 to lower the insurance excess otherwise they'd be forking out $3500


SiljaEuropa

Painful truths.


vijjer

Well, it's a very realistic experience of ownership.


Dr__Ed

Was this driven by the same kid who lied about crashing his F82 M4? Edit: For those wondering https://www.reddit.com/r/BMW/comments/pob4e2/lost_control_in_my_m3_in_less_than_a_week_of/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf


Mister_Poopy_Buthole

Lmao I was just thinking about that kid too


Urdreamin

F80 M3 though, still a dumbass.


KOJSKU

Thats in florida this is Lithuania


vvan8

This and the other post just proves everybody wants an M, but not everybody can handle one.


yay-go

I’m happy with my 320…. For now


JuiceeDropTop

N51 gang


Nero_Wolff

While I don't own an M, i do own a car with equal performance and power to an M. And honestly im convinced all these crash videos are of people turning traction control off and then trying to show off In our modern age of performance cars its honestly difficult to mess up like this. I would have to be intentionally trying to drift in order to mess up this bad


AxiusNorth

Anyone with a modicum of common sense can drift the car in MDM mode, which will sort it out if you fuck up. There is __literally__ no reason to turn the TC fully off to drift it on the road. I guess that's the reason though. These people have no common sense.


Alarming_Cantaloupe5

I’ve driven lots of cars….but definitely give my M2c respect. MDM mode is as nanny free as I get until I can get some track time to really learn the car. A “moment” on a course can easily be tragic on the public roads.


Ubertev

What is MDM?


Alarming_Cantaloupe5

M Dynamic Mode. Basically lets the car get a bit more rowdy before traction control reels things in.


SiljaEuropa

> Anyone with a modicum of common sense can drift the car in MDM mode, which will sort it out if you fuck up. There is literally no reason to turn the TC fully off to drift it on the road. Heck, some of us can lose control even with MEM enabled.


nfusiion

Driver is 18 years old, fresh outta driving school. This happened in my country. Crazy.

"Traction control? Oh yeah, just press and hold that DSC button for a few seconds and you're good to go."


Cassiopeia78

Damn idiot

tire pressures must've been off by a ~~couple~~ 1.5 psi


Deathclawslayer272

Excuse my language but what a fucking idiot, how could you do that to a car like that.

I know right they should just give the car to me instead.

People try to drive more car than their skill could handle?


NebraskaViking

Front end looks better after, ngl


Nagoda94

My thought exactly


sparksjet

Came here for this.


vijjer

Fuck the M4 and it's driver. A good w212 with proper maintenance records has emotional value. I'm sure this puke green douchebag just wrote that car off. Some people are begging for corporal punishment.


iwasinfightclub

How is that a test drive with that bumper sticker


zultdush

Used?


iwasinfightclub

Damn they just came out


zultdush

I dunno, weird sticker for sure!


SlipTek_

Pretty nice improvement to the new buckteeth grill 🤣 KIDDING....


realShannaX

At least he made the crash test in the same session…


samcar330

And that's how to ruin your insurance.


HerLegz

Typical more dollars than sense. It's a shame the system rewards this.


Rosssseay

Seems like his "BMW Experience" was low and should continue to be looking at the mess he made.


wolframAPCR

That's OK, the grille looks better that way


Migg2099

The Traction Control must have been off bc this is crazy that M has way too much grip to do this.


starbot1

You really think you need the TC off to break lose in a M4??


Migg2099

Technically no but the amount of damage he has done?! That makes no sense, I test drove a G80 and an F80 the difference in how the rear wants to turn is not comparable at all. The G8x is well grounded as it takes some force and effort to drift and mess up. The F8x wills it and doesn’t mind being thrown around. This person had to be really have a lot off/on in order to lose control like that.


IamAFlaw

I never had an M4 but my BMW refuses to spin the wheels with traction control. It will let them spin if I press the DTC button a bit but it limits how much power is going to the wheels, and then kicks in if my drift is too aggressive, I think it goes by front wheel traction and/or angle. If I press and hold DTC to disable all driving assists, it just lets loose like a mad fucking animal, it doesn't limit ANYTHING and will let me kill myself.


starbot1

I have to believe you because I’m such a pansy driver (540xi). I’ve never lost traction so that adds to your theory.


IamAFlaw

Yeah traction control kicks in instantly. Even on ice, I can floor the car and it won't really spin the wheels and slowly accelerates at the traction limit. I'm sure it's slipping a tiny bit but I can't even feel it.


badcat_kazoo

At least the front end looks better now


Frankie_T9000

Underrated comment


riV3rwulf

See how he took out the other pos’ too


Smexiosis

The M4 actually looks better when it's totalled than when its new.


Asstronaut585

These stupidly high HP flashy new electronic ridden cars are so fucking stupid. A hot wheel toy designed to appeal to people with the maturity of a 11 year old Get a real fucking sports car with a real chassis, with a stick (oh my, maybe driving stick will have people pay attention to what they are doing and crash less” This is the reason the sports car market is nearly dead. BMW could have kept making works of art but by numbers there are more idiots out there who want a fast luxury auto car that drives, handles, brakes for them lol and is SUCH a coool color omg isa foriegnnn… you’d have to be a fucking idiot to buy this car can have more fun in a 1.8L Lotus than you could comprehend in a F80 and most people will never know that


Strangexj86

You really don’t like bimmers.


Asstronaut585

I own a e46 zhp black brown leather interior lol Once again idiots being presumptive on Reddit The theme never fucking stops

Why the tirade then?

Well. That’s all folks!!

This goes to show you some people shouldn’t drive at all! What a moron!


lit0dog

Holding onto the wheel.


Dzerpa

All German cars


MrFrancastic

Zoinks


squarebe

They should install that little plastic pull out circuit blocker like in battery operated toys so test drivers shouldnt have access to sport settings and would apply a speed limiter too. The moment you paid they pull it out and there you go, its yours to break.


Thertor

And he exclusively hit other German cars.


Manfred_89

Since when do test drive vehicle have stickers on them?


HelloSummer99

drift happened


SouthernYooper

Damn, what an asshole


krilauris

He is 19 years rich dad kid. Don't worry. Police didn't saw anything suspicious and just made all cars owners to fill insurance papers. So no lesson for him, just lot of expenses for insurance company.


MPower569

Why is this always the default lol? 19yo kid ect. I think you're just jelly your dads poor and you're poor and you can't buy an M4


krilauris

Dude, I live where he crashed that car. I know it.


ectbot

Hello! You have made the mistake of writing "ect" instead of "etc." "Ect" is a common misspelling of "etc," an abbreviated form of the Latin phrase "et cetera." Other abbreviated forms are **etc.**, **&c.**, **&c**, and **et cet.** The Latin translates as "et" to "and" + "cetera" to "the rest;" a literal translation to "and the rest" is the easiest way to remember how to use the phrase.

s0uly

I don't understand how people do this? I've slammed my F82 hard sometimes but I never lost control like this. He definitely must have his traction control turned off.


whatwhasmystupidpass

“Yeah hun, I think it’s the one with the LSD”


Think_Tax5749

It can’t be a test drive with a shit happens sticker on the bumper, unless it’s a friend’s car . Are they still friends?


bcdiesel1

He was just trying to take out his other German rivals.


Think_Tax5749

That will buff out


Think_Tax5749

Two separate cars, don’t see the drift happens on the rear bumper of the wrecked vehicle


Pure-Bench8743

Lol This thread should just be renamed “r/PeopleBuyNewBmws&PeopleCrashNewBMWs” 🤷🏽‍♀️. The disrespect!


Schaefer44

My 435i feels like more than enough power already, i couldn't even imagine driving something like an M. I would want to take some kind of class on how to drive them before I bought one, for fear of this exact scenario hah.


anon0110110101

Looks like drift happened.

Rich kid?

r/thatlookedexpensive


christophertit

If he’s that bad in a baby M can you imagine him in a proper car like an M5? Lol


HeavyHands

M4 is not a baby M.


christophertit

Sure it is. The M5, M6 and M8 are the big boys. Once you drive them an M3 or M4 feels like a toy.


HeavyHands

The cars generally referred to as baby M's were the 1M, 1st gen M2 pre-S55 engine and occasionally the M2C.


christophertit

Yup, I just include the m3 and m4 too. Maybe daily driving a 750bhp M5 competition pack for 4yrs changed my opinion on them. They just don’t feel very special to me anymore and more of an entry level M option.


popcornlungs69

we get it your rich now go put it back in your show room and build a 750whp e46 and appreciate the big E


christophertit

You don’t need to be rich to drive what I drive, if anything my M5 made me pretty poor lol. I like my toys and technology too much to go back to old school cars again. I’ve had my fun with those already!


zookansas

Old school cars huh...isn't yours going on 5 years?


christophertit

No, I have a 3 month old F90 now (sold my 750bhp 2014 CP car). Placeholder for a 911 turbo s that I’m hoping to order next spring.


arsmitty86

I have driven a lot of fast cars. The rule I’ve come to appreciate is for daily driving on the street anything more than 4-500hp is for your ego not for an appreciable experience difference. On a track I might understand but just to drive daily what you’re saying is silly.


christophertit

What am I saying exactly in your opinion? I got bored with 750bhp and wanted more, but the F10 platform wasn’t too great to chase big power figures. I can genuinely say that I used 100% of that power almost each and every time I took the car out. You get used to what you have. There’s no upper limit to what is drivable on the streets.


arsmitty86

Lol there is an absolute limit to what is drivable on the streets RESPONSIBLY. If you used 100% of the cars capabilities on public roads you 100% broke all sorts of laws. That’s my point.


christophertit

Ofc I broke speeding laws. Everyone does. They are archaic laws from the 1960s that were put into place when cars had no safety equipment and drum brakes. It’s just a revenue stream. We’ve come a long way since then. Are you virtue signalling and pretending you never speed?. The new Tesla plaid makes my old M5 seem slow in comparison (at least till 150mph or so) but they are the future of the automotive world. We’ll all be driving 1000+bhp cars before long I’m sure. You get used to what you have. If you had a 700-1000bhp daily driver you put tens of thousands of miles on each year, you’d feel the same way.


arsmitty86

No, I’m not saying I don’t speed. But if you’re hitting triple digits in the us on a regular basis you are an asshat and it will be funny when you lose your license. Either you’re a troll, or you really are just a dickhead. Either way can’t reason with the unreasonable. Have a lovely evening.


il_vincitore

Idk where you live but there are still plenty of people here who prove why those laws exist. There’s a difference between speeding on the highway when it’s empty on a weekend morning, and speeding at night or off the highways too. Probably many people speed a bit but they also know not to do certain things and routinely pushing it is less desirable. There’s something they say about bikers that also applied to reckless driving. There’s those who have gone down and those who will. Your record so far doesn’t mean shit when you decide to push it a bit at the wrong time.


baconandbobabegger

How Noble, M12 is for the big boys. Once you drive one, an M5 feels like a toy.

christophertit

Never driven a competition pack car have you. There’s a reason all other supersaloons are benchmarked against them.


[deleted]

[удалено]


christophertit

An M5 competition pack will sit with an M3/M4 on the right track. There also isn’t much between them weight wise if you’re being pedantic. An M3 is a very overweight saloon too under those metrics. If you want something with proper driving dynamics get a single seater. Anything with more than one seat or that weighs over 600kg is compromised.


[deleted]

[удалено]


christophertit

You’d be surprised how close they are if you actually knew anything about these cars. F1 cars only weigh as much as they do due to regulations. I have a 300bhp westfield that weighs 550kg for example with two seats that will annihilate any saloon or hatch on a track. This was a heavy jahre edition on a tight track. On a sweeping track with longer straights this could have went either way. Now imagine that a couple of hundred kg lighter with an extra 150bhp on decent tyres and the ceramic brakes option. https://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/m4/15442/bmw-m4-vs-bmw-m5-evo-deadly-rivals https://youtu.be/2_s4PnHyQCs
