122 and he survived the crash ?

It sounds like free advertising for a well built, well designed car.

It's amazing to me that a non M E46 is such a beautiful car but the E46 M has never done much for me.

I think all the charges are reasonable. I actually hope he does gets charged with at least one of the felonies.

I don't mind street or freeway rack g but driving while drunk is the ultimate selfish act.. Bac of .17 and you are 200x more susceptible to crashing than when sober..

My Ride: What else?
happened down the street from me yesterday.....it occured to me right away that it might be a fanatic, but I dismissed it due to the speed (alleged)

you have to be really sh!tfaced to go that fast on Slaughter, it's a 2 lane road with houses and businesses left and right....plus back to back traffic lights

His passenger is extremely lucky, another genius did the same thing a few months ago in a Mustang, and ended up killing the passenger, then fleeing the scene.

7-10 beers aren't realy going to make you drunk (intoxicated, yes, drunk, no) when spread over an entire evening. All depends on in what timespan he drank those beers.
