Re: Teens crash two BMWs while street Raceing

My teenage son says the 330 i is his when he can drive I just laugh and tell him he would kill himself in it . When he is grown we can talk about passing it down

A $50k e36, huh? Can you imagine if they were in a used $5k camaro instead?

A $50k e36 consists of an e36 with $45k in the trunk right?

I wasn't trying to knock the e36s. It's probably my favorite bodystyle, but they just aren't $50k cars, even new only the m3 was over that. People just see the badge and think it's expensive.

Stupid teenagers like this make the rest of us look bad. I've had my BMW since 16, I'm now 20, no issues. I guess it depends on the maturity of some people. This is why car insurance charges teens so much!

Hmmm says the article is no longer available. But on the link it says NBC Bay Area so I would guess this was most likely reckless driving rather than street racing. I say this because I'm in the street racing scene and have only seen like 1 BMW that actually races and makes pretty good power with his turbo setup.
