the gd thing is everyones OK, how did the wheel fly off? did the lugnuts break?

I once took a car to get a tire change and they forgot to screw in the nuts, luckly the wheel fell off at the stop sign. funny seeing my rear tires row past the front of the car

Im sorry for the confusion - the tyre itself got an immediate pressure lost a 150km/h a big bolt on the street got in the tyre - the wheel did not flew off - glad that I caught the car.

Luckily theres no other damage - just some rubber on the rear bumber.

another question : what do you guys think of angel eyes on the E46 today ?

The reason is that mine are making problems from time to time (flickering, different brightness) - so Im thinking of putting them out and not to replace them.

Are they really so "90s" ?
