it was a red light.. turned green ... i took a left, it was raining ... car lost traction... car went on grass... from there i really lost control.. then you see the picture.. owners of the house were rude, they didn't even offer me coffee... it was 7:20 am, all my older cars had better traction, but since this one had tons of miles when i got it, most probably traction wasn't working good on it

Bummer Crowz, but this is why we take baby steps into the ///M. Even the power in the 325 can be surprising, especially when wet. Glad everyone is OK.

Congrats Thumprxl, with the hardtop too...love the hardtop. All three of mine have had it, wouldn't have it any other way...

I'm gonna say that shouldn't happen if your traction control was on.
How are the tires, were they bald?
Rtab any good. No way that should happen. Unless you just can't drive.

Thanks @mynewrag... I agree! Although she's garaged at home, work is a different story and winters here can be brutal!! Got any good tips for the long storage time the rag is down in the trunk?

My first ragtop came from a little old lady, a 94 E36 325. She had the hard top on in the winter and only drove it on dry days in the summer, she said the soft top probably only came out 20 times in her 14-15 years of ownership. Top was nearly flawless. The plastic window in the E36 was a different story though. So, with that said, I do nothing special, just make sure you don't leak in there, and always put it away dry. You might check it once or twice mid winter after hard rain just to make sure all of the drains are draining properly and your soft top is not sitting in a puddle. Clean and dry, that's it.

My hardtop goes on roughly in October and comes back off in April. I will pop it off a few times when we get that occasional surprise day.
