Pretty much. Zero respect... but it's E46OT.

You know what I just realized? The kid had the car for 3.5 years! With zero speeding tickets on record. You know what, I'm going to have to give this kid the benefit of the doubt. Didn't bother doing the math earlier. I think he did an admirable job keeping things under control for so long. That's a damn shame.

No excuse for the bro not to go to college and the friends to keep skipping class though. Their parents worked hard to give them opportunities and they're just throwing it in the gutter.

I wish! I read your pump DIY when my thermostat broke, and posted in the thread asking some questions, but no M3, only a 325CI. Still driving it, too (that was about a year ago. I did go ahead and replace the pump as well as the thermostat).

I didn't do the expansion tank at the time (did pretty much everything but that and the radiator), but I went ahead and ordered one the other day.

Anyway, an M3 is in my future, but it may be a few years if my wife and I have a second kid. Maybe I'll get a used E92 or something once my wife's Q5 is paid off.

I beg to differ. It's not the price of the car that is the issue. If, for example, it had been something expensive but not as powerful, say a new Land Rover or something, I don't think you'd see the same reaction.

Same thing goes for a sportbike. You can get a liter sportbike for less than a Toyota Corolla, but what would you think of parents that gave their kid a YZF R1 for his high school graduation present?

As for the people talking about him not getting tickets, unfortunately, this accident perfectly fits the pattern of young, reckless drivers: powerful car, young kid, multiple friends in the car, middle of the night (4 in the morning), and speeding. He wasn't even on the highway; that bridge has multiple lights at each end.

but the fact that he owned this car from ages 18-22 without speeding tickets, doesn't that tell you that he's demonstrated some ability to avoid peer pressure or general recklessness--with the M5?

No, just means he wasn't caught by the police.

^ respect to a kid who has the road awareness and sense to be able to do that for 3.5 years at a very young age.

Regardless of whether he was a reckless kid all the time or just made one fatal mistake, it's sad to see a young person die in a wreck. RIP.

^ Sad but thats what happens when you give a over powering machine to some one who probably lacks the ability to operate it properly. This is a good time for his parents to think about the mistake they made. Its not about the fact that they got him the car but the carelessness to hand the keys over like he is Fernando Alonso. He should have gotten some professional lessons on a track with an instructor to prevent him from ending up dead.

If you look at my other post in this thread you will find the reason I don't drive recklessly

yeah but not everyone received the benefit of your experience, so the majority would still need to learn the hard way...

You guys gotta relax, I knew the guy and and know his family. I see a strong amount jealous haters in this thread. I am sure all the guys in here always follow the speed limit and always uses the turn signals. We all make stupid mistakes especially when we are young. This could have happened in a M5, 525i or a civic.

But really some of the comments in this thread are disgusting. Especially you "fergo the mule", "The drivers seat is Imola"? Really dude, please grow up you stupid ******. I can only hope that one day someone VERY CLOSE to you crashes and dies due to speeding/poor judgement and I can't wait to see your reaction. No one cares you drove your dads **** AMG at age 16, I am sure you went fast in it, trying to act like a saint by claiming you followed all the rules must make you feel like a real big bad ass online. Grow up.
