i was driving from my house.. to go take my gf go-carting.. (btw this was like 3 weeks ago but ive been working so havent had a chance to post).. this modded integra flies by me.. so DUH.. i have fun with him.. catch up.. and then she whips out the camera as im trying to pass him.. btw i do NOT have Z tires. i went past him at 145+ ish while passing a blue civic too (i didnt even know e46 325i's could go that fast but apparently they can). then i slow down to about 75.. haha ironic that there was a cop on my right.. getting off the freeway as i was down to 75. then i saw the civic speed by, and i was nah im done.. so anyways i got up to my usual MPH.. which is 85.. and im like wtf... my back right tire i could feel went flat. so i got out to change it.. and O M G! it looks as if someone took a knife, and cut 2 inch slices every 3 inches of my tire. HEAT BURNS!!! i felt so bad that i coulda killed not only myself, but my gf and some of our other friends. although.. they didnt sweat it for.. some reason. anyways. until i get my z tires, im not doin over 100!! dont race w/o them! lol. the dumb sales lady said they came with z tires. she got hers about a week later. in her defense she said, "no that was for the premium 325ci" bitch u lied to me! lol i have it on video if anyone would like to see.. it's only the part where i pass the integra.

FULL car 2005 325i vs modded integra.. how did i even win?

This is why I never race with other people in my car. It's enough that I put myself in danger, but it's just being an ass to do it to others.

[ right click and save as]

ADMIN--- please move this to "video vault" if you would like. i am posting this video here as a reply to the thread.

No it's cool, didn't even see the download bar.

edit: something wrong with the vid, my player will not play it. What did you use to encode?

Well, it might not have been bad - as long as you keep speed constant, it is relatively easy to drive on a blown tire. Once you start varying your speed greatly, like by breaking or accelerating hard, then you will experience an incredible loss of control. So if you ever blow a tire... EASE off the throttle and don't break hard, you should be okay.
Are your rims okay?
Also, tsk tsk tsk for driving that fast on tires that aren't rated for it! You should check before you race... Don't trust a salesperson! Anyway, you lived and learnt instead of tried and died.
Anyway, though, does sound like you had fun, you passed the darwin test imo, go have some babies.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

dunno i have the latest divx. mine runs in windows media player.. it's just an AVI file.

my rims are fine btw. nothing wrong with them. ill take a pic when i have the chance (which means when i really feel like doing it.. so much trouble taking that tire out). for some reason my 05 came with a perfectly good tire as a spare.. it's not even a spare.. it's the exact same tire with rim.. so my car looks no different.

anyways. no more racing for me past 100 mph.. i think im gonna sell it anyways.. it's a 4 month old car.. came with 5 miles on it.. now it has 10047 miles.. i drive a lot for work. at that rate.. ill have 30000 miles by december. not good. gonna buy a crappy car and another bmw.. but ci this time.

btw what is darwin test? lol am i dumb for not knowing?

note to self: check tire ratings before achieving irresponsible velocities.
