Here is the story...

Author: resident smurf on 2004-07-20 at 03:31:20 (posted from: Host: dsl081-246-189.sfo1.dsl.speakeasy.net IP: 64.81.246.189)


Subject: well guys, it finally happened. wrecked my M3. (1198 views) (4766 thread views)

Message: hi guys, I no longer have an M3. it belongs to AAA now.

today was an awful day. my fantasy world is gone. destroyed.

i am really lucky to be alive right now. was heading up highway 35 twisties with a friend going too fast. hit some stuff, lost control, plowed into the side of a hill, and walked out of the crash alive.

it happened really quickly. i hit something in the road or some gravel or something that caused my rear end to slide, i went into some gravel couldn't stop and WHAM. i am not injured and neither is my friend, but I have burns from the airbag on my left arm and I am really shaken up. I do not know what to do. the impact was very quick.... I dont remember what happened... I remember feeling the airbag deploy and then I was in my seat... TYLER arey ou OK?! YEAH HOW ABOUT YOU? YEAH. jumped out of my car, and started walking. truck came by and I yelled HELP!!!!!!!!! and i looked at my car. and i didnt really believe it. it took an hour to finally hit me.

I do not think i can get another M3. its pretty much out of the question. my insurance rates are going to skyrocket. but I can tell you guys that you are very lucky to be driving your cars, and its very very very real what can happen to you when you crash. i cried and held what was left of my car and screamed in agony as the tow truck pulled my car out of the side of the hill scraping all the underside. the only things that I am left with are my front and rear license plates.... SMMMURF, and the experience that auto accidents are very real and to not jsut happen to other people. my god I miss it so much...... you guys drive very very very nice cars and for the time I had my M3 I never really appreciated it enough. I spent hours polishing it yes but I never really understood the beauty of hhavnig a car like that just worked on imporving its speed and appearance and not realizing that my car was so beautiful and so nice and so not worth it to wreck.

i am a very good driver. or at least i thought i was. I have driven twisties as long as I have been driving, but for the instant that I was skidding, I realized that it is not possible to risk your life and your car and everything and not finally get owned. I have driven highway 35 before... driven all these places before.... but it just takes one mistake and you end up M3 less like me. maybe i am a good driver, maybe I am not. what were the odds of wrecking my car today? probably pretty low. but that was enough to end up like i am now........

I feel terrible. i want to undo that so much. i am left with my STi but my license might be pulled or suspended or whatever. god. i dont even care anymore, i feel like being dead. but i now appreciate my life more, and when I can, if i ever can again, i will be back in the saddle of an M3.

guys, I want my M3 back so bad... I need your hlep and support I think because I am so heartbroken.

Sean

I think it's fair to say that he is an emotional mess... understandably.

Read well and take heed folks. Most importantly, Keep it safe.

First of all, Its good that you walked away from a crash from what speeds a M3 can reach so easly.

Wit that said take note to what CAN happen if you do push the envelope to much,
I am not saying at all that you were doing this in this case sounds like a jenuane accident with the gravel in the road or what ever you hit, most of all I think that you could be the most unluckest person on this board at the mo!!
and that sucks real bad!! espcially one M3 down now!!
well all I can say is shit happens even to the best of us so just look foward to the next M3 that could be in the future and remember the good times!!

Crap this isn't helping is it!! I think I may of just made the sitiation worse!!

good luck and keep it real

Yea, he has two very nice cars...THAT ARE HIS...A 05' STI and an ex-M3 (which by the way may still not be totaled) So we were driving and I said "wow, you have such a nice car, what do your parents have?"

"Oh they just have shitty cars, 760il, E55 AMG, and a SL500..."

Hmm....shitty cars

hmmm, i am HELLA confused.... who crashed whos car that belongs to whom? my advice is : go faster next time. jk, i know what its like to lose a car. I cried like a goddamn girl when i crashed my very first car. It was a 1600$ 89 325i but i loved it to death. I have come to believe poeple can feel for their cars as if they are part of the family, and react the same way(ie depression) when they lose something they care about... Your next m3 is right around the corner, and you will get another car, a car you will love even more, as you wont take it for granted. And your driving will always refelct this crash, as i am still terrified if i take a corner going to fast. crashes are tough, but you'll make it through brotha... good luck

Knowing the machinery parked in his driveway..... I've lost most of the sympathy I felt to start with.
