I was told there's a way to put your car in "valet mode". Like take the metal key out of the key fob and it limits speed/revs, distance it can travel, etc. I DID learn something today though: The steering wheel on the M4 is bigger than it is on the M3... According to this guy anyway

But yeah, not only is it disrespectful, not only is it stupid doing that in someone else's car, it's even more stupid to post a video on YouTube detailing your exploits. This dude needs to be fired. "Hinder my racing abilities" my ass, soak it up buddy, because with your intelligence level you'll never see cars like this again!

Typically a $20 on arrival will get you a front spot here in Cincinnati. Sometimes I toss another $10 upon leaving if They have it with some nice wide gaps between cars and open the door for my wife.

I would never valet my car. There is always another option: park on the street, take public transportation, etc. You have to be dumb to valet an M, no other way to put it (unless you don't give a crap about your car).

I always used to valet my F30 335i but even that I was cautious about. I lease, not that that is an excuse, since I always look after my cars.

That being said, I remember one of the first things I said to my wife after picking up the F80 was, "There'll be no way we are valeting this!"

I'm not so sure......

These bozos have a twitter account (@valetdrive - it is advertised on their youtube page)

Recent photos (such as this of another M4) suggest it snows where they live:



plenty of exterior shots of the hotel in their account, at least a few photos of plates (a personalized plate on a Mustang is clearly illinois, the others seem to be other NE states and/or DC (not living remotely near there, i dont identify the plates so quickly)

But with the exterior of the hotel...I gotta think it will be very possible to nail down exactly where these losers work and from there who they are (as they are dumb enough to appear on camera....even if the photos are not that great)

Ah ok. Looks like the entry tunnel at Standard. Was going to say though, that I didn't recognize them as any of the valets there.

Haha almost the same rule I live by!! Except if they have spots in the front where they can take the car and just park it. I would be willing to tip them up front.

+1 except the $100 thing, don't go to those places too much. But it is the start of Dine LA this week haha.

Wow, I would be PISSED! Hopefully the owner sees this and remembers the voice of the guy to identify him.

Here in downtown ATL you can usually get away with tipping $20 and sometimes they will let you park it up front yourself. Most nightclubs in the city have many exotics so I'm prepared to tip up to $50 up front or park it myself. It's a shame you have to do this.

I valet the M6 wherever valet is available and have them leave the car upfront (usually $20-25, sometimes $50 or $100 depending on the venue). I hate parking my cars next to other cars because idiots tend to just swing their doors wide open here and dent your car. As long as you have them park it upfront it's not a real problem as you will see them do it, sometimes you can even park it yourself and take the key with you.

Really...?

You know, I guess I'm not really surprised. I witnessed one guy peeling away in a parking garage. The sad thing is there's nothing you can do since there's really no damage done to the car. I'd be pissed to find 10 to 20 extra miles on my car. I even check my miles after dealer maintenance.

I have a dash cam set up in my car. I always watch it after service is done. I've caught a little abuse but nothing too bad, but usually the tone of the people is one of admiration. It's lawlz!

I will admit, I did laugh several times over at his ability to really present a car and its options.

Dude should have pretty much wrote the SAT and PSAT.
