They need to have valet mode in cars now since cars are mostly drive by wire. Valet mode should limit the max speed to 30mph, RPM to 3000 max, and drop the speed to 15mph if the car is driven more than 2 miles.

I'll echo what many people say... not because I have some crazy valuable car (hell, I like it, and its paid for so efF you lol). But my main thing is I just don't want a strange person in my car.

Talking "Ok... i'll go, i'll go, i'll go..."

Cameron: [Cameron lying in bed underneath covers] Very little.

This is one of the reasons why I installed 2 hidden cameras in my M5. I think the community needs to come together and teach this kid a lesson.

Thumbs up Ferris Buellers Day Off Ferrari Scene

Classic!

Cameron: The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.
Ferris: It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.

Cameron: Ferris, my father loves this car more than life itself.
Ferris: A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn't deserve such a fine automobile.
[Ferris caresses the car in admiration]
Cameron: No. No! Apparently, you don't understand!
Ferris: [ignoring Cameron] Wow.
Cameron: Ferris, he never drives it! He just rubs it with a diaper!

Ferris: Don't worry about it, I don't even have a piece of shit. I have to envy yours.
Cameron: Oh, thanks.

Cameron: [Ferris slowly pulls the Ferrari out of the garage] No! Ferris, forget it! You're just gonna have to think of somethin' else. I'm puttin' my foot down.
[Ferris keeps driving]
Cameron: How bout we rent a nice Cadillac? My treat! We could call a limo! A nice stretch job with a TV and a bar! How 'bout that?
Ferris: [Ferris pulls the car back slightly] Come on! Live a little!
[Cameron crosses himself, walks to the car]

Cool What aren't we going to do?

Sloane: What are we going to do?
Ferris: The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
Cameron: Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home.
Ferris: [to the camera] If you had access to a car like this, would you take it back right away?
[beat]
Ferris: Neither would I.

I looked over at his channel and it seems he engages in this type of buffoonery with every car he is trusted with. I usually don't have any ill wishes for anyone but this guy struck a nerve with me. The community needs to find this guy, expose him, and make an example out of him. Any members in this area willing to visit the hotel that was identified in the video and finding the guy and exposing him to his manager?

I think I found the car's VIN. Anyone who works at BMW want to notify the owner?

From what we can see in the video:

It's Apline White
Sakhir Orange interior(not full)
DCT
non-carbon brakes
silver/ferric 19" wheels
has a reverse camera
no moonroof
carbon fiber interior
LED headlights
no surround view

I get 7 cars that fit this description.

On their Twitter they posted a photo where the partial plate is visible



I checked all those VINs using AutoCheck and only one car is from a state where the plates are white with black characters. It's from the state of Maryland.

The only issue I got is that Maryland requires a front plate and the car on the video doesn't have one.

Angry Ferris Bueller's Day Off Ferrari Milage

[the guys just notice the "additional miles" on the car]
Ferris: [to the audience] Here's where Cameron goes berserk.
Cameron: Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!
[Cameron's screams can be heard all across Chicago]

Nice work, but I think they are 2 different M4s (or at least the picture and video are from different times)

The video starts at the top of the parking garage and it is still summery (green leaves, etc). The photo is on a snowy/wintery day.

....could be same car on 2 different days though.

(edit: and from my review of the 'how many times pulled over' thread, I think about 90% of M drivers on this forum don't use a front plate where required (ok, I am very high on that number, I know but still...) so if it is the same car, Maryland would seem to fit- right geographic area, etc)

What other states did your VIN searching pull down?

You killed the car.

Cameron: [while kicking his father's car] Who do you love? Who do you love? You love a car!

Cameron: What'd I do?
Ferris: You killed the car.

Cameron: I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I'm going to take a stand. I'm going to defend it. Right or wrong, I'm going to defend it.

Trying to identify it.

Thus far, best guess is it is in or around D.C.....

You are right, it's not the same car. M4 in the photos has black wheels.

Other plates are: CA, NY, FL

Here is a video of them going go-karting in Jessup, Maryland.



That hotel must be somewhere in DC

Holy shit that's some awesome detective work. A member here form BMW please use that VIN and find the owner. Some members have recognized the parking space as that of the Standard Hotel. These guys need to get caught. It's clearly a habit for them to make these stupid videos of other people's belonging while on the job. And the way he was driving that M4 through that garage was damn near vandalism.
