I just think the generalizations are comical and getting under these losers skin is even more comical.
Generalizations are comical, yet you throw out several silly claims of racism, infidelity and financial irresponsibility that are the result of advancing age. Insurance companies would disagree with you on the automobile safety aspect. Accidents from drivers under 23 are disproportionately high as compared to the 30 to 50 crowd.

Hoping you find peace in your quest to get under crusty people's skin. Turn that desire for conflict into love brother.
All people all growing up to be wise was actually the generalization. Those things I stated were evidence to the contrary.

I spread plenty of love. But I also call out idiotic claims that are spreading misinformation.

Sorry, guess I was mistaken. I feel the love you're spreading. So, it's more of a tough love that you deliver with a firm hand?

Hopefully that's not your plan for your future.
I'm not young at all and I have kids. I just don't make assumptions about situations without any evidence or any backing at all.

Making the generalization that this had to be a young kid driving this M4 is as poor as thinking all people grow up to be wise. It's just completely incorrect and idiotic to claim.
But if you were betting...

I don't deny that. I am 45 myself with 2 kids. I have never driven with the dsc off. I feel it's not worth the risk. The car is enough fun in MDM mode.

I was just saying that this thread took a wrong turn. Regardless of age you have a guy fighting for his life and here we are arguing about his age not knowing what really happened.

By the way, if it's not already been corrected in this thread, it was a M6, not a M3. Could very well be older guy driving drunk at 2 AM. Who knows. But it doesn't really matter. Hope he lives to drive another day.

Things I noticed about these sorts of news stories and threads...(aside from the helpful comments and expressions of concern):

1) The more expensive the brand, the more detailed the reporting is about it. "A BMW M3 was found overturned..." versus..."a VEHICLE was found overturned...", almost as if they're trying to highlight something
2) Side analysis to verify if the car is actually what is reported
3) Assumptions taken out of context
4) Always a comment or two about the attractiveness of the news reporter (if there's footage of the coverage)
5) Joke or two about undamaged parts for mods, tire pressure, traction control, and etc. (didn't see one in this thread...YET)

Doesn't seem to be any follow-up in the news. Regardless, hope the guy is okay, but there is still no excuse for driving recklessly/impaired.

Car can still go sideways in mdm mode. I accidentally drifted through a right turn and got really lucky there was no one around, because the rear of my car went outside my lane. Figured you already knew that, but fyi anyway

Good point on perspective. Several of my colleagues have been evacuated from their homes in Thousand Oak, so I really feel what you are saying.

Regardless of circumstance, hope driver pulls through

Yeah I have tested that on the MDM. I donít even come close to pushing the limits on the street and am pretty careful. The point I was making was that itís foolish to turn of DSC. MDM is there for a reason as if you need more go to the track where there is excessive runoff.

Well I am an old guy (learned to drive on a three on a tree), and the last time I was up at 2am it was because I was going the to ER for food poisoning. It is getting cold at night and Z rated tires don't exactly have the grip they would have on hot asphalt. I was once considered a pretty decent driver (did some track things), but my skills are not what they used to be, and I have nothing left to prove to anyone. Sometimes ego gets in the way of common sense, and yes it happens to old guys too.
