Stock springs, p-brake set. Luckily the 6.4 warned us to move cars out of the garage or it would have had golf clubs and other stuff falling on it. No damage to either of our houses here.

Lol, the M3 is definitely taking it better than the SUV's in view. Here's a look from another angle that shows how the Land Cruiser did.

I'm surprised that didn't set your car alarm off. My Vette sets the alarm off on my M4 when it's just idling in the garage.

Years ago when I lived in LA, I was driving in a car and the car was in motion when we had a minor earthquake. It felt like something was wrong with the car, like the engine was missing and the suspension was wonky. It definitely felt weird, and then it was over and everything felt normal again. But I definitely felt a difference. I found out later that there was an earthquake.

Thanks for posting... I'm was/still am, in the EU when this happened (Italy specifically) and the news here was making it sound like California was literally falling in the ocean... of course I looked at our cameras in Santa Barbara and can't even see when the earthquake happened. I'm sure Italy just freaks out because of their bad quake in '12 but everyone I talk to over here that knows we live part time in CA and Italy was acting like it was the end of California... I tried to explain that nothing over 7.5 gets us very worried. But it's understandable since the last 7.5 literally wrecked the country... it caused over 2.5 million euro in damage to our properties.

Impressive video. Just how the bushes were shaking just shows off how violently the ground was shaking.

Loved the videos. I was at our jail facility when it happened, and since our jails are on rollers, it felt like being in a rocking chair.

I thought you retro-fitted the new Mercedes GLE's active suspension
