Hi Dx, yeah i was lucky bud. No broken ribs or punctured lung, it was just badly bruised due to the impact, on the scan my right lung was nearly all black and as such not functioning properly, I kept having to have these horrible blood o2 level tests (the YTS nurses all got to do it!!) where they stick a needle with a pot on into your wrist and dig around! apart from that ,snapping a tendon underneath my tackle! and cuts on my ankles from the pedals I was ok!
It wasn't a real M3 no, it was a 325i but Heathrow BMW used it as a demonstrator for all the ASC parts. So had the wheels,wood,steering wheel,g/nob,suspension etc pretty much a full S3 rep.
My Dad had an XR3i and a 309 GTi when I was a kid (late 80's child). I loved them, the cars of their day and what got me into fast metal. I still long for a Series 1 Escort RST even though it was already on the road before I was born but by today's standard it'd be slow I bet.
