Not a modder, so I didn't know that JB4 has a valet mode. Pretty cool.

I never use valets. I've seen my car stall (didn't give enough gas), and the guy was clueless about 6MT in general. I couldn't believe they gave a guy a valet job when he couldn't drive stick.

Garage List
2008 BMW 335i  [4.38]
I have posted about this in a couple other threads but I'm still pissed to this day about it.

A few months back I went to a restaurant that was valet only. Handed the guy my keys and watched him park the car pretty close to the front of the lot so I figured I was safe. When we came out the driver who went to get my car revved the engine and squealed the tires in reverse, narrowly missing the car next to mine. He gunned it around the corner and came to a screeching halt about 3 feet in front of me as I was standing in the lot waiting for my car. Then, when he opened the door, he kicked the plastic door guard panel completely out of the car, fumbled around a little, picked part of it up, reached across me to hand it to my husband and said "Oops." No apology, just "Oops." What a dumbass. The valet company got a bill from BMW Collision and I complained to the restaurant. After that the guy still had the nerve to hang around while I was waiting on the manager acting like he was expecting a tip.

Damn... These valet incidents suck.
This is the reason I avoid many places. Can't forget "Ferris Bueller's day off" scene where the valet guy drives off with the Ferrari.

BMW n other manufactures shd add a valet feature which wd limit the rpm n speed. I'm already writing an email.
