Ah, but just take a stroll over to the technical engine section and check out the hundreds of threads by owners doing far worse... And give the dude credit for taking the time to produce the video. I give this one a huge

I found that video pretty funny. Most guys are too uptight to admit their mistakes and he did it in a video posted online. Gotta give him credit.

Very well done, I wonder if he's on any of these forums. How many people here on this forum hasn't launched their cars like they "were" at a drag strip, I'm putting my money on almost none. Who would buy a 300+ hp car and not lay down the hammer once in a while?

I personally have never launched my 335i in the 2 years of owning her.

You gotta pay to play and in this case, the dude surely paid. Drag racing is not that exciting anyways..road racing is where it's at!

?? The car isnt that old, plus you dont know the mileage either. Its a competition package car which means its at least an 05 possibly late 05 since they didnt start production on those till Dec 04. 3 yo cars are not old.

Anyway, I am not a big fan of drag racing, but I liked the video he made fun of himself, and took the blame.
