I didn't want to say that but that's what I kept thinking. Everybody else just got out of the way. She was like, overtaking on an onramp or something. I wouldn't be surprised is she moved to the left to see what was going on with the cops ahead. Now I'm not saying it's her fault, but still...

So he backhands the wife/girlfriend, realises he is now going to be in a world of shit, and decides he may as well have some last moments with the car?? Or something along those lines?

Thanks Jason. You're awesome.

"And now he is starting to punch the gas. Hes, uh, gonna start to maneuver around the officers. And this is what we've seen for the past hour and fifteen minutes. The suspect in this vehicle has been toying with the officers this way. And with the amount of power he has in that BMW he is just leaving them behind right now."

"K, Hes gonna help them box him in is what hes trying to do..."

[but the 330i zooms around him]
"and that BMW and the driver in that car --its just too maneuverable."

Gerlado At Large

I think I saw a gerlado at large preview that said they will give a report on the BMW chase tomorrow 1/19/05 at 6:30pm EST. Not positive, I was heating up some food when I over heard the commercial on tv.

Now that this chase is over, who wants to be the next person outrun the cops? Let's take a vote.

All of this has inspired me to watch the DVD "The Hire" sent to me by BMW a while back! According to the box, "Brace yourself for intricate plot twists, riveting car chases, and a dose of wit."

As for the lady who got hit.

If you look carefully at the video, the Silver car that got hit, had a very large black vehicle, a suburban or something directly in front of them, and it's conceivable her field of vision was obstructed, and didn't see the e90 coming. And of course she was probably an older woman.

That theory doesn't seem to make sense to me. I mean how much could her vision be obstructed?!? If you could see the road you could surely see a car that hits you head on.

Now, when are one of the Photoshop gurus going to composite an E90Post sticker onto his car in one of those screenies?

Damn, that was my gag! Good one! :rocks:

Cool! Thanks jason!

Wow that's incredible how these news guys are talking about the car...it's almost reached "super car science fiction" status...I mean it out runs the heliocopter, out manuvers the police cars, and even tire spikes can't flatten the tires!

I hope the little baby is OK!

I really just hope and pray that the little baby is OK. I thought this was a very exciting chase until they took the car seat out of the back. That just about made me sick! That ASSHOLE almost took a little baby's life today!
