    Do you have a teenage kid? Does he borrow your car often and post on the internet?

    http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...cleId=124526#2
    At 3:30 a.m. on January 26, a 2008 BMW M5 painted Space Gray flew off the raised end of a runway at a private airport just outside Ocala, Florida, sailed 200 feet through the air and stuck a huge tree. The impact with the tree occurred 15 feet off the ground. Five young men, aged 18 to 20, were killed instantly.
    I feel sorry for the family, but it looks like a Darwin situation.


    Another pet peeve, why do kids make it a point to tell the whole world about their age? I'm 18 and I drive an M5, I'm 17 and I will be responsible with the evo, I just got my license, but I worked hard for this RS4....

    How about proving it by staying alive and not writing off daddy's car??!??

    I certainly would not lend a son of mine a 500bhp V10 monster at 18 years old, it doesn't make for a good ending. Blame the parents.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
