He clearly needs more power


I do love those old 5ers and having 700hp to blow away unsuspecting modern cars has to be a lot fun... well, if you can get the power down that is!

I don't care who does this, really, or where. In the second vid (which was posted by someone else), the drifter gets really close to an oncoming car. Thank God that the driver of that car didn't panic and drive off the road killing a kid, or something. But it was a hair away from happening.

I've been to Sweden twice - Stockholm and Gteborg - and it is indeed not crowded. Not to mention, it is one of the cleanest and nicest places I've ever visited - if not THE cleanest and nicest. But if I saw a douchebag do this in front of me, calling the cops would've been the better of the 3-4 things I could think of doing in response. And I love to drive fast and love to watch drifts, dude. There, make your own conclusions.

Anyway, I didn't want to get into any arguments here, or anything - just sharing my opinion. Its your life, do what you want - just please don't harm anyone else in the process.

BTW I really love E28 5er, so if you care to share some pics, I'm sure we can find a lot more common ground there

I didnt consider the moral right or wrong in this-just sharing a capable driver and a capable car. Of course its not good to do this in public.

And the

Well we are not so crowded in this part of the world. There is room to take a few bends sideways............
was of course irony.

Id really like to have me one of those E28:s though.....my brother had a E28 Alpina B7 turbo...really fast car!
