    It amazed me that this tree didn't snap.

    I believe the car hit a light post, bounced, then hit the tree. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I heard something similar, but it's LA, so it could be fake plastic tree made of metal and silicone.

    So now they're saying they were street racing. Brutal. I heard directly from people who were at the event that there was more to the story, and now it sounds like this is what they were referring to.

    Still a tragic loss.

    The police definition of street racing and actual street racing ≠.

    the NY Post is saying that something may have broken and that power steering fluid was on the road pre-skid marks suggesting the car lacked steering pre-crash.


    keep in mind the Post has the journalistic integrity of a banana.

    New MLK. Much better than the first generation IMO. Pulled in at 7am, drove away at 7:08. Can't ask for a much faster service visit than that.

    Ok. I wanted to see if MB gave their customers an equal loaner car. This used to be the case with BMW but no longer - for the M3 I always get a 320 or 328i. Would prefer a Mini Cooper actually
