I called Irvine bmw today and talked to the guy who's working on my ///M. He said only one thing was wrong. My half shaft broke (the half shaft is what spins the rear wheels). So basically when Vince was trying to drive back up to my friend's house, the car was moving on 3 spinning wheels and not 4. Vince said he noticed how the car kept moving sideways and stuff. Also the broken half shaft is wat caused the clutch to slip and what not.

Hmm, I would have thoght a RWD car would have 2 half shafts, not 1, aren't they the shafts that go between the transfer case and the rims?... When one snaps, you still get some power to the remaing wheel, but all wheels still spin, no?...

Hopefully i get to keep it. Dad isnt THAT mad nemore. Never will i try launch control again. Miguel from Irvine bmw said i'll get it back in like a couple of days. and while they are fixing it, they are going to replace my STOLEN emblems and roundel.

Yeah. there are 2 half shafts i think. I only broke one. thats why only my front wheels and one of my rear wheels still worked. the other rear one didnt spin. so basically it was like dragging on the ground and thec ar kept like moving sideways.

Oh yeah. Its covered under warranty since they couldnt find any other damage to the car other than the broken half shaft.
