god bmw is such a ripoff... 50$ for a piece of plastic.

thank god you are alright though. never turn off DSC in turns or narrow roads unless you are on a huge track with no walls for 1/4 mile in each direction.

I always read these threads with amazement.... "I took my DSC off and crashed my car"

If you are not a PRO dont f*cking turn it off. Save yourself and OTHERS. :argue:

switching off DSC isn't what crashes cars, it's the driver. If you crash without DSC on, you were already too fast for that corner or were accellerating too hard already.

Switching off DSC isn't a problem at all, you just need to know what to do when the tail comes around.

I'm glad nothing really bad happened to your car and the people in it. I hope you learned a lil' something from this. :)

If the road is clear and you are by yourself then by all means wreck yourself. But for the love of god man what the hell were you thinking with your girl and neice in the car? You want to risk some crap for thrills that might kill your neice and your girlfriend? And you are worried about how much a damn turn signal lever costs, what the hell man. When you are driving others in you car, especially kids like your neice, you better use your brain because you are responsible for them. Grow the **** up.

:werd: I saw an accident scene the other day with a dead body still on the ground. Seems like a passenger of a T-bone accident between a Chevy SUV and E-class. The SUV was rolled on the side and ended up a curb while the front end of the E was smashed all the way to the windshield. It was an eerie scene and I couldn't imagine what the driver of the SUV would feel if they survived the crash while the passenger died. The way everything was layed out, seemed like the SUV was making a left onto the road. If you want to risk your life, may sure it's only your life at risk.

It takes a real man to admit your mistakes. Especially to such a critical bunch of fanatics. I'm glad you learned your lesson without any serious damage or physical pain.

Feel free to practice driving in a large parking lot with DSC off. That way you'll know what to expect next time. This type of thing can happen with DSC off too y'know...

Your best defense is experience. Experience is what we call our mistakes.

Dude i totally understand your point. I admit it was stupid of me.. To tell you the truth i was not expecting to swerve out of control... I was on a curv and accilerating.. I though the most would happen was my back would swing a little and that's it... but when it god out of control i tried as much as possible to stop it. I do know it was the most stupidest thing i've done and next time i shouldn't do it, especially when my family member or anyone i care for in the car. They know i'm sorry i made it clear to them.. the reason why i was so to the point of my question was because i fixed the "i'm stupid part" with them.. but didn't know how much it would cost for the repair. thanks for everyons hellp. Positive or negative... i take it because you guys are right.
thanks everyone!!! My appointment is on wednesday here at bloomfield ave.
