I hope they don't teach the same bad habits that a 325i driver showed
today.  On a fairly damp and greasy road, he attempted to keep up with
F600 JVJ on the bend to the M25 westbound upramp from the A412 at Maple
Cross - crashed out.  Spun twice, rear-ended the bank and rolled a full
360 back onto the wheels.

Driver OK.  Strike one BMW - it's scrap metal.

       "Yeah.  But that's a quattro."
