    would post link to the BAVSpeed post, which has more local links, but you have to be a member



    Cliff notes:

    E90 chased for ~2 hours by HPD and Texas state troopers
    Ran over spike strips but kept going (run flats)
    Crashed head on into a car in on-ramp.

    When I was watching it live on the news, all I could think was, 'Wow, what a dumbass. And what a waste of a nice car, since he'll obviously crash it in the end..." then BAM a sweet head-on collision. I like how the driver/mother from the other car flipped out.

        I love how CNN pretty much praised the performance of the Bimmer.

            what is that lady talking about got knicked in the tail? looks like he just turned around. dumb announcers.
            if that chase was in canada (or atleast in ontario) cops would of spun him out right away. U.S cops are too easy when in chases.

              Yeah seriously, I watched the first 3 or so minutes and the most the did was threaten to send him into the median. Pussies.

                Anybody know why he was running?

                EDIT: I'm dumb, about half way through it says he is wanted on an assault case.

                        I love it how the woman the e90 crashed into got out of the car, and as soon as the cops got there, she freaked out and ran away, leaving her baby alone in the car.

                          houston PD are catching alot of shit for the way they handled the chase.

                          when he was "moving around inside the car" the guy was smoking a cigarette and waving at the cops... straight up italian job shit (that one guy that was in the chase in the 8 series)

                          anyone notice that sweet pull on that state trooper?



                          on the local news channels, about every 2 or 3 minutes they would comment on the speed and handling of the car.

                          was going to post a quote from BAVSpeed from a guy that works at the BMW dealership the guy bought the car from, but that thread got deleted.

                          he said there were alot of people calling to get a test drive in the new 3 after the chase

                            Now that's some marketing. "BMW - The Ultimate High Speed Chase Machine."

                            Sort of reminds me how everyone has to see a movie that was banned from being in theaters.
