View Thread: Crazy night at work.


eric
I didn't really wanna go to work tonight, I have two finals on monday and really wanted to study for them, but I had promised I would work, so I had to. Plus the extra cash wouldn't hurt for chistmas.

We were valeting at a museum that was on a four lane road near the whitehouse. (17th and E for anyone in the DC area) We had one lane completely full with cars that we were valeting, so most of the cars were going into the other lane. There was another event on the next block that was causing traffic too, so some people were pulling illegal u-turns and driving back the other way. A guy in an A4 wagon tried to make the illegal u-turn and ended up hitting an older pathfinder that was sitting in the lane. The guy in the A4 decided that he was gonna take off, so he speeds down the street but stops at the red light. I decided that his guys not gonna get away with this, so I run and stand in front of his car, so he has nowhere to go when the lights turn green. Another valet called one of the secret service bike cops over, where they take him out of the car and take all his info, and even take the info of a few guys who saw what happened. Apparently he would have been taken to jail if the guy in the pathfinder had stuck around. We were hoping that the guy in the A4 would have been fucked.

Later on in the night there was some crazy 5 on 5 guy brawl oustside of some restraunt and a ton of cop cars rolled up. They broke it up, but one of the guys looked like he got his ass kicked (worse than me)

The best part of the night, of couse, is the fact that I got to drive another M5.
:naughty:
God I love those cars. I turned sport mode on as son as I got in the car. Damn did it sound good. When I got back to the museum we were valeting at I got out of the car and held the door as the owner walked up. He then was about to hand me the tip, but saw a huge smile on my face, and said
"Wait, lemme check the odometer. How far did you drive it?"
Me: "20 Miles at the max sir, no more that"
Him: "Haha, Glad you enjoyed it. Have a good night kid"
Then he handed me the tip, and left leaving a little bit of rubber on the ground.
Easily one of the coolest guy's I've ever valet'd for. Good tipper too.
:D

I love great stories of civilian vigilance!

It would have been funny if he ran you over too, though...


Hey, question about the M5, m3, etc.

My uncle's got an m3. He says that when he puts it in some mode, when he shifts for best acceleration, before he's fully re-engaged the clutch, the computer automatically gives a bit of gas to maximize acceleration...anyone know about this?

Oh and since this is car-related (I made it even more so...moved to general)

SMGII or six-speed? I've definitely heard of significantly different shift programs for the SMG, but I haven't heard anything about the regular 6-speed.

6speed

6speed

Well I haven't heard anything in particular about that, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't true.

Sia Bani
but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't true.

Well, that's my point...if this feature were there on the 6sp...a feature that apparently creates faster acceleration etc...how come none of us know about it? You'd figure it would be more known if it existed...

My uncle knows about cars, so I don't think he's mistaken or full of shit, but it's just odd to me that I didn't learn about this feature in the last 3 years!

It's probably BMW dealer jargon. Maybe increases acceleration by a half of a tenth. But increases, so they can say it.

nah, he read it somewhere...but experienced it first, using his gtimer.

Haha, G-timers suck balls.

If you've ever worked in a physics lab with accelerometers, you'd know why.

Sia Bani
What's the relevance of that? Short people are better positioned to give gay head...but what's that have to do with anything?

Let's keep this thread on the m3...
