My BMW wagon has this. Great transmission. My last two cars were dual clutch so I was skeptical that I would like a traditional torque converter auto. ZF8 can be fast in sports mode and is much more comfortable in stop and go compared to the jerky DCT.

What did you drive?

More apt for this. On Friday the 2nd of this month at approx 21.00hrs, Kim & I had dozed on our lounge when our daughter came rushing in screaming her car had been destroyed...

I have the ability to sleep through incoming (didn't hear the collision). I rushed outside, no shoes (yes I had pants on) walking around a lot of broken glass, looking at what used to be my wife's car, being confronted by a 19 year old half formed adult telling me he lost traction, (after coming around a corner attempting some from of burnout...) The car he drove was a Hilux, slightly earlier to mine pictured behind Kim's car, also fitted with a bull bar.

My son saw that many years in the military embodies you with colourful and poignant language for all situations. The two young NSW Police officers in attendance (looked more like budding real estate agents wearing a Police uniform, and really felt attending this incident was well below them) reminded me that their body cam's were recording my every word. To which I replied "good!"

Kim's car was taken away, and after many calls to our insurer and basically being stone walled when speaking to their call staff in the Philippine's (I fkn hate how they do this, when we pay these fkers thousands each year), she finally got an answer from their settlement team yesterday.

Kerb side front wheel had been ripped from the linkage arms and was at 90 degrees to the car, only straight panel was the boot.

Her now totalled C300 was 1 month from being two years old from 1st registration, when she bought it new from a Merc dealer. So she is now getting a brand spanking new C300 spec'ed exactly as her old vehicle (As per her insurance policy, 'old for new if less than 2 years old').

If you think prices have increased in the US, here in Aus it's nuts. Her car new now costs $94K AUS, that's a $30K AUS increase since 2019.

All's initially shitty, and ends well. J

Also love all the new rides you guys are getting lately.

Lost traction. Uh huh. Translation.... I was driving action movie style.
Sorry about your stress however sounds like you came out square (which I’m sure you paid well for on the front end).

Thanks, yeah just a real big PITA right now. Bent metal thats all. He also totalled my neighbours car.

The little fkr was going to do a runner, but the impact screwed his drive train and after reversing to high tail it out of dodge his MV wouldn't move. Neighbours have this on their CCTV, which we sent to our insurers.

So he is total piece of shit then? Sucks about the car, but at least it's coming out good in the end.

The two attending Police Officer's were going to leave the scene saying it was all up to insurance. I jumped in and reminded them that 2 x parked cars have been destroyed in a 50kph (30mph) street, and there are no penalties for the driver at fault? I almost felt like saying to the two officers "give me your contemporaneous note books and I'll do your job..."

The turd was given a neg driving ticket. This'll affect his insurance repairing his vehicle but not ours. He'll probably be in a financial world of hurt for some time.

Yeah it's only a car, but Kim has worked bloody hard and deserves this. She's been eating a shit sandwich at work with the business in the middle of a take over. Added we're in another lock down here in Sydney, son's final year of high school, this was just another layer of poo we didn't need.

Just heard from the dealer she got her old car from that our insurance is sourcing her replacement vehicle through them.

E46 might be my favorite three series. Cars do make watches look like an affordable hobby.

Yes, love my M3, though I'm a serial car flipper (or at least used to be), but don't see anything replacing it anytime soon.
