haha, damnit, the guy's comments were deleted, I assume because he was banned. He came in here making nonsensical comments about jews. Anyways, might as well take this opportunity to tell a little BMW vs BENZ story that happened just a few short weeks ago.
It was the first big snow of the winter here in Chicago. I was unprepared, no snow tires. I decided to go to a friend's house. I got there and parked right next to another friend's 98 545(I believe.) These parking spots are severely slanted forward. Hours later, he leaves first, and after a few minutes we hear him spinning his tires(fairly new blizzaks), and he gives up and comes to ask for assistance. A few of us pushed him out.
I decide to leave before the storm gets worse. My friend prepares himself at the front of my car, but much to my surprise, she backed right out of the approx 10-15% grade parking spot, even over a 8" pile of snow left behind by the plows. No winter tires, less torque and HP, no traction control. 14 years older, but it still beat the beemer in that test.
