We have all driven well over the limit on this board...and if not, you probably shouldn't have bought an M5/6. Instead maybe a Nissan Leaf.

I was driving on the interstate the other night around 100-120mph, no traffic except this one guy/girl I came up on who I swear was drunk. After following and not passing for about 2 miles I almost called him/her in, but decided to pass and let it go. Guess what...she wasn't drunk, I saw her looking at her phone and texting for a solid 2-3 minutes. She was swerving worse than a drunk!!!

Those who drive fast are probably more focused and more attentive to the road than anyone else out there. I know when I am driving over the speed limit I am constantly scanning for animals, other cars 1 mile ahead, cops, birds, etc etc. I am much more dangerous of a driver when I am following traffic at the limit or 5 mph under when I get bored and want to talk on the phone, eat, play with the i-drive, search for music...etc. etc. Just because people drive fast doesn't mean they are the dangerous ones out there.

/end rant

Just to be clear, this rant still doesn't make posting evidence of illegal action on the internet a good idea regardless of if you are morally opposed to the action or not...

You guys are too paranoid...did you even watch the clip lol. Even if he somehow had to go to court over it...a lawyer would say... he lied. That isn't actually his video. He stole it from someone else he was riding with that had an M6. Or...the video was taken in Mexico, not in US jurisdiction. He wanted to impress his friends on the message board. There is absolutely no incriminating evidence on that video. I see nothing wrong with posting that vid.

edit: no offense eddiejb, just giving my opinion

yeah, no offense taken...it's not my video, I don't care who speeds. I've gone well over 100mph in my vehicle at times as well. it'd just be really annoying to have to go to court, get a lawyer, etc for some stupid bs you posted on a forum.

Why not just tell us the story and not post the video or why not post the video but not tell us the exact date, time, and road you were driving on? Either one of these two things are fine by themselves but together it seems pretty stupid.

You do make a good point there with regard to the annoyance of having to go to court to fight something stupid lol

Did I say 5 south? Oh im sorry i meant where the 5south meets mexico and the video was taken on Mexico's freeway. Ok, so now that thats clear, the Federales can take over. Pretty easy to get out of that ticket. Hmmmm maybe i'll just give them $20 and a 6 pack of Tecate
