Should've gone for the SE and spent the Sport Line money on the Dynamic Amphibious Package instead.

Not as bad as this guy's Porsche (at around 1:08 in the video), but at least his wipers are still working. German engineering at its best!

You know you see a bad parent and say, "some people shouldn't be allowed to have kids..." Well, people like that shouldn't be allowed to own BMWs....no F30 deserves that kind of abuse.

Yea, the wipers worked. But, I bet if you were inside his car you would also see "wiper fluid low."

Probably a bloke running away from his nagging wife and screaming kids into the warmth of his mistress's arms.

Or,

A gal running away from her boring husband and life to visit her vibrant toy boy.

Good on them!

JOY WINS!!!

why not back up and get away from it.... ? only the exhaust pipes are under water...
nothing else... water in the cabin for that level wont harm any electronic... except for the HK bass under the floor or the electric seat ...

oh well...


PS: funny how the GX SUV who can probably get away driving through the puddle, dares not , but the lower sporty BMW just doesn't care... this goes to prove how much confidence you get driving a bmw !

From one of the comments:

... the electronics got completely fried. He opened the door (like an idiot) and flooded the inside, then the guy that pulled him out had to pull him out in park, and the noises coming from the transmission and diff were not pleasant.
