Aw, sorry to see that happen, especially under such benign circumstances.

Kind of reminds me of the time when Jeremy Clarkson tested the Reliant Robin and rolled sideways a dozen times. "That's not gone well.........."

Glad you are ok.

[smartassery ensues]

"that'll buff right out"

"looks like detailing the undercarriage just got a lot easier"

Explain that one to the insurance adjuster...........

Sorry about your X bro. Proves once again that it is still an SUV and they still roll over.

Upgrade time!

Glad you're alright man!! And about how it happened... shoot, I'll be the last one to point a finger. Sometimes the redneck in all of us has to cut loose and that kind of fun ain't pretty and guaranteed something's gonna get broke. "Y'all watch this" always makes for good storytelling and years from now I hope you can chuckle over it. Hope you don't feel too bad.... it's stuff, and eventually you'll get even better replacement stuff. Stuff happens.

Justin, just going to get the E36 back together, it's still fun to drive as a 2 door manual transmission little ride... besides, it already has the Dinan chip, fidanza lightweight flywheel w/M3 clutch, polished stainless exhaust system from long tube headers back to the tips, pretty damn good stereo system, alarm w/remote start etc. I just gotte get her back together and painted and she'll be good as new to me. 40% better gas mileage than the X too, so that helps.

And papasmurf, the mirrors broke into a million pieces when it rolled, and the headlights stayed on it when insurance picked up... so no dice there.

And I had multiple requests for the sub box, not turning it into an auction so I'll just go with the first who wanted it. But the style 87 20" wheels are still up for offers, the front tires still have almost half life left, the rears are down to wear bars. (still the michelin diamaris at the moment) I was actually a week or so from ordering new tires for them, I would have been pissed to have 4 new tires and no X5 to put them on!

I'm still trying to find a good mud/off-road track around here so me and my friends can go off-roading in my X3. They all have pickup trucks and wanna see what my X3 can do. I've taken my X3 on an ATV trail before so I kind of know what it can do
