BMW X5 Winter Driving
http://www.gearshifttv.com Winter driving across the BC Mountains to our
destination in Vancouver.
BMW X5 vs snow
To prevent stupid comments:
* The X5 had studded winter tires. (Parked next to my car several times and
for some reason I always look at other cars' tires.) The tires were not
worn out. In fact, they seemed quite new.
* The driver is a man. He has shown his "excellent" style several times
after filming this, and with his other car (the blue one) too.
* The empty parking spot next to the BMW was mine. I managed to get out of
it without any problems. And I have a rear-wheel drive car with studless
winter tires. Yes, there was some snowfall before the BMW started its
quest, but not much and it didn't make any real difference.
* "Learn how to drive!" / "Buy some winter tires!" / etc - I am not the
driver of this car. I am not going to send him your message. YouTube is not
going to send him your message. Your comment is pointless. The video is
more than two years old. He probably has better driving skills now. When
you post comments like that, you look like a dumbass who is shouting at the
TV - nothing is going to change and your message will not get through.
* Filmed in Estonia.

BMW X5 Active Hazard Braking
http://www.eurocarnews.com - BMW Group USA - In many cases, fractions of a
second can decide whether a collision can be avoided through emergency
braking. Active Hazard Braking, a research project conducted by BMW Group
Research and Technology into the avoidance of rear-end collisions, aims to
make maximum use of this minimal timeframe. The existing proximity warning
system can detect accidents before they happen, alert the driver in good
time, preload the brakes and, in the new BMW 5 Series, activate the brakes
as well. But Active Hazard Braking goes further, initiating an autonomous
braking manoeuvre, if required. At relative speeds of 80-130 km/h, the
research prototype can even use braking to avoid an accident, rather than
merely limit its consequences. The system can also detect stationary
vehicles. Work is continuing on motorcycle recognition.

Lamborghini in the Snow
2008 Lamborghini Gallardo, EVO tuned, Pirelli snow tires. After ~6" or so
of fresh Colorado snow, figured it was time to see how the Gallardo handles
in horrible driving conditions. Sometimes it's fun to do stupid things in
exotic cars :-)
