I can't believe they used a rope! Sure was a tough rope. I think a chain is safer. :wired: hehe, isn't that embarrassing?? Having your friend in a IS300 towing a brand new M3? :lol:
It's funny, because alot of the 3er owners diss on the is300 for being a wannabe bmw.

The M3 engine 'blowing up' issue was resolved. I believe that if the car was made prior to 11/01 w/ the M Engine, it would be prone to having problems.

And yes, that very damn funny about the IS300 towing the M3! hahha.

IS300 = 1
M3 = 0

yes, there was an issue with the m3 engine but all of them are being taken care of by warranties. the sept. oct. nov. build cars used a different part causing engine failure, it has been identified and the fix is on the way. Bmw is nonetheless a great car.

any info on what specifically and how they went wrong?

when it's blown, they have to replace the whole engine or rebuild it?

from s0ybomb from is300.net :

SoyBomb40: Tell those stupid bastards that a rope can EASILY haul a car. We use rock climbing gear that is tested at high force and high weight/stress. It can handle a shitlaod of shock too, if its made from spectra.
SoyBomb40: its obviously fake, but doable none the less.

i dunno whether it's a joke or not, but i can tell you that the ropes we use in our profession are roughly that size and rated about that weight from a dead hang.

i don't know. but it looks more like a hoax. Why would a bmw be towed by a lexus. The owner has free roadside assistance. So it obviously makes no sense unless those guys have nothing better to do than tow a car to another parking lot for no reason. I would have called bmw roadside assistance...

Actually it's quite doable. When My brother wrecked his GTP it was in the middle of a busy road, so I had to tie a rope(only thing my friend had) to my tl-s and pull it to the side so the rush hour traffic can go by. See there is this thing called neutrel gear that let's the car roll even when the car can't run...;)
