Woman in China drives X1 into dealership during test drive

Unbelievable

As well as the craftsmanship of the building.

She planted that thing right where that one guy was standing!

......you know, the skinny guy with dark hair, white shirt and tie. After watching it again, I'm amazed at how the guy sitting behind the desk came out of this unscathed. Looks like the desk plowed right into him.

Let's be honest, this is bad but if you've never driven a BMW before the shifter is a bit confusing. Her fault 100% but I'm sure that was a factor.

Not the worst driving video i have seen come out of China. How about the woman who killed her husband and decapitated herself while tryn to park her Lexus... that was a bad one.

A couple of years ago someone test driving a 3-series at the BMW dealership near my office went full on Dukes of Hazzard into one of my company's buildings.

He was going about 80mph on a 45mph road, swerved to avoid another vehicle, and in the process mounted the curb/sidewalk, followed by the small berm next to the sidewalk, which acted like a ramp sending the car flying over the 1st row of cars in our parking lot before it flipped end over end a couple of times and finally crashing into our building. How they survived with minor injuries is beyond me...

The best part of the video is one of our employees walking through the parking lot, hearing the crash, looking over his shoulder, and then just casually walking along where he was originally going like it was no big deal.

Wow.

Had to look that one up. Unbelievable. Their poor 6 year old kid had witnessed the entire thing.

She probably decided to buy an Audi instead.

What's hilarious is the door frame there sort of stopped her momentum, then it was full throttle after a moment's pause. Hah.

Regardless, the brakes are in the same place in all cars. Clearly she wasn't using them.

For me the biggest problem with the next X1 was the seats. Those carry-over seats from the Mini it's based on are rubbish.

So apparently she has a bucket list; test driving a BMW and crashing it are located somewhere toward the top.

I hate the idea of autonomous driving, but for this woman it should be a requirement. Level 5.

The seats aren't the only things carried over from the MINI.....
