bmw technicians get fired for 1m joyride video

Two knucklehead dealership technicians decided to borrow a BMW 1 Series M Coupe and put it through its paces. What makes the video even more painful to watch is that the technicians have no sympathy for the car’s delicate break in period.

Interstingly, members of the 1Addicts forum managed to narrow down the location of the joyride and trace it back to Pacific BMW in Southern California. Fortunetly the car had not been sold yet, and the dealership asking price was a whopping $20,000 over MSRP.

Once the driver knew the heat was on, he attempted to cover his tracks by removing the video from his account, but someone had already made a copy. The BMW abuser has apparently been fired by the dealer after forum members reached out in outrage. Furthermore, local city spokesman Tom Lorenz also indicated that local law enforcement is investigating the technician in regards to the obviously unsafe and illegal speeds obtained during the joyride in residential neighbourhoods.

    Getting a job at a BMW dealership - WIN! Doing something that can get you fired if the boss finds out - FAIL Videotaping it and hosting it on youtube for the world to see - EPIC FAIL! I'm happy these guys got fired and that the local law enforcement is getting involved. I would hate to be the person who placed an order for this 1M.

    It's people like this that bring a bad name to BMW techs. I might be young and also working as a BMW tech and I know it's hard to resist all the nice and fast cars but that's being so unprofessional and immature.
