1989 BMW E30 M3 vs 2013 Scion FR-S vs 2013 Volkswagen GTI! [Head 2 Head Episode 31]
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Mike Febbo & the 2013 Scion FR-S take on European Car’s Greg Emmerson & the 2013 Volkswagen GTI.
Joining the mix is a beloved classic, as the 1989 BMW E30 M3 makes an appearnce. Compared to the Scion & VW, the E30 carried a heftier price tag for it’s time but represented the definition of a fun, affordable sports car. And so, it serves as the benchmark for this episode’s Asian & European contenders.
Join Mike & Greg as they hash it out in their quest to see which is the “better” car.
The person steering what looks to be a BMW M5 E61 sedan charges off as soon as the light turns green but is soon annoyed by the presence of a motorcyclist.
We can’t know if words or…hand gestures were exchanged between them, but the M5 driver begins to chase the scooter until he corners him on the road where the two have a conversation about the incident, all while the traffic behind begins to pile up…
Driving on a city road as if Frank Martin (from The Transporter film series) is chasing you is never a good idea and it can get you and other people in trouble or even worse, as was the case with this BMW owner.
The accident happened in Taiwan, with the footage showing the BMW driver knocking down a bicyclist, who we’re not sure if he was crossing the road from a side street or if he was in front of the car at the time.
Either way, he seems to have escaped with not so severe injuries as he slid on top of the car after the impact.
