Dude, your driving a 7. This car accelerates perfectly, handles perfectly, brakes perfect, and just in general drives perfect. If you crash it, you probably deserve to be hurt. I wouldn't be worried at all about safety if you know how to drive.

He might, but I figured he is on the 7 forum so he had one, my mistake though.

What if he doesn't crash it? What if some idiot crashes into him?

Besides that, only the 3 series has been tested. Not the 5 or 7 series.
