forget the top speed
had to do a lot of country lane driving today
now for a change it was raining (uk)
never before have i had to lift my foot off the accelerator like i did today
if i went near a corner in second or third with any accelaration the back end would
slide
now yes this is fun for a bit but when your doing about 50mile on these lanes it gets a bit hard especially when there are deep ditch's on either side of the lane
i only get this when it rains otherwise the car sticks to the road
anyone else with a 318 have this sort of trouble when it rains

I was pumping the throttle around roundabouts to test the feel of the rear end in the wet. I didn't actually notice the rear had stepped out slightly until it snapped back a few inches. It wasn't dangerous or anything, I fly around this roundabout a few times a day in the dry.

For sure! There are a few lams roundabouts in this city in some residential areas. They don't actually put in proper roundabouts (and they are very tiny, with a willow tree in the middle so you have no clue what the hell is going on in 1/2 the roundabout (I'll get a picture soon), and it doesn't work well because most people don't know roundabout "rules" and they get confused and back things up.

Anyway, I was in that area and thought I'd have some fund. Dad was in the car and I went flying around it 3 times, tires squealing, just for the hell of it. That was fun. Had him surprised!

Here we get massive roundabouts. Because our roads are full of such incompetent loser drivers and my car doesn't have enough power, I usually end up overtaking everyone on the wideass roundabouts or give way line where they dither around, the idiots waiting there when it's clear to go! BA5TARDS

In the UK, you have to give way to the right which makes sense but that simple idea completely passes many of our stupider drivers by!

I forgot to say that we have one of the biggest roundabouts in the world in the UK which doubles up as the largest carpark...we call it the M25

Yeah, I've never been to Europe but my grandpa has talked about the hilarity of us using roundabouts here. Apparently the one's you guys have work pretty well he says, and they're big enough to accommodate a good amount of drivers, and at least many of you know how to use them I'd assume.

Here, they stuck them in the middle of tiny residential streets, one lane only, you can really only fit about 3 to 4 cars in it, the people in the roundabout stop to let the people outside in (proper etiquette is to yield to the person IN the roundabout, no?), people both outside and in get confused, there are even the occasional people who go the wrong direction! It's a disaster here. Great idea, but US drivers just aren't used to the idea.
