I'd expected better; I guess even some CHP aren't car guys.
You think that's bad...my cop wrote M5.

Wise choice.

Despite the "you can't race your house, but you can sleep in your car" saying, someday there can be sitting a 1M in the garage of your house.

Don't despair. You can always get a pre-owned one later down the road. High probability it will have been babied.

@DriveHard

Given your reply, I have to rephrase my previous statement:

"someday there WILL be sitting a 1M in the garage of your house."

Will it ever come back from the body shop.......

Will it get you a speeding seminar instead of a court case when you get stopped by the Rozzers doing 85 in a 50 (true story, I'm on that damn course today.)

Will a female voice originating from the 1M backseat often command, with some sort of manic tone: "Faster!" and "Again!"...
...whilst another female voice from the 1M passenger front seat immediately responds, with some sort of damsel in distress tone: "Overruled ! Ignore !".

Yes it will !

Yup, not all CHPs are car guys, far from it, the *#$#@ that gave me a ticket for doing 81 (on 280, I was just cruising along with the flow of traffic) had no idea what it was (wrote "BMW M 2dr" probably only because he saw the M badge on the back), should have seen the look on his face when he heard the sound I made just accelerating to merge back (safely) in...

FYI you can't go 100 mph up a hill in SF ... well technically you could but just once because the car is not likely to survive the landing intact!

If she got back together with you because of a car, I'm not sure she's worth it.
