My Son and our GT Became Internet Famous!

About a week ago, I recorded my 14 year old son driving our 550 GT DINAN Stage 2. He drove like a champ, and did some sweet donuts too (he's still learning how to perfect it though). And before anyone think this is irresponisble, he has actually been practicing safe driving for over a year now, and with a full-fleged FANATEC racing simulator (CSR Elite for any of you Fanatec lovers), I knew he could handle the power before (I was in the car with him first time he drove faster than normal).

After a week, I was shocked when this video got 12,000 views! and many comments on his driving skills and his "Cool Dad."

Then, one day I noticed the video was shared 4 times. So I go on to Google, type BMW 550i GT Donut, and what do you know! There were about 6-8 articles written about the video, and a couple even mentioned his name!

So first here is the video:



Then a screenshot of the articles:



And the link to my favorite article:

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/14...deo-55368.html

He was ecstatic when we found out, and I hope it keeps getting more popular.

Just noticed that the 550 gt looks just like a x6m LOL but a lot cheaper.

Yes, you can be really proud...

Let a 14 year old drive this powerful machine... - besides from letting him drive at all...

Next time you show us a video driving him on the highway (and not on a closed parking-lot...)

Sorry...

Sorry...
First off... he is just 14, and not even that big, so he can only stick to parking lots. Second, at least he could handle it. I'm not going start any fights in this forum but please, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't post it. Thanks.

Sorry Mate,

A Forum is there to 'discuss' and comment things, not always to everbody's like...

Sorry... It just gets a little personal/sensitive when it's about my son. But no worries though...

I love it and think its awesome. Sorry he isn't 2 years old and doing laps in the nurburgring, while going 500mph. I guess some people in this forum can't be happy for other people.

I don't want to get into the discussion about weter this is stupid or not, but when you post videos of your 14 year old son doing stuff you -know- will be provoking quite a few people, what do you expect? really?

Lol he actually has planned out how he is going to purchase his first car. He will have $22K (from his own money and a little of ours), will buy an Older M3 with a decent amount of mileage for under $17K, and with the rest he will mod it.

And he said, when he becomes successful, he'll be buying me the M6! Lol

Great video! Btw, how do you like the sound of your exhaust with the muffler delete? I probably have the same exact setup as you. Did you add any aftermarket mufflers or are you just running straight pipes from the center resonator to the quad tips?

It's just a straight pipe setup and it sounds incredible. And there is literally no drone.

I can really see your son drives like a maniac on public roads when he gets a real license in a couple of years time.

Need to show off to his buddies what he can do. Right !

That's impressive. I get some drone around 1500 RPM. I was surprised how well it sounded by just taking out the mufflers. The cold start is my favorite. Sounds like an absolute beast.

Well actually, there is a light deep hum between 1500-2000rpm, but i really love that noise. its not annoying at all

Irresponsible IMHO. While this came off without a hitch, how would you have felt if your son had smashed the car head on into one of those posts? It takes only one mistake.
