M5's are seriously fast vehicles and not for 18 yr olds.

Tragic to say the least, the dad probably did not loan them the car because it was 3:45 in the morning and the crash woke the dad. He probably left the keys on a coffee table r something and the kids decided to take it for a joy ride.

I don't think parenting is always the problem on stuff like this. It is maturity and responsibility. If I had a car faster than my '99 v6 mustang conv. I probably would have ended up the same way. I don't know anyone that around the later teens didn't drive faster than they should have on more than one occassion. My parents taught me responsibility, doesn't mean i didn't go a little wild when I finally got my freedom.

Funny how that works, eh?
What exchanges occur on that forum are no different than what goes back and forth on this forum:

Ammirato asked forum members on Friday about turning off the M5's electronic stability control for higher performance. A member wrote back with concern.

"With all (due) respect, gradually learn your car before you turn off (stability control)," he wrote. "With a little mistake combination of your mind and your right foot, you can be history. Be safe and enjoy.

"P.S. People on this board care about each other, especially when someone owns 500 hp car at age of 18. Don't take it personal. We all watch each other(s) back."

Another member expressed concern about Ammirato's maturity.

"[I]t's just disturbing to know, if you're for real, that an 18 year old who is asking these questions about a 500hp car is driving the same streets I am. I don't have anything against young guys driving nice cars, but an 18 year old behind the wheel of an M5 is what accidents are made of," he wrote.

Ammirato responded at 5:33 p.m. Friday that he was responsible.

"I completely understand where you are coming from assuming that I am irresponsible ... that is definitely understandable. I do sometimes make bad decisions but I am young and I do drive safe and I will not endanger the lives of others."

A member from Australia again cautioned Ammirato to be careful.

"My only bit of advice matey -- If you crash in a big way expect to be on the news," he wrote. "Enjoy and resist the temptation to drag others at the lights."
