M2C driver makes a bus stop [Viewer discretion is advised]

The kicker, in the article they reference it as a "white BMW".

BMW crashes into Geylang Road walkway shelter, knocks down 1 pillar & stopped by next one

The shelter is quite new.

May 13, 2020

A BMW M2 drove up a footpath and crashed into a pedestrian walkway shelter on May 13.

The accident occurred along Geylang Road in the direction of Lavender.

The accident narrowly missed a bus stop.

The bonnet of the white BMW was destroyed and its windscreen shattered.

According to a Facebook post about the incident, the BMW hit one shelter pillar and shattered it before a second pillar stopped the vehicle from moving forward.

The crash destroyed a portion of the shelter.

Damage to public property would require compensation.

According to a 2010 figures for compensation, damage to public property can easily run up to thousands of dollars:

Lamp post (complete replacement): S$2,000

Road railing: Less than S$200

Traffic light control: S$10,000

Trees: Fine of at least S$2,000

According to Google Maps, the shelter is relatively new.

It was created some time between 2016 and 2017.

I posted a few days ago that I've done curbside take-out a few times, and always given my M2 color as white (for order identification), because I have no idea what it will look like when I get there. And a couple of times the food runner said "I thought you said white". Maybe I'll just say silver, but its not traditional silver, or say grey but its not grey?!?! I'll say silver
Anyway this poor M2 matches the post she took down exactly. And I love how the article say bonnet destroyed and windshield shattered. Dude, the M2 is totalled!!

I wonder if they'll whip him in Singapore for destruction of public property?
Penalties Under The Vandalism Act

Any reason the news reports says nothing about the “how” and “why”? It’s just a city property damage estimate.

SO = Dark Orange
HS = Light Silver

When I was driving a Carbon Black M3 I struggled with this as well... "Dark dark dark blue" doesn't always fit in the guest parking color description field. And when it's parked next to a plain black car, CB certainly doesn't look black.

The referenced FB post in the article states the following...

"driver lost control of vehicle & went up the pavement via the bus stop.
took out the 1st sheltered walkwalk pillar before stopped by the 2nd."

It's an amazing colour that reflects the viewer's perception of life. Mine is sometimes golden, sometimes blue but never dull grey.

Really? I've only seen it couple of times. It was either a light gray or gray with blueish tint. Didn't think I'd like it from pics, but in person I loved it.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s mostly gray/silver with blue but you get some other highlights in pink/red. Then again it might be just me!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting it down. But the way people hype it up on the forums had my expectations set extremely high. Then before all this covid stuff my dealer introduced me to HS M2C owner who happened to be there while I was getting service. He was parked in the shade and suggested pulling it out into the sun to really show it off. You could tell he really like the color, just like people here. But I'm sorry, I didn't see it, instead all I saw was dull flat gray.

But seriously glad you really enjoy the color and you should. People hate the white I choose but hey it's my car and I love it.

That's why cars are offered in multiple colors. No need to apologize for something you dont like...

I don't hate it. I just couldn't see the color flopping. I'll need to look closer next time.
