Man strips BMW. Can’t drift. Does crash…

A cheap BMW does not a drift car make.

A man has bought a BMW of some description and removed the interior, only to discover that doing so has not made him a drift expert. Ben Klock, from Basingstoke, bought the 318i SE BMW for £495 from a Facebook marketplace ad, despite initial concerns that it may have been a stolen car, what with being for sale on Facebook Marketplace.

Once he took delivery of a his sales rep-abused car, Mr. Klock set about removing the interior in its entirety, leaving only the dashboard and a Monster Energy sticker. The goal, Mr. Klock assures us, was to become a world famous drift superstar.

“I don’t get it?” Explained Mr. Klock. “I bought the car, took all the seats out, and then that should’ve been it. I should have been able to drift like all them other fellas on the Youtubes. I thought all you’ad to do was take the seats out.”

Mr. Klock, however, was wrong in his assumption and crashed his 318i SE though he neighbour’s front wall like only a twonk could.

As it turns out, Mr. Klock is a victim of the internet. It’s a place that has filled his head with false hope and nonsense. Yes, he may well have seen many a BMW being used a drift car, but what he failed to account for was the fact the drivers of these cars could drift anything. It not the car that makes the drifter…

When we propositioned Mr. Klock with the notion of perhaps taking a lesson or two, he instead stared off into the middle distance before going back to his 318i SE in order to apply his nine-thousandth Monster Energy sticker.

It is our understanding that since our interview with Mr. Klock, he has listed the seat-less BMW on eBay as a “drift car”. Though given there are six-thousand other BMWs with no seats on eBay at eBay at any one time – all of which are listed as ‘drift cars’ – Mr. Klock has yet to secure a sale and is instead left with a ruined car.
