Sounds like the BMW was a blast.

Last time I did anyting like that was in a mall parking lot. It was
just 25mph and I had to do it in reverse as it was a FWD car. You
sure can get spinning pretty good when the driving wheels are turned.

As I was leaving, a mall cop drove up. "Had enough?" "Yup."
And that was it.
