That's nothin'. I hydroplaned my e36 328i last year, in the rain, at 84 mph on the Turner Turnpike in Oklahoma. Came off the road surface backwards, slid about 1/4 mile through the mud in a bar ditch, and came through unscathed. I hadn't even stalled the car or spilled my fresh cup of coffee.
A wrecker pulled me out of the ditch, I cleaned out my pants, and drove the car (very carefully!) the rest of the way to Tulsa. It shook like a bastard because of all the mud packed in the wheels.
