We recently decided that the reason this E36 autocrosser won his girlfriend's hand in marriage was because of that oh-so-perfectly executed handbrake turn. Who could resist a man with skills like that?

See, the handbrake turn is a tricky proposition (pardon the wedding pun.) It's the ultimate "Do it right and you look awesome/Do it wrong and you look like an asshole" driving move. It paid off for this guy, but many aren't so lucky.

So here's our question of the day: What's the hardest driving technique to master? It could be specialized techniques you use on a race course, or just everyday driving skills that are important but escape most people.

Like putting down your cell phone when you're driving, for example. A lot of folks have trouble with that one.
