Again, nothing personal but a 330i is far from being some wild sports car... A 330i is kind of like, the base range of the 3-series...

That said, you can kill yourself in any vehicle if you're stupid enough.

Last year a group of kids died in an 09 Focus because they were going too fast, weaving in and out of traffic, got sideways and plowed side-first into a concrete median. Split the car in half and everyone died. It wasn't from lack of ability to control a small car with 120wheel horsepower, it was stupidity.
