A SHOCKING video of a driver trying to stop his luxury BMW from being towed away has emerged on social media.
The driver is so determined to stop the repo man hauling his BMW away that he slams the saloon into reverse to escape the truck’s tail lift.
The bumper is pulled nearly completely off when the driver reverses back, and it’s left hanging by just a few mounting points on the driver’s side.
In the second video, the man keeps trying to escape the clutches of the truck, whose tail is now lowered to the floor.
One of the men with the tow truck filmed the owner trying to stop his car from being towed and told him: “I’m on the phone with the police right now. You are on camera.”
“I have recorded the whole thing. You did this to your own car. Look at all the damage you caused to your car. For what?”

There is a moment when the driver’s young son is behind the rear of the car – and nearly gets squashed between the BMW 5-Series and the driveway gate.
The tow truck driver told the driver: “Yo, you’re crushing your kid, bro!”
People were quick to comment on Instagram.
One said: “Wanna get a BMW but can’t make the payments.”

Another said: “The audacity to expect to keep something you no longer pay is pure self-destruction.
A third pointed out: “I’d rather drive a 1999 Honda than buy a car I can’t afford.”
This comes after a woman had her car towed away but refused to back down.
