ahhhh

yeah I know, I will drive within my comfort level of course and most likely take the first 2-3+ laps like a grandma. I just want to see where I am at compared to others, I want it to be competitive in a way just not within myself ya know?

I'll let you drive my car Brad

Jeff is right, this is last thing you want to do. If there is a better driver/car in front of you and you try to push to keep up you will end up in the grass.

For the touring club they make the novice group drive slow, your first session especially. They want to make sure you know the track.

Nothings wrong with it, I just think you have more important things to keep more mind on then filming.

Just ordered my SS stepped headers. I'm ording the BW race exhaust and tune as soon ad Jacob get's me a price.

Only bad thing is I can't get the tune done until I get the headers and the headers are on back order till mid march. Atleast I'll be good to go for the April 20th track day.

I'm placing a pretty big order with Bimmerworld through GF-Performance. Does anyone else need anything from there, the more we spend the more we save.

White is very user friendly, but we do need to adjust coloring.

I just like mine so much better, I like how the body line is continued around the rear and not having a handle makes it look so much cleaner. JMO.

The new one does look better than the old though.
