I'm actually up in the northland by Zona Rosa/Tiffany Springs, so completely the opposite side of town. If your asking what mods the BMW has nothing at the moment I have been fixing everything it has had wrong with it since buying it on Saturday. Only thing I can solve is the airbag light since I dont have the proper tool ro erase it after fixing the problem .I'll post some pics up later.

If you have any suggestion on mods or links to threads so I can read and learn that would be awesome.

I got cooper somethings, I forget what they are right now. All I remember is they are a brand new model and they are all season. Can already tell a huge difference with them, although my old tires were bald as can be. Got a great deal on them, and thats what really matters, lol. Really wish I had my car with me in Florida right now (on vacation for 6 days)

All I can guess is that the driver was messing around swerving a bit back and forth and it got out of hand.

Ya it was awesome, gave me a glimpse of what the real deal is like. I've been playing hella GT5 lately haha. Do you happen to have a list or something that the tech inspection checks? Or anything that would help me prep my car for the next track day? I'm wondering if I will need to raise the front of my car up. The tires don't rub under full lock but with any compression, its there.

My dad lost a trailer once when we were moving, it started speed swaying like that. His trailer didn't have brakes but luckily it was being pulled by his 2 ton International, which wasn't even thinking about being whipped around by a trailer. So the hitch just snapped off and the trailer shot across the interstate nailing the barrier, effectively shutting down i35 for 30mins to an hour.
