Lesson learned. Dont sell the car. Learn to control it (for srs, not being patronizing). You have to pay to play even if you get a 235 or whatever.

There's a wide left turn on an open corner where I kick out the rear in 2nd and just power slide that bitch on a regular basis with nobody around. Love that shit.

GF check out BMW performance driver training

US M driver training

I've always wanted to do the M-school but hesitated at the price of roughly $2k.

And now I've spent $3k in repairs for what I believe I could have avoided had I gone to the M-school shog[1].gif.

I believe the danish Porsche importer, has it as a compulsory thing, just to make sure people don't fuck up their brand new 500k$ car.

Crazy, someone buys an M5 and doesn't trip over himself rushing at the first opportunity to [legally] drive it close to its limit.
post #13163 of 14949
it's cool to have a nice car, but then it's really all about the driver.........
post #13164 of 14949
$2k seems quite reasonable if it gives you enough skill to not cause $3k dings. It seems downright cheap if it stops you stuffing it into a bend and killing yourself.

Sedan with GTR powertrain... M3 contender from Infiniti? Maybe more M5.

You don't drive your own car, at the BMW courses, they have a bunch of M cars for you to drive, Lambo, Audi, MB etc. etc. have similar ones they also offer snow driving, so you can take an aventador out on a frozen lake.

The Danish Porsche course is in your own car though.

This picture has my undivided attention.:eh:

Dont even bother with the official BMW class. You'll get way better use of money & time by going to your local track with NASA or SCCA or BMWCCA. Couple hundred for the day(s), couple hundred for insurance through Lockton Affinity Motorsports. Boom.

The difference, as originally mentioned, is that you get to beat on someone else's car with no liability whatsoever. Plus, the instructors most likely have far better credentials than your local chapter or HPD organization.

Also, a full HPD day will require the purchase of some equipment, most likely you'll need to take care of some servicing on your car, and you'll burn up at least 50% of the life of your tires during the day. It's not as cost effective as the entry fee suggests but they never were supposed to be

Yeah, I wouldn't want to thrash my car around, especially when I'm using it as a learning platform for the first time. Sounds like bad news bears. Tire wear would be annoying.

The M-school would be fun to attend, too, I think.
