It's even worse --- my passengers feel compelled to wear helmets, too! That was at Buttonwillow, running counterclockwise coming out of the Cotton Corners complex.

Silver 1998 BMW M3 4-door.

Even after all these years, it's still thrilling to drive.

It's nice, but I drive it fairly infrequently with the price of gas as it is, pretty much the occasional weekend drive down PCH etc.

I recall you modded some of your other cars. Is the 65 stock?

1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL It's rather a boat in modern traffic, and the gas is expensive despite it being only 6 cylinders. However, in the future, I might consider it having painted in a duotone palette: cream and navy blue, perhaps. Stock photo

I personally drive a 92 Toyota Corolla Sedan, Not much to look at. I modded it and race on the weekends (Auto X track Racing). Its getting rather tired and is about ready to be sold (I used to get 40+mpg out of it which is worth it nowadays). Next car... hope to get a 90-92 Nissan 240SX or 94-95 Toyota Starlet Turbo (I would have to import it from Japan...), or a Lexus SC300 5Speed even though I am a tall guy I really like small light cars, they just handle nice. I like to be able to flick a car around a corner with a quick tweak of the wheel.

It just has the Renntech ECU, otherwise stock. Pretty quick though, not as nimble as the porsche but it's much more comfy. I never really fit perfectly in the 996.

Actually, mine is a ivory/beige color as opposed to that navy blue one, and it has bullet indicators instead of the large round fog lamps. It's a car that looks more striking in person than pictures especially with the colorful grille badges.

Oh, I do much better than those numbers, these days. Just had it on the dyno for a tune, 302HP and 365ft-lb of torque at the wheels on 100 octane.. and you know what kind of drive train losses these AWD cars suffer. (240awhp/260awtq stock on that dyno)

Cool, I autocross and do track days on the weekends. In fact, I've got an autox at a road course on Sunday, and next Friday, I have an open track day. This should be a good week. Oh, and I'm doing a fun drive on Saturday morning through Central Michigan.

For my purposes, the most functional vehicle I have owned.

Understatement of the year.
With the RENNtech ECU, not much else you can to do to that car without cracking open the transmission. Nice dude, what a sleeper.

pretty much the opposite of what you guys all have, if I happen to make the final table at the WSOP next week though the sl65 would definitely be my first purchase.
