    If anything, they wouldn't let me if I rolled up in a bimmer, lol.

    I'm hoping my insurance drops dramatically next year once I'm 25. I'm paying $3K a year in premiums currently. Even when I had my ZHP, I was paying around $2400 in premiums.. Ridiculous. Clean record, too.

    bimmer drivers are exactly who they want to see pulling up to that event. they targeted competing brand owners to try to lure them to defect.

    when i did this, the PBIR parking lot was 90% Porsche and BMW. the remaining 10% were Benzes and like 2 Audis (those were probably employee cars)

    Wow, really?

    I remember while filling out the survey I lied and said I was very likely to purchase an Audi as my next car, thinking it would boost my odds of getting picked. Little did I know that I would be instantly 'approved.'

    I don't see myself moving to Audi for a long, long time, though.

    BMWBJ4LYFE!

    As for drifting, I sadly do not know how to drift.. Haven't found a place to learn how to do it safely and responsibly and I'm honestly too scared to turn off traction control on my car.

    I turned it off once at a red light and gave the car maybe 60-70% throttle at green and all I did was spin tires. :embar:

    It doesn't seem like it would be difficult, though.

    Oddly the only bmws I like are the new facelifted 7 and 6s. I'd go audi before bmw these days too since bmw styling is all fucked up.

    Would never consider a 991 gt3 due to no manual trans.

    That looks beautiful.

    It also makes me sad that nowadays you need to have a special concept model of a car to get a bit gas guzzling V10 or V12.

    According to the text it's going to be bigger than the six, so new 8 series maybe. :slayer:

    current 6er is already huge, and this is likely on a SWB 7er, so it must be huge. It looks nice in the teasers, but yeah, could be fucking massive.

    between NY and LA, I have seen maybe 3 or 4 8-series over the past 3 weeks. Really awesome.

    Only seen one 8er in the past 5 years or so, but it was an M sport 850Csi (the v12 6spd one with m aero) with 18" style V's...

    a 4 door 6 or 8 series is just blasphemous. What next? A 4 door M1?
