It was great to have you observe and point out how the car behaved and what to do to correct it for smoother runs. I found the length and weight of the car actually made the slalom and 180 a lot of fun. It was definitely a lot of fun to have be able to consistently have it slide, almost drift around the cones. After getting a hang of how the car reacts and slides, I really appreciate how well balanced and controllable these big BMWs are.

I had wanted ot push it to its limit (or my limit of being able to handle it) around turns with a lot of turn in and/or exit speed just to see how much trouble I can get into. I finally got into a rhythm and got to know the capabilities and handling of my daily driver.
What a blast.
Next time, I'll be there with an E34 to see what it can do.
