oh yeah.... actually the car has loads of grip, you need to really boot it to slide it in the dry.

very well chosen, typical ///M setup: great for the road, very good at the track with street tires.

Fun car. too bad they will make so few.

Stock tires are stretched so it's better to go wider anyways.

That looks neat when the spokes of the rim are in stopped-motion and the lug nuts and BMW emblem are spinning "backwards".

That drifting scares the $%#* out of me! I'd love to be able to do that on dry pavement but can't bear to try it in my car. Winter on snow is another story - most fun I get is practicing drifting on snow. Kudos to the drivers.

Yes! Great driving and it's awesome to see people already throwing around this agile car so soon after release. This will be my first rear wheel drive car, and I can't wait.

Brake dust on the front wheel makes me think a grey wheel will look great on VO. May have to get the stock wheels powder coated.

Yes that was at the press launch, you've seen pictures and footage on every other site ( most of it provided by BMW )

we just had more fun than everyone else . Maybe because it was my first time at one of these things. Same with the " review"

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Nice, but the crappy music covers up the sound of that awesome motor.

Can you re-post a version with the pure sound?
