I'm not familiar with the Orlando car scene, but notice that you will be a couple hours from a number of tracks with HPDE events. You can find the events at Chin Motorsports, PBOC, and Hooked on Driving. The best track in the area is Sebring, but it will beat the shit out of your car. There's also Daytona, PBIR, and Homestead. Avoid PBIR.

I'm currently in Orlando for school. Drop me a message when you get down here.

Also notice the pictures are from the Nürburgring, and your latitude/longitude places you in germany as well. Are you really comin from overseas and bringing your car with you for school?

The geographic coordinates are the entrance to the Nurburgring. Yes I'm coming from Germany and yes I'm bringing my car with me for school!

That's fucking awesome, but I'm sure that costs a ton of money. Which school you going to? UCF, valencia or full sail?

Updating this thread! I have made it to Orlando, I've started school ( UTI Tech 2 with FACT and BMW step) and I'm looking forward to meeting some fellow 1 series enthusiast in and around the Orlando area. Also looking to paint my wheels soon, and don't have a spare set to roll on! haha so if anyone is willing to let me borrow a set with tires for a week or so, that would be splendid!

Do you happen to live anywhere near Winter Park? Almost every evening I see a really nice 1-series that sounds amazing, frequently traveling down 436. Curious to know if this is you?

So, let me add to this thread. I will be moving to Sarasota area in June and am curious if there are any 1 Series/other BMW activities in Sarasota.

Uber - if you have not painted your wheels i have a set of 17" with A/S tires i could loan you for a few weeks. But like i said, won't be down there until mid June.

Interesting. Wheel color not to my taste, but i like the exterior/interior combination and the wheel style. Maybe i am just too old.
