Guess what, sounds like your friend is a better driver than the other 2 135 drivers. I had a guy in a miata beat me at an AutoX ... it was a POS 10 year old car with a a130 hp engine. But, he is a much better AutoXer than me .... had nothing to do with his car.

Wrong, Miatas are great cars, that's why they are widely used in many SCCA events.
He was probably a better driver than you and miatas do well on short tracks.

2100lb rwd car, great handling, compared to a porky 3100 lb 1 series

I spoke to an M engineer who says that over the past few months they have mangaged to remove some weight out of the car.

The Cabrio has been spotted at the FIZ.


Coincidence? , Rewriting History? or Ideal Bedfellows?

BMW expected to announce DTM return soon
BMW are expected to announce their return to the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters shortly.
"The BMW Board of Management is going to decide in the coming weeks. We look forward to once again welcome BMW to the DTM," said ITR board member Thomas Betzler to Focus.
BMW last took part in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters during the eighties, with Roberto Ravaglia claiming the title in 1989.

The DTM is scheduled for new regulations next year, a step mainly done to attract new manufacturers. BMW has been present during the discussions on the coming regulations.

"We have presented our concept to BMW and we know that it is going to get a benevolent reception in Munich. It is not without a reason that BMW has been regulars at all major DTM meetings," said Betzler.

Audi and Mercedes have been alone in the DTM since 2005 and most recent champions Audi are hoping to see BMW joining them.

"We have worked feverishly behind the scenes on the new regulations that are going to take effect in 2011. I am pretty sure that this decision attracts more manufacturers, perhaps even one from Bavaria," said Audi sales director Peter Schwarzbauer.

If BMW returns to the DTM, they are not likely to remain in the World Touring Car Championship.

Not such a fan of the power green, at least online. I wonder if it is one of those colors that looks better and different in person....

Hmmm, I was pretty pumped for Inka, but not sure I'm in love with the metallic orange just yet. I'll hold my opinion until we see some pics of it on the 1. I absolutely love the look of the ///M3 GTS in orange with the black wheels.
