I'm pretty bad at describing it, lol. It's a bit dead to me as I'm driving M daily. But certainly more responsive compared to F10s

Best BMW Training I've been to so far.
Way better than the G11/G12.
Love this car, The M-Performance'd out 540's indoors at Pit Lane were my favorites. (And probably how my next car will be built honestly).
Had a Hot Lap with Adam Andretti and the other guy Shane (forgot his last name), plus i was there on the rainiest day so we were just sideways on the track the entire time.... COTA is an amazing place. It was awesome.

Great photos! You must have had a ton of fun at the event.
And yeah, the G30 looks fantastic.
The closer to black, the better.

Hey that's me in the second pic. Wish I could redo those two days, It was one of the best experiences of my life. The blue interior looked awful on the car that was at the unveiling (outside of hotel), but it looked pretty nice in the car I drove at the track. you definitely have to have the right color combo for it to not look like its from an 80's buick.

Hot Laps were a blast!
