How many plan on taking their f30 to the track.

Considering car forums lean more towards enthusiasts than general consumers... I'm wondering how many F30 owner/enthusiasts plan on taking their car to the track. (semi-joking with this reminder) Remember, BMW corporate read the forums. You just might want to put your answer in the poll only.

Highly unlikely. I have much better toys for the purpose.

The 335i is my alternate DD and winter beater.

The Nürburgring is the Mother of all Tracks and any F30 will do fine there.

I'm planning on doing someting at Assen(Moto GP track) or Zandvoort if I have the time. I'ts been a while since I tracked my ex E90 M3 (2009) at those tracks....

I hope the brakes will stay fine, which I doubt.

Just in case anybody "official" is reading this thread, I would never use my car in any way which might possibly violate the terms of the warranty. This poll is all theoretical and for entertainment purposes only. End of disclaimer.

What was i thinking ?? I was driving on that piece of road, thinking i was on a track....

You are absolutely right, the Nurb'Ring is not a track, it's a privately managed public road!
Damn me, yes... for having too much imagination..

Here is my signature as well , i accept this disclaimer as well, that's why i also choose the : "I only drive enthusiastically my car on regular public roads."

what would my "Luxury" wink wink 4-door Saloon/Sedan do on a track...
worthless!

In trying to reach my hotel in a small town of Nurburg, we Somehow go lost and found ourselves on a very expensive 20 kms long toll road that was going no where.... Silly germans for doing a highway that takes you back where you started... i thought i was in some spatial/time warp hole...
