Went to BMW Performance Center in South Carolina in March and had the most amazing time! I did the Two-Day Car Control School... awesome!

Drove on a track with a 135, 335, M3, 535, 650i, as well as on their off-road track with an X5. You will learn the capabilities of your car with braking, sliding, emergency turning, etc. I have the same car you do, and loved this experience.

The skid pad is an amazing experience that is worth checking out on YouTube. You will practice coming out of these dangerous understeer and oversteer situations, which will in theory make you a better driver day-to-day.

This is not racing school, even though they cover some basics and you are being timed on the track. If your objective is to learn to race on a track, try something else. If your objective is to learn more about the capabilities and limits of your own car, then you will not regret this experience. I got a 10% discount for being a BMW CCA member. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
