Meth is easy with the BMW and with the right software. The JB4 does everything for you and the fail safe is built in. It's a beautiful system. So much easier than the stuff I had to deal with my old STi. The main point of the 50/50 meth is for cooling purposes to pull more timing. In your case considering how hot it is I think it would be beneficial. It also cleans your motor.
Wow! 4,050 lbs without you in it! Is your car a convertible as well? A buddy of mine went with me with his 2011 335i Vert and he weighed in at 3,955 lbs without him in it (4,166 lbs with him in it).

I may very well end up running meth in the future, but I want to see how the car does with the bolt ons only first. I'm a bit of a power/speed junkie, so meth is definitely not out of the question.

Very impressive 60' times with cheapo tires too!

Thanks! The tires are pretty crappy. I drive so much that I needed something with a longer treadlife as I was burning through sets too quickly. The down side of that is that they are not as sticky (on the street or on the track).

I was debating about going on Sunday, so I took advantage of the Friday weather before that Sunday.

Sad I couldnt make it, but I am happy to see a bimmer brother made the best out of it.
Thanks, bud.
