The Pedal-to-the-Metal, Totally Illegal, Cross-Country Sprint for Glory

BMW related. Not E9x though but a very interesting read. Hope you enjoy.

I sold dinan stuff to one of this guys best friends and have spoken to him. He has a book coming out and I am supposed to get an autograpped copy. My customer showed my picstures of his M5 and it looks like something out of star trek inside.

Keeping that average speed is really hard. I tried keeping 100 on longer trips several times and it is as hard as it gets.

should try it with a 335d when they're finally available here . the extra range he’d get from the diesel would probably save a couple fuel stops.

Whats the point of trying to avoid/lose the cops? He's not going to win, unless he wants to break the law.

If he gets stopped it's pretty much game over for both the record attempt and possibly his freedom with all those illegal modifications to the vehicle.
