Far out, such an awesome day!! You guys will definately love it tomorrow!! Flying down the straight at 180km/h in the 335 coupe M Sport behind Geoff Brabham in the E92 M3 was unreal.

Eastern creek was awsome!

Fast laps were the highlight 200kph down the straight - I want more!!!

Very professionally done top marks to BMW and dealer network for paying for it

Awesome day
Throwing the 3 series cars around in some great situations
Managed to get a couple of laps with the M3 driver (And he really gave it some) Just an unbelievable car...Might need to get one.

Skidpan was pretty cool aswell.
There was an old guy there, can't remember his name, but he had a black M3 in the parking lot. He was insane! But then again, he'd had a fair bit of track experience and even drove stock cars.

Was that in a 335i? I can get my stock Honda Accord Euro 6MT to about 185kmh on the straight so I'm interested to see how well the 335i would do

Even my wife got it over 200km/h down the straight....and that was backing off real early (Brabham slowed down heaps for turn one). I think with some late braking for turn one around 220km/h would be possible.

Had very good experience this afternoon.
It's easily to do 200km/h in the straight. My frd did 240km/h following the Red M3. Wanna to challenge it again!

Driving in wet is very interesting, too!

It really proves how good the DSC/DTC is on the new BMWs!

I think I would have got to over 200k in the 325ci if it wasn't for "traffic" the 335 just gets you there a whole lot faster!

The thing is you don't want to stop but the signs to the right hand side whizing past saying 300, 200, 100 are a clue that you need to use the other pedal!!

I think if it wasn't for the pace car we would have seen a few go off the end of the track!
