COMMENTS

BMW participated in the 2011 National Aftersales Convention in Las Vegas at the end of March where they put on a live driving event to showcase the entire range of BMW Performance parts offerings. The event provided a back-to-back driving experience comparing regular factory cars and models fitted with BMW Performance parts. Here's a video capturing some driver reactions and recapping the event.

Interesting to see the adaptive brake light feature at the very end of the clip (on the M3) work. It seemed to trigger just after the regular brake lights turn on during the very heavy braking. Never seen this in action before...

It's amazing how much faster the exhaust and stripes will make the car.
