    BMW and Microsoft team up through Forza Motosport 4 to give away a brand new 2012 BMW F10 M5

    Forza Motosport is awesome, this is well known. Forza Motorsport is the latest game in the series and reviews across the board praise the game as automotive nirvana. The new BMW M5 graces the cover and it is only natural that BMW wanted to share in the publicity the game is receiving. This led to the creation of the "M5 Forza Cup" which will award a brand new M5 to the person with the fastest virtual laptime with the new M5. You have until November 26 to set the fastest laptime to make the final group of 16 which will compete for the main prize, go get your copy already!

    Statement from Microsoft, "This competition allows gamers who have signed up as members of the Xbox Live online community or at www.bmw.de/forza4 to push for the quickest time in the new BMW M5. Visitors to selected BMW branches, BMW Welt in Munich and the BMW showroom in Berlin will also have the chance to enter the competition. The 16 finalists will lock horns in the final of the BMW M5 Forza Cup at BMW Welt on November 26 2011.

    Be prepared to shave more than tenths with it, it makes a world of difference in GT5, i was able to shave off 40seconds on the Nordschleife in a BMW 120d Click here to enlarge

    There is NO WAY anyone with a controller can rule over someone with a steering wheel (if both have skills, that is)
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    You just do not have the precise control with a controller that you have with a steering wheel.

    No you won't.
    Pick a PC game I also have, say Shift 2, and I will beat you in a race, with my steering wheel.

    There is someone in the middle of nowhere that probably isn't old enough to drive let alone own a car - he will beat everyone.
