More track videos - BMW 135i HPDE
Went out to homestead again yesterday (2011 12 17) and had some fun.
This is where my car decided to give me the middle finger and not boost anymore (Possible boost leak, stuck wastegates, or bad gas). I uploaded it because I think the camera angle's cool.

The 135i is a very nice car for a trackday.
It is perfectly balanced in high speed corners. And faster then most other cars on track.
Only downsides are understeer in low speed corners and underqualified brakes when you really start to go for laptimes.
But I had it in a 4-wheel slide at 120mph on a crest, and I only scared myself when I glanced at the speedo, not while handling the car.
Top tip: do not look at the speedo while in a high speed corner!
