if you're into drag racing that's a whole different game that I personally have no interest in getting started, but tons of people like it and it's a safe environment to go enjoy your car.

as far as seat time per event
drag racing<auto X<trackday, although as far as cost and wear on items like tires go it's probably the reverse order

it's too bad that BMW has made a car that owners have to worry about overheating on track, even without computer tuning for the turbos. Unfortunatly it's just what BMW is doing lately, going more towards tech and gadgets and getting away from building trackworthy cars.

hopefully the 1 series will be what the 3 used to be when it shows up
Don't you know BMW is fixing the Oil cooler problem the 335 ran the 12hours of bathurst race and won w/Proceed to so I guess that wasn't a real track/or race huh? Don't automatically assume your a better drive then me because I know my car is more capable then yours and I won't assume your a worse or better then driver then me thats just stupid your idea is based on what? But like I said have fun whooping on 335's "Track star".
