On the timed runs I said, what the hell, and turned DSC off. My, what a difference and how much more fun it was. Definitely a lot more work for me to keep the car on track but so exhilarating. I'm kicking myself for doing those 7 practice runs with it on.
I went from 1.08 to 1.04 to 1.03 on the last run (but with 3 cone hits on last).
I didn't track my times on the practice laps but definitely much slower than that.

So much fun! I'm totally hooked.

I got a ton of compliments on the car. There were 2 E9x M3's, my E90 and another E93.

Sounds fun. Where did you do this? and how much did it cost? I'm up in Orange County and was looking for something like this.
