I like the car and really like the color...that's a really nice picture of LeMans Blue. Only complaint is your pant legs are a tad long for the dress code rules.

I wandered over from e90post...

I registered for this track day but can't find any info. What's the helmet (and other safety equipment) policy? What about safety inspections?

If you don't have a helmet they are available at the track. The week prior to the event you'll get a email with the vehicle safety checklist. It's your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is safe for the track. It's recommended that you wear long pants but as you can see by some of these post, shorts are........well you can figure that one out ...........Phil

And a bandanna... it's now required equipment if you wear shorts.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Getting closer....

(Two problems: one, it doesn't have an ///M on it. Second, there's not enough material to cover up bigjae's legs.)


Of course, there is a made-to-order option:

43 days until the big event.......now if you just want to hit the track I'm sure there are a couple of guys going this weekend or next. There's always someone in the M Club sneaking to MSR ......................Phil

Would ya'll be interested in me coming down for track support for you guys?


tire changing/ suspension adjustments/tire adjustments/whatever etc, etc, etc?
If so, what would you like to see brought down there for track support?
I would do it all for free as well. I have never been to MSR, except to play with the shifter carts and go carts...... Just want to get some exposure with this group. I have a turbo E36 M3 that i wouldnt mind playing with a drivers edge session...... but thats down the road.

I would like to meet some of Ya'll. in the past, Im sure i have worked on some of your cars when you bring them to the dealership........

Feel free to come down and check things out. Most guys bring the stuff they need for a track day so just come and catch a ride or two and enjoy the day.
After that you can decide if you would like to volunteer your services during track days.............Phil
