...the nasty carbon deposits on your exhaust tips get baked off after some 7000-8000rpm running on an 85-degree day at NJMP Lightning. Clean!

You don't think of semi-trailers as making "wide right turns"...instead, they late-apex right-handers

...you actually buy a low mileage, well maintained, nicely prepped E36 M3 to play on the track with. And then convince your spouse you still need to hang onto your newly acquired APEX ARC-8's wrapped in Continental Hoosiers because... well because. The E90 needs to get and romp ocassionally too!

...you convince said husband Yes, I DO need two M3s. Even if we only have a 2-car garage, 1-car trailer and 4 cars.

I have this set-up too, I had to concede a ZO6 to the husband and he is happy again. Now to work on the trailer so the old M3 does not need to be driven to far away tracks, in case something lets loose.

You, m'lady, are my hero. You also have an M5?

A trailer is worth it's weight in gold. It's so nice to have coverage from the elements + peace of mind should anything go awry.

Our car stories are weirdly similar, very cool.
I do have AAA premium, so I a covered for 200 miles but a trailer would hold all my tools, spare wheels, tent... if only I had a place for a trailer. Stupid 2 car garage...

Having your GF use the On Board Timer to track your progress through the same "Figure 8" exit day in and day out...

NYS only ... You think the I-684 is your own personal AutoBahn, where you test the 160mph limit (at 2am), because you wanted to know the drag coefficient.
