Ase - glad I caught this thread. It looks like Donny, Frank, Paul and I missed you by a day. We had a blast at the Audi event the next day. A bit of rain about halfway through the event made things interesting. The traction control on the IS was going nuts. Audi held a great event, even for us BMW guys.

As you said, half the fun was the drive there. Sorry I missed you, but I look forward to seeing the new E92 beast someday!

I turned it off briefly while we were waiting in the pits, but wussed out and turned it back on before I started. The way I was driving, they'd have to reset way too many cones after my run, had I left it off.

In the first sales presentation we went through the guy said that when all wheeled drive cars break traction, they break evenly unlike RWD or FWD. So i figured, what the heck, lets see if he was right. He was basically right, but i think that the cars were too underpowered to really test it out. Maybe if it were a 335xi instead then we really would have had fun.

This was also the reason I drove the TT on the brand drive so relentlessly.
