E90 M3 Infineon [video]

With 5000 miles on my E90 M3 (100% stock), took it for a beautiful trackday at Infineon. Here's a video my of personel best lap.



Used Harry's Laptimer, which seemed to be a bargain for $20. Mounted on the dash with a Ram mount, but windows are required to be open, causing all the unfortunate road noise.

Just had the car for 3 months and I'm loving it! Took the kids to daycare, removed the 2 car seats, drove to the track, and came home in the comfort of a luxury car. This is the best car in the world.

I agree, and that is a nice lap time! Infineon is my favorite track. Who was running this event?

That is awesome...

So very jealous of your Infineon access. Brother did some sort of R8 experience there and says it's amazing.

It really does look like a fantastic track--a total roller coaster with all the elevation changes and turns. And right there with access to Sonoma/Napa. Can't get better than that! I'd move there if it weren't for the welfare state of California. (Although with the exorbitant taxes we pay here and the deplorable condition of our roads, sometimes I think NY isn't any better...)
