BMWCCA Oktoberfest Roll Call

BMWCCA O'Fest is less than a month away.
I am signed up for 3 track days at Laguna Seca: Wed/Thurs/Friday.

Who else from this forum will be on track, and which days?

Super excited about the trip!

I have a fabspeed exhaust that deletes the side mufflers and the center muffler and my iPhone shows that my car is at 102-103db from inside the cabin when I'm accelerating.

I'm attending. Doing the driving school on Thursday and Friday.

I have an axle back Megan exhaust. I hope that's not over the limit.

You just need to find out where the sound check station is and drive through it one gear higher at 85% throttle.

It's on the right side between turns 5 & 6.

No. Really looking forward to this. And hanging out with friends.

I actually returned to my stock exhaust for the trip. Don't want to have to worry about the sound meter.
