    From me to you ....

    A friend of mine in Ger. just recently did a track day at "The Ring" with his club.

    Although he drives a Lotus, he brought his camera to get shots in HDR since he heard a P-car club was going to be there that day as well and they were bringing their high dollar machinery. A couple of CGT's and GT1 showed up along with a Gembella 997 and 2-3 RUFs of various vintage.

    He came came across this amusing little tidbit on a 996 GT3RS and I thought I'd share with all ...


























    I don't care - I still LOVE the 944 body style! I wish they'd bring it back!


    He said this actually gave the N/A 911 C2's and C4's headaches and was able to keep up! Driver skill or could the new M3 be for real?




    This car was the "attention getting whore of the day."

    His tool - He can't keep up in the straights, but at the braking points and turns he whizzes by them.

    Re: From me to you ....

    Is that Cobalt on the CGT? Beautiful. It never did much for me in silver. That blue is very striking, though.

    Re: From me to you ....

    What's up with the tail lights on the orange GT3RS? The "center" lamps are illuminated and so is the high mounted brake light. Are the GT3's braking lamps different than a 997? I believe the "center" lamps on my 997 are for the rear fog lights. (Or maybe I'm just dreaming about which lamps illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed as I'm usually not following my own car!)

    This isn't an M3. It's probably a 335i...

    I agree this looks like a 335 with an M sport package.

    Whatever it is, it's messy styling IMO.

    The front end looks waaay to fabulous, overdone and complicated. COMPARE IT TO: The sides which look nice and simple.

    It's a hint of how "pressurized" that "gotta-have-flair" styling policy at BMW must be.

    YES!!! DEFINITELY.

    Re: From me to you ....

    Ditto! Brought back memories of my couple of days at the Ring.

    Re: From me to you ....

    The F-kills sticker is a gas. I imagine that when you kill 5 more you just add another sticker That'd be fun to get one of those.

    Re: From me to you ....

    UPDATE:
    The BMW is not the new M3 as I stated.
    It is a 335i, and according to my friend, the owner did some heavy work with the Turbos, ECU, exhaust and put in an LSD to get it to keep up with the 911's.

    It's supposed to be a sleeper.
