Pics of the M5 and M3 at the track

My dealer has a membership at a local track, Autobahn Country Club, and last Monday they invited my Dad and I to the track with them. The Sepang M5 is my Dad and I have a steel grey M3.

These are some amazing machines...

Enjoy

its funny looking at the second picture because the M5 is so much bigger than all the other cars. It almost looks out of place, but its nice it to know it can hold its own against those smaller two door cars.

My first thought was "What's a minivan doing in the picture?"
