I must have--door panel says 50xx lbs.You are confusing gross weight with empty weight.
Gross weight is weight of the car plus its maximum payload, which for an M5 is about 1000 lbs of people and cargo.
An M5 weighs in around 4000 lbs empty with a full tank of fuel.
Check the specifications section of your owners manual, it lists the 'ready for the road' weight, which is weight of car, plus driver, plus full tank of fuel.
Glad you had fun at the track though! How'd the tires survive the beating you no doubt gave them?
Bremerton Motorsports Park. Mostly Miatas and lots of Corvettes. Even a bug!Where did you run? Was it the Everett event last week? A buddy of mine from Seattle races in C-Prepared all the time. We also have a guy from just North of Seattle come up here to our events in an E30 stroker 325ix.
Auto-x is a blast. I was hooked after my first event as well. :M5launch:
Yeah, really. I'm 3 for 3 now getting FTD at the BMWCCA autocrosses at the Performance Center...of course I've been autocrossing for 33 years, but with the right setup and driving style and a decent course, the M5 is definitely not crap. lovelove See some in-car video.crap? not sure about that but....
Not crap or even close to crap, it just takes slighly more skill, throttle modulation and being able to properly oversteer or drift when needed....
Not quite total crap.Yeah, no more using the M5 for autox. It's total crap. I pull good times compared to many cars, but not as good as I could be. I'm buying a track car.
