Actually, it's correct. They both face the same way, so one side always looks wrong. It's really weird...! My paint guy is totally OCD and he pointed it out to me.

Great track pic. Looking to upgrade to a set of 433 wheels with the black / silver face combo. So many wheel choices, but these are on top of my list..

Planning on a trip to Munich next year to visit the BMW M delivery center and eventually the ring. In your opinion, since you've been on the track, what's the best way to experience the track if you don't have your own ride? Ring Taxi? Rental?

Sounds like an awesome trip. I spend a lot of time at the Ring. Getting close to 1000 laps now, all in an M5 of one flavour or another. I can recommend loads of things - rentals, instructors, restaurants, places to walk around the track etc. When you want to go, PM me and we can email about it. I can try and be there at the same time too. To answer your question directly, I can lap faster than the Ring Taxi anyway (cos they have a limit on tyres - not because I'm better than a pro driver!!), and I don't charge €250/lap, so come with me. You'll be in an F10 M5 as well so that's surely the best option If we coincide our trips, my mates will all be there with various models of 911 GT3 and they can all drive sub 8 minutes as well, so you can get some great experiences without paying silly money. I was just there with Micheal Levitas and his son, and Mike Steen actually (I'm told they are big in the US, or so they told me ). We had great fun giving rides and eating steaks

Actually I think you'll find THIS is the way round the 'Ring...



...though the M5 is considerably more comfortable.

That's for people who've had a lobotomy...

BTW Simon, talking of lobotomies, I accidentally posted an F10 post in the E39 forum. Can you move it for me?!

I can't, no, because I'm only an admin on this forum. But I've asked nicely and hopefully someone will come along and do it shortly.

Speaking of the stickers, where did you get them? Mine are very faded.

I have Singapore Gray over Sakhir Orange interior, so I'm a huge fan of what you did. Great look!

I found them on eBay. They seem to do the job and haven't melted or faded yet
