So you can drive your beast there.

Cost is 300 dirham for 3 sessions whereby the duration of each session is 20 minutes.

Interesting, right?!?!?!?!
Wow dude...that is so cool...

I'm working from about 4-9pm.

If I can give some advice to anyone before they drive on a track for the 1st time.
It's not a race, and it's not "racing"
You are not insured for damage to your car.
Start steady and learn the lines and you will be kinder to you and your car.
Do not follow the lines of the car infront. If they go off you will follow.

I will be on hand so if you guys make it down i will put my life in your hands and help out

Make sure you book.

Will-the 335 with a chip should be a damm good car. The handling on the E90 in the 24hr race was on a par with our ex factory M3 GTR. It felt light in the corners for such a heavy car.

Certainly is a real bummer bro sorry to hear it. As I told you Ehssan is definitely your best source but he is away in Syria I will ask him.
My new car is ordered and should be here this week, had to go with the available 335i's from stock so not my ideal choice but I had a test drive today in a coupe and that baby is fast, doesnt have the raw grunt of the M5 but I reckon up to 100kmh it will pip all but the best E39 beasts, we will see.

Hi Prince,

Ed I test drove the car today, no turbolag at all the car is mental and just goes from stop up to max revs in each of the 6 gears before changing gear, (ME LIKE) it is so light in comparison to the M5 and dances around the corners, the salesman was sh1tting himself to be honest though, he looked visibly shaken when we got out of the car, he told me to slow down when I saw this big red sign on the dash computer but it turned out to be the speed limit warning.
The test car had paddles but mine doesnt but it does have 6 speed sequential auto, wasnt impressed with the paddles be honest look a bit gay and too small and close together, almost like a couple of silver lobster claws behind the wheel.
Mine is Arctic Metallic silver with lemon leather interior and walnut burr trim, usual stuff satnav, adaptive headlights, active steering, tv, voice control , bluetooth, tv etc etc.

The main selling point for me was the 5 year/100,000 km service inclusive and repair, 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, 5 years free recovery service and 1 years full comp insurance................so basically all I will pay for for the next 5 years is tyres and glass, everything else is supplied by bmw all services and oil and parts etc, even brake pads and lights are covered.
So thats me then guys some might say slowing down a bit, maybe so, the limiter cuts in at 240kmh but the 0-100kmh is astounding especially the first 0-60kmh just seems to want to go on and on. Should be getting the car in the next few days so will meet up and let you have a look then.
