    Just picked up the 2012 M3 from BMW of Fairfax (James Duerbeck). Proceeded to sit in Beltway traffic, the new DCT trans hunting in auto mode for the right gear! It's definitely going to take some...

    Thoughts on M3 with M-DCT?

    I'm thinking of trading in my '11 335xi for a CPO M3 with M-DCT (2008 and newer).

    Anyone with any thoughts? Seems like a no-brainer, but would like to hear if anyone has an opinion (positive or...

    greywarden: as Gerry just said, MazdaDrivers is out of business as I too understand it. My only gripe with the NCC is that they don't allow convertibles in their track events. That said, there are...

    Don't know what he'd charge for your car, but Ed York did a great job on the clutch/tranny/rear main seal in my Miata. Highly recommend Ed -- doubt you could find any pro who can do it as well for...

    I used to use the Valentine V1 (until it was stolen out of my car) -- I did get a ticket with laser, and yes the V1 did very helpfully let me know that I was getting a ticket. The V1 has...

    Not to mention a very sore point with me, allowing convertibles with roll bars, race seats, harnesses and arm restraints to participate! I would support Driver's Schools if only they'd let me. As...

    I'll take the 9AM slot if still available. Guessing 85whp and 80 wtq.

    Can I do this in my Miata? If so, do I get a discount for comic relief (when I estimate WHP and WTQ)?

    Actually, this was day 2 of 2, not sure exactly when it happened during the day, but as a participant at the event I wasn't aware of it until a few days later when I happened to see the video posted...

    If the Viper Attack is the one I found when I googled it, that looks like the front straight before Turn 1 at VIR. I have a hard time figuring out what the Viper was doing to induce the off track...

    Hey Mike, hope all is well and you're still getting out on the ice!

    Here's a link to the video, it truly is scarier than I remembered. A collision at those speeds and those angles (looks like the...

    It was coned off, but there was a video posted (I can probably find the link on the TrackDaze forum), one car obviously didn't know/forgot about the change from Full to Grand East and was just...

    From the VIR website, looks like MazdaDrivers will be there the weekend after Marque Madness, but only running the North course. For me, since I can only do 2 days, I would choose Marque Madness...

    I don't know Dave personally, but last year when I was going to miss the VIR event due to a blown diff, Dave helped me source a loaner diff (from Bret DePedro) that enabled me to go to the event. ...

    I heard from Mike Wirt earlier this week, and he said that the pricing would be available "very soon". I'm considering going this year; last year I opted for MazdaDrivers the following day, largely...

    Woody, I think the system from last year was fine, I have no complaints with it. I thought that experience might be a good divider; I agree it might be hard to implement. I'd have no problem...

    I'm OK with the current system for non-BMW. That said, the only alternative that I can think of is to divide the participants by Auto-X experience (and I can't say that this would be a better way of...

    I've never run with NASA, and only twice (and that was a few years ago) with SCCA. I haven't looked recently, but based on my mods, I'm not sure where I would fall under the SCCA classifications. I...

    I'm going to try to attend. I certainly prefer last year's non-BMW classing to the prior year's (which was in part based on tires, which in my case pushed me into a higher category). As a non-BMW...

    I've heard lots of good things about the Blizzaks. My second set of wheels have Dunlop Winter Sport SPs on them, bought the wheels and tires both from Tirerack.com (Gary). I do not go with run flats...

    This car's too good to be used and abused on the track, she's tenderly and lovingly driven! My Miata, on the other hand, is very well suited for track use and abuse. New clutch/transmission almost...

    Got an '11 335 xi sedan (red) from James Duerbeck at Fairfax. Good guy. Turn in of the leased '07 335 was as easy as handing over the keys. Loving the new 335xi, the all wheel drive makes a BIG...

    I'm close to making a deal with James Duerbeck at Farfax BMW for a new '11 335xi (ending my '07 335i lease).

    Anyone know if I can use my '17 wheels from my 335i (non-sport package) on the 335xi...

    BMW Dealer recommendations?

    I dealt with VOB when I leased my 335, the guy I dealt with is no longer there. I was OK with the sales process at VOB (what's not to be OK with? You give the money, they give the keys!).
