    I had the day off so I thought I'd spend it on a good cause :)

    I drove:
    • Z4 Roadster 3.0i
    • Z4 Coupe 3.0si <-by far, my favorite :bowdown:
    • 335i Sedan
    • 335i Convertible <-also, :bowdown:
    • 650i Convertible
    • X5 4.8i

    All automatics ftl and no ///M cars, but I still had a blast driving them all. I was constantly jumping in and out of cars so I only had the chance to get these two shots..

    And here's a vid of me taking the 650i up to 100 :naughty: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLf-TPMJtYY

    All in all, I had a great time. The staff is real cool, free snacks and sandwiches :yum:, local radio station was there handing out free shit, perfect day out, etc. If this is coming around to your area, I'd definitely recommend attending.

    No. BMW would just be asking for it to be wrecked. Not everyone can handle a car that's just short of being as quick as a Lamborghini.

    I went nuts over the Z4 Coupe. It's the only car out of all the ones I drove that felt right as soon as I started driving it. I can only imagine how incredible the M Coupe is :bowdown:

    Loved it, but I'd much prefer the coupe. It doesn't feel like it has 360 hp. Then again, I was driving an automatic; a manual gearbox would probably change that.

    Yep, my first one.

    Why didn't you like it? Did you press the Sport button when you got in? It makes a hell of a difference.

    the 335 >>>>> :eek4:

    But I'm glad you went- its for a good cause afterall :cool: I know I don't mind driving BMWs for charity (even if they are auto)

    I was most impressed with how nimble it is. It just hugs the road and doesn't let go. You feel every 1 of its 255 hp because of how well it puts it to the ground.

    The interior is a little tight and the rear window is almost useless but it didn't bother me. I'm of average height and I felt very comfortable inside.

    I'm not a big fan of the front bumper (which is why I'd have to get the M Coupe :)) but I like everything else about the exterior.

    What else do you want to know?
