    Hey,

    sorry if this is a repost, don't think it is though:

    fantastic vid of the e60 m5 ring taxi :) quite well produced as well. The drifting put a big grin on my face. Shame it didnt really show the brute speed of it tho very well.

    Tom.

    They change the tyres every 10 laps, the brake pads every 20 and the suspension every 50 :eek:

    Good vid but the "artistic" pauses in some sections are damn annoying.

    drifting != win, would much rather watch a proper lap.

    Nice vid, but what is it with the producers of car videos???
    WHY O WHY do people feel the need to ruin a perfectly good v10 soundtrack with drivel music??

    I understand your need to hear the engine in such cars and respect that.
    But excuse me, drivel music - how dare you.
