So, you track your car? I am considering taking
my M540i to the track in november. I was going
to let the wife drive it in one of the beginner
groups. I would drive my IT Scirocco in the
instructor group, but take the 540 out for a few
"fun runs" ;-). I know the car will be awesome
on track, but I am a bit concerned about flogging
it too much. What has been your experience with
taking your car to the track? How hard is it on
brakes/tires/other stuff?
: EDC III is about as close to an active suspension system as you're going to find. Per the previous poster's description, the car does react immediately to changes in road harshness as well as your driving enthusiasm.

: On the track, I set the switch to S(port) and make sure my kidney belt is fastened. Subjectively, it's about as stiff as the Dinan Stage II.

: '95 M540i
