Buttonwillow. Best viewed in 1080p fullscreen.
Recorded with a GoPro HD Hero2 and ContourRoam suction cup-mounted to the
bumpers of my E46 330Ci. This was my second track day since the year I got
my driver's license, so yes, I suck.
FYI: Drivers being passed usually eased off the gas to help other cars get
by, especially before corners. Also, I declined the overly generous
point-by from the much faster

Corvette Crashes During An AutoCross Event
This is the first time we've ever witnessed an accident at a speed ventures
autocross. It was a pretty fast track and it was his first time up since
his last break so the tires were pretty cold & so was the track.
Unfortunately the driver never touched his brakes after he lost control.
The driver was shaken up quite a bit, but he walked away.

E46 330ci (05/2001) converting to M3 SMG CS (03/2006)..
I did it my own except bodying and painting. I hope this video help
everybody to understand how this conversion could be done.
Lets make it clear, I made the conversion in the summer of 2010, and i
started collecting parts in the beggining of 2010. I tried to sell my car
but nobody cears to buy it, also i could buy a cheap m3 for 22000 eur plus,
so i had to take the decision and make it my own.
Also, summer 2010 taxis for my car was 800 euro, Now it is 1100+ 800=1900
Unleaded 95 , 2010 costed 0,87 euro per litter, and now 2012, 1.84 euro per
This period in Greece, you can buy m3 for 7000 euro, and nobody cears to
buy this car this time.
