BMW X5 e53 Sport 4.4 - Snow driving
Amazing snow performance with my X5 ... The rubber is Yokohama Parada Spec-X all season - excellent tires!! 20x9 front, 20x11 rear Rohanna RC10 wheels, with 255/50/R20 front, 295/45/R20 on the rear (not the spec, I know, but I wanted more sidewall rubber for comfort). The combo is excellent, very smooth, without any loss of the cornering handling. The first part of the road has been an accident landmark in snow days. The second part is on private roads, when after getting to my community, there are steep hills to conquer . . . for the first time I just breezed through it!

BMW E53 X5 4.6IS On Board Lap Of Nordschleife Nürburgring Bridge To Gantry 10th September 2012
Video of my E53 BMW X5 4.6IS. This was my second ever lap round the ring. Watching it back I can see a lot of improvement is needed. Learning the actual track layout for one. Also letting off the throttle when I don't need to. Problem I found even with the DSC completely turned OFF it was still cutting the power as I came out of the corners on full throttle. The "bong" sound you hear is sounded each time the car reaches 75mph set by the OBC. Comments & tips/advice would be appreciated. I can't wait to go back to the ring again this year! Thanks for watching. P.S - Skip to 7:41 for an outside trackside view :)
