Spins and highlights - BMW 330Ci @ Buttonwillow 13CW track day (Speed Ventures)
Some spins and passes as I try to chase a GT-R, Viper, M3 and others around
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

8 Year Old Boy Rides in a Full Bolt On BMW 335i - HD!
My 8 year old nephew, Nick, is in town and we decided to go for a little
spin (he has never been in my car before). It's great seeing his reaction
after a few hard pulls in the car. He's a great kid and loves fast cars.
His love of cars comes from playing Need for Speed, Gran Turismo, and
watching Nascar on TV occasionally. Enjoy!

Big Willow BMW 330Ci 2/8/09
1st time on Big Willow Very fun track! And yes turn #9 is tricky, but
IMHO the track is not very technical--but speed becomes an issue--I'm going
how fast into a turn!? Ohoo...Excellent group of cars in red RG.
BMW 330i, 325i, e46, Lower Control Arms and Tie Rods How to Change out, Repair
How to remove and replace your steering tie rod(s) and lower control arm(s)
in an e46 BMW Sport. If your BMW's front end is clunking when you hit the
brakes or your car wanders on uneven pavement, it's usually your lower
control arm ball joints (built into the lower control arm) or your control
arm bushing. Under normal driving conditions you should replace the lower
control arm bushing every 60k miles and the entire control arm and bushing
as a set every 120k miles. I also replace the steering tie rods because you
are already in the area and it provides better clearance to remove the
lower control arms. Check your tires because if your front suspension has
degraded, you probably are experiencing uneven wear in the tires. Always
wear safety glasses or goggles and gloves for protection. Always get a
proper alignment soon after this procedure.

enough power but better brakes and handling ;)
