I played the little game on the facebook page, apparently I wasn't cut out to be a race car driver, only scored 408 out of 1000.

Good video though!

I saw that too--it was there the entire time--was that because the "timer" was on in the car?

I thought it looked a little cheesy to be honest...

Good video though--I like how this baby looks in motion, except at certain angles in turns, where the wheels look like they're 16'....so weird...

I remember reading awhile back about a telematics app on the future Ms where certain tracks are programmed in. I guess the track times menu on the idrive is part of or spawned from that?

Tried playing the game but the screen goes blank on me every time the game started. BMWs way of blocking non-UK entrants?

That is the Laptimer app which tracks your laps based on data collected by the car. Braking, steering angle, acceleration, ect. The ///m screen is a setting on the app which is basically a screen saver and letting you know the app is running. I have used it before on my x5 and my m3

Goes blank for me too. I hear narration, but the screen is black.

I dunno about that. Without being in the car and feeling when he accelerates and how he is handling the turn in and out, it would be hard to determine that via video.

Really? Watch it again than... Count how many times you see the car (with both drivers) pushing wide while they have the steering wheel cranked in a turn. Andy even reaches over to add steering input in one of the first sequences of the young guy driving. It continues to push.

All modern cars have understeer built into them, even Porsche's, but let's just hope this M235i and other new Bimmers aren't excessive.

And... fingers crossed for an M2.
