Ok cats. It's official. I know we talked about a trip to the Nurburgring and it sounded like a good idea, but I have deeded to take the plunge for real. Life is too short and I figured why not. It is a little expEnsive but not much more expensive than just taking a euro vacation. Bmwcarringschool.com is the site. It is about $4,000 to ship the car out there and back, and I will be there for 3 weeks. If u rent a modest car I. Germany it is about $1,000 a week so I am coming out close to even. However I get the joy of driving my car flat out on 1. The autobahn and 2. On the ring.

The ring school is kinda steep considering what it costs to ship the car but I figure I may as well get some professional instruction driving the world's greatest track so i can enjoy the track and so i can still end up with a car to bring home!

Either way, if someone else wants to ship their car and do the school or if they just want to tool around Germany for the summer and hit the nurburging on a tourist day (very cheap) then let me know!

SPONSORS: here is your chance to put your logo on the car and sell some goods in Germany!! Hahaha! Or you can just donate funds to the blueGTR vacation fund. Remember, a car is a terrible thing to waste!

I am going 1. for the summer to hang out, 2. for the BMW Ring school, 3. for hits and giggles. When is your friend going? If he is going to the school and will be there from July -Aug then give me a call.

haha! I think you mean vicariously! Absolutely going to have fun. Just buy a plane ticket and come on out! You can take it for a spin, because when I go to DC I am going to want to borrow your car!

I will live my dream bicuriously through your eyes until I get a chance to go to the ring with my own car.

Good on you! You will never forget it as there is nowhere else like it on Earth.

I will be there for an event from the 25th - 28th June: http://www.nurburgring100.com/
And I might go back for a track day (as opposed to a public day) on August 16th. If you're going to be there at either of those dates, let me know.

The 22s are no longer on my car. The dubs (slang for 20 inch of course are on most of our cars). However, if someone wants to buy my gram lights and or trade them for some stock wheels, I may take them. Let me know!

Please tell me you're gonna swap the dubs out when you hit the ring

CAr arrives July 15 - then I leave first week in August. I live in CA but due to cost and some convenience I may ship from the Gulf coast.

, TX

When are you thinking about going?
Will your car be shipped form East or West coast?

That sounds like my idea of a dream vacation - only thing missing is Kate Beckinsale coming along - or did you leave that part out to avoid even worse fits of jealousy from other forum-goers?

I'll have to make do with Bondurant and random wenches...
