I didn't try to race him because it's stupid, but there is a good chance it could have been a 550i. Regarding sleepers, I'd probably get a MB E63 AMG Wagon and debadge that instead, but that's me.

Maybe you could lease a car in France. Granted though a Renault or a Citroën (won't even consider a Peugeot) isn't as fun as a BMW.

FYI: Berlin to Frankfurt is about a 5 hour drive driving at 150 mph when possible. So Berlin to Nürburgring would be about 6 to 7 hours is my guess.

I had a 420d rental that had the anti-glare high beam (Xenon bulbs of course), and it was very helpful when hitting 210 kph (130 mph) late at night.

The ED part sounds pretty good.

How about taking a night train from Munich instead of flying? There is one that goes direct to Rome (no connections) but I don't think it runs daily.
