Before T-Mobile, I would buy Ortel Mobile SIM cards from a vending machine in FRA. It was 10 Euros.

That doesn't look that bad.

I curbed the wheels on my car probably 2 months after I got it. My detail guy took care of it.

I think the Regal is a great car.

I like the 520d. I rented one (F11) from Sixt (Mannheim). It was so much better than the E Class or the A6 I've received in the past. The F11 convinced me so much that 6 months later I bought an F10...

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 CitroŽn (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 NŁrburgring would be about 6 to 7 hours is my guess.
