Let's Start off with this one

Sorry, I've been so busy that I haven't downloaded all the photos from this trip.

South Carolina is a nice place, but BMW makes it much nicer!

X5, 330s, M3, M5, Z8 all over the place!

X5 School is very fun, even if you don't own an X5!

The 4.6is attached was one of the instructor's vehicles. The rest of us drove 4.4's, which was great!

It was a small class of around 10-12 people with 3 instructors. You partner up with someone in a X5 4.4 and just test that baby to the limits, more in line with the safety features, such as braking, handling, etc...

What impressed me most was the handling and braking. The X5 definitely out handles and out performs many other sports cars out there.

It was also nice to see all the M5, M3, 330, Z8, X5s all the vehicles at the center. I was drooling the whole time.

I definitely would recommend taking this class, it's fun, very fun, yet informative too.

Spartansburg, South Carolina, where the BMW Manufacturing plant is. They have M school and other classes there too.

You should try it sometime.
