ok so my Initial post was correct, also my co worker just informed me that there is a BMW driving close to North Carolina where you can pay and drive all the models for the entire day and there seems to be a race track. Do you have any idea if this is correct

Don't know the cost, but they offer all types of driving schools from teen to M schools. You also can abuse their M's for fun at a cost.
It's a great place to spend a day (or two).
