I'm an above averaging commuting driver, but it looks like it'll be a good idea for me to sign up for performance driving school when I get the M4 in. Goood reality check for me! I don't intend to go tracking that often, but I think in cases when I might "accidentally" drift, at least I'll know what to do.

Don't turn DSC off. Hell, you can get a 240hp E36 to drift if you turned all the nannies off. Having said that, doing driving schools is never a bad idea.

Nice test, I can't get over how good the M3/4 looks with AY. IMHO, I think in the looks department, it slaughters the RS5.
