I think I missed my chance to go. Not interested in any new cars from here out. Always wanted my e92 to be euro delivered but was 3 years to late

You don't need to buy a new car to buy a plane ticket.

I wish I had seen this video a almost year ago when it was first posted!

I did my first laps at Nurburgring on May 22, 2016. This video explains everything perfectly. I even had to come back out to the petrol station to refuel. The blue ticket booth in the first parking lot on the right wasn't there, but we parked in that lot and walked over to the main ticket booth to buy our pass.

I see that Mondolemite posted earlier that he was prepping for his May ED delivery. We met each other at Nurburgring during that trip! He was with the RSTouring group and our #CentennialMTour group hooked up with them at Nurburgring. We all followed Nurburgring with a track day at Circuit Park Zandvoort the following Tuesday and Spa Francorchamps on Thursday.

Hey Mondo! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip after we parted ways at Spa! I hope that you're enjoying your M3 as much as I'm enjoying my M4!

That's kind of why I gave this thread a "bump". The 'Ring is on everyone's bucket list - and it doesn't hurt to give out some friendly tips to make your ED that much more AWESOME!

The ring is an awesome experience and should be bucket list for most enthusiasts.

Yes you do! Also go to Spa while you're in the Eiffel neighborhood.

Since you are in Belgium, you should also go visit the Autoworld in Brussels and their National Military Museum next door.

I had my first lap at the Nurburgring during my ED last June. That day was raining pretty hard, and I only able to drive two laps due to track closure. Hope the weather will be better when the next time I go.

I just review my footage of my lap after reading this post. It def bring back my memories.

Thanks for sharing.
