Wow!

So would that place it in the top 20 lap times? That is pretty amazing. I'll stick with my stock M2 no mods. Plenty fast for me! https://nurburgringlaptimes.com/lap-times-top-100/

It's definitely the best for both if faster traffic uses the flasher in time so
other drivers are informed that fast traffic is coming close.
The horn makes sense in tight situations - like most of them are on the Nordschleife
just to make sure that the other car knows that I am next to him.

And yes. The M2 is definitely more than a nice little baby M
And no - my M3 GT4 is not far sale
Any guess what time you would have run with stock tire/ rim setup?

very hard to say. stock tires are very difficult on the track in terms of temperatures and pressure.
it's nearly impossible to keep them in the window where they should be.
but the delta is definitely 5-7seconds

Full Lap vs. Bridge To Gantry

This 7:22.6 is an impressive Bridge to Gantry time, but not a full lap of the Nordschleife. It does not compare to the 7:27.88 M4 GTS lap, nor the 7:58 stock M2 lap in BMW's advertising as it is a shorter distance than a full lap. Bridge to Gantry is 19.1 km and the full lap is 20.832 km or approximately an additional mile. The link above times are for full laps.

If i'd been a passenger in this M2, I'd shit my pants.
Talented driver and the right tool for the job.

That M2 is a true monster. Driving skills are amazing and the high beam and horn were used in true BMW fashion. Impressed.

Question

Wow. Can't wait to get my manual M2 that's on order!

BUT... how is this possible? 7.22 with traffic and a manual?

The mile is on the straight at 250kp/h+ or 150MPH+ Adds 24 seconds at most.

Nice! Love watching vids of people with gigantic balls rip it up!

Using the horn made me chuckle, I was waiting for him to stick his middle finger up

That. Car. Is. On. RAILS.

The way it would just stick and rotate in the corners has me so impressed... I wish I had not only that level of car control, but a car that could do that. My modified Cooper S (2005, before the obesity epidemic) can to an extent, but not really rotate on throttle because, well, yeah it's FWD

Mad props to the driver and tuners.

So for touristenfahrten is there only one side you can overtake on? I'm interested because I'm probably gonna try to do ED.
