Makes Me Want To Quit My Office Job!

My wife and I attended the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience on 10/23/11 in Marietta, Georgia. We were given the opportunity to drive 17 laps at top speed and compare the 2011 BMW X3 35i with the 2011 Mercedez-Benz GLK350 and the 2011 Lexus RX350. Believe me, there's no comparison!
This video was taken at the end when their professional instructors showed us how it's really done. Take a look at 00:21, you can see the right front tire come off the ground on the X3 in front of us. But these things won't roll over, even when you try to make them:

That's what the sales lady told me too. I was like ...NO, I will not do that around the corner without buying it first. Also, I would not to hurt myself or others if I wasn't on a course or practicing first on the handling characteristics. I'm sure someone will post a flipped x3 by the end of the thread.

On a side note, I liked the way it handled semi-aggressively. Now I can believe her I could have done more!

Yeah, the girl sitting in the back was a pretty blond from Russia or the Ukraine. It's the only thing I heard her say the whole day.
Perfect timing!
