AquilaBMW’s Cross Country Tour

We then walked on to the apron where all the car were parked and Matt took us to an F10 M5. He said it was only right that us M5 owners should go on track in an M5. Ladies and Gentlemen…… the next 10 or so minutes of my life were one of the most memorable, kid in a candy store smile inducing, heart pumping minutes ever!

The BMW Performance Driving Center in Spartenburg, South Carolina is the home for some of the most fun driving you can have. Not only do they have a state of the art facility, but they also have cars that are prepped and ready for you to drive. One member decided to drop by on his cross country road trip. Not knowing what he would find given how he was snubbed on the phone when he called BMW’s corporate offices, he was taking a risk. He was sure glad he did.

After chatting it up with reception people, he greeted by some friendly faces and one of the best instructors … Matt Mullins. Mike Mullins a fellow E39 M5 aficionado took the time to talk and trade stories with a grateful member before giving him a tour of the facility and ultimately taking him around the track for a sight seeing lap of one of the best playgrounds in the country. The car of choice was a brand new M5.
