    Great driving as always Charles. 1:53 is incredibly quick for an E46, or heck, any BMW. Great job. Like I said, as far as I know this is a BMW record..?

    I think the Dixis E46 M3 ran a 54 back in the day, though that was an unlimited car, N/A power too. So yeah...

    No doubt it's fast, but it's not a BMW lap record.

    VJ Mirzayan ran a 1:51.53 in a BMW CCA CMod E36 in qualifying last year.

    I don't think that is correct. According to BMW Racing Stats that lap time was done on track config #1 CW. The best lap for #13 CW according to BMW CCA records is 1:55.857 by Bret Strom in April of this year.

    Here is the link to those records:

    Don't know if I would put a lot of faith in the accuracy of that site...

    Besides, Mickey Miller ran a 1:53.3 in that April event, in the race, though he DNF'd...

    BMW CCA, D-Modified. The car he usually runs is an E30 M3 with an NA S14. Modified does allow for slicks, though I have no idea what actually had on the car that day.

    I'm not saying that the driver in the OP doesn't deserve kudos for turning that time, I'm just saying it's not the all time record for a BMW in that configuration.
