Thumbs up Drift with e89

Hello this is my first post in this forum.
I drive a 2012 model z4 2.0sdrive and i did custom exhaust system in my country i will post the sound later if anyone interested.
I search in the forum and in the youtube but i couldn't find any drift video with e89 z4. Are there any drifter here or am i the only one? We can share our experiences

Turkish guy craving for drift merhaba ..

Even though our cars dont have a very very aggressive character, still it is quite exciting to skit with traction off on rainy days ..

I just had mine out on the skid pad and had a blast. Was able to hold it and make 3-4 laps sideways. The car is surprisingly easy to control slalom drifting. Everyone needs some skid pad time! Thinking about doing some events soon.

Thanks for advises my tires are the original ones right now potenza i mean. I usually drift in the roads which is old asphalt roads it is easy to drift Also i will change my tires for summer. And also it is easy and fun to drift in the parking garages. The mod i use is of course manuel mod and i push the dtc button like 5seconds and i turn off every system.

One word of advise. Don't ever drive with bald tires it might not be wise.

A good friend of mine did almost 2 years ago now and paid for with his life. He was only 29, went for a quick spin to see his G/F after a track meet and lost control (his rear gave out while overtaking on a wet road) he ended up around a tree. The final analysis was he drove with bald tires.
