    Why can't I choose the BMW in career mode?

    No idea there, I'm using it in career right now. My favorite car.

    Try starting a new career?

    Does anyone know, why the BMW is dated 2017? Its first year in BPGT was in 2016 and it got its an EVO-package in 2018.

    Many times they launch a car with the following year on the name.
    As far as I remember, the Audi R8 LMS non evo version competed in 2015, but was called the Audi R8 LMS 2016.

    I'm not sure, but if I had to guess that is the reason.

    Model years for production cars being one year ahead of the production year is an American thing. The R8 LMS was homologated in 2015, went on sale in 2015, raced in 2015 - it is a 2015 car.

    If you buy an Audi Street car, wich is produced after factory holidays in summer 2018, it is called model 2019.

    But it is called the Audi R8 LMS 2016.
    What's your point?

    Does someone have a tip on how to drive/setup the BWM for silverstone?
    I just can't get reliable in the 2:00 / 2:01 mark. It's bouncy and (for me at least) very understeary. I have tried tweaking a bit in the setup, it does help a bit, but not enough.
    I have a feeling I am just driving it wrong or something. I like driving the BMW, it's a bit of an underdog right now and everybody loves a underdog ;)
    I can make a video of my driving if it is helpfull.

    So i've finally gotten some quality time with the m6 and i'm as confused as i have ever been (in Simracing).

    The m6 has decent power and torque, so it's only natural to be fast on the straight. But what happened to it's acceleration? It's a turd on corner exit, no matter how much you preload that twin turbo.
    Well, that's surely to balance it's supreme handling characteristics you'd say? Nope. It understeers on corner entry (tbh not as bad as it could be), has a twitchy rear end mid corner and isn't as planted as it should be on corner exit (judging by it's lackluster acceleration and massive wheelbase).
    Did i mention that it has arguably the worst brakes of all gt3's? Not much point in having insane straight line speed if you have to work that brake pedal miles before everyone else, is there?

    I get that the car was never that competitive in real life to begin with, but it's an utter enigma in this game.

    not easy to work with this car, but to be honest, it hever has been competitive (except for Spa) in real life too...
    i place reality over equal cars, so i'm fine with it.
    my biggest problem with BMW is that despite it's a big battleship, it feels so light and not planted at all, very slidy and unstable on curbs.
    harder to handle this for me that the understeer.
    amongst the older cars (like old Nissan, Bentley, McLaren) it is relative competitive, but the newer cars outperform it, that's true
    try the 650s if you want the challenge ;)

    i get that. I've tried all the cars. Spend the most time with the Lexus, followed by the Audi and Porsche.

    What i do not get is how the physics work with the m6's acceleration and deceleration.

    Let's look at deceleration. It's basic dimensions are similar enough to the Lexus. Similar weight and balance. Same tire width, brake pad and disc size. The cars should essentially decelerate in a similar (if not equal) fashion from medium and low speed. But they don't. The Lexus seems to have a slightly higher overall brakepressure with the abs intervening earlier.

    Again, i get that the bmw is not supposed to be the most competitive car. But i don't think that it should be 1-2 sec slower across all tracks.

    I don't know how much help I will be as i'm no alien but the M6 is my go to car and at Silverstone with the base aggressive setup i'm consistent 2:01. I think my driving style suits it I like a bit of understeer in my cars. I have a light touch on my wheel and also i'm very smooth with with inputs I don't saw at the wheel, which I think this car likes as its big and heavy fast changes are a big no-no with it. I do agree the brakes are the worst of the bunch but I have learned to deal with it. I may be slower into the corner but usually I'm on the power sooner (slow in fast out) I find it can trail break fairly easily. I have not really noticed its slow acceleration I can usually keep up out of the corners. As for setup if I change anything usually I will add one click stiffer front springs and almost ride the bump stops and 1-3 clicks more slow bump and rebound again in the front. I haven't played around with much more.

    as a comparison if you put me in the lambo or porsche i do not like how twitchy they feel and it looks like i've never driven a car before when i'm off in the weeds somewhere every corner LOL

    Car choice doesn't matter if you're 2+ seconds off the pace and use default everything. The disadvantages only become apparent (and therefore can be fixed with setup partially) once you really try to squeeze in the last second or two. Until then - work on your driving.

    Is there any likelyhood of the BMW BOP changing anytime soon? It was so off the pace at Silverstone in the SRO race last weekend.
