Not to mention how easy +100mph racks up the miles like no body's business. 140 really tacks'm on.

Used to do nightly runs last summer, I would go through some of my local routes and try to time myself while balancing speed and staying within the law.
It's fun, a great stress reliever, and with no traffic, can stretch the car's legs a little bit.

Of course! Driving around is fun, even if I have where to go. Sometimes I just hop in the car, throw on my favorite tuns, and just drive around.

I live in California so we have beautiful scenery along the coast. Driving down the beach specifically Huntington Beach down PCH. I usually do that on my Sunday cruises.

OP you are right. I go out not just at night but whenever I want to feel a good pull. It never gets old, in fact if you mod your car... You will always be on the lookout on whats next on your mod list, no matter how small.

Oh yeah, absolutely! Night, day doesn't matter...

during the day though, I am usually just stuck here in the office dreaming on how I could get out of here sooner so I could go for a drive at night!

No other car had this effect on me. There is something magical about driving a BMW!

GOod for you!! Enjoy your car.

Man I do it just about every night. I bought the car to drive and not sit in the garage. Sucks now though cause it's in the garage on jack stands awaiting it's new RB turbos. I really hate this forum cause it gave me a mod bug I just can't get rid of. Thanks you all. Lol
