Arrived Safe...

Before anything, id like to thank everyone for all the advices before doing this trip.I took your advice to take I-40 route all the way to LA.it took me 4 days from NJ to SF...no problem at all except for some heavy rains in Arkansas and foggy condition in the early morning in Albuquerque, that was scary, i was doing 20 mph that time..my car is only a 330 but i had a blast..the sports seat was very helpful and the NAV performed well..the Sirius and my IPod kept me entertained on those middle of nowhere..what a difference when i got to 7K on the odo, the car felt more smooth...it was a great experience! Beemers are truly the ultimate driving machine...again thanks to all....

LOL why is your car only a 330?

A 330 is nothing to sneeze at.

If the 330 is a piece of $&#@ then what is the 325? Haha. Did you make that trip by yourself or had a co-pilot?

dude, in Canada and other parts of the world the 330 is like the 4th highest model (318, 323, 325, 328, etc.) so you should be happy that you have a car that was top-of-the-line (at the time) when you bought it :-)

Nice to hear you had a great trip...........sounds like fun!

Glad too read you enjoyed your trip! I did the same trip leaving from CA to NJ leaving on December 19 (did it in 5 days). I started my trip back on January 2 and I just got back last night (did it in 3 days). The car ran flawlessly

Glad to hear you had a nice safe drive.

But you know you can't make a 4 day cross country drive without seeing this.
