First bmw road trip (420miles)

I decided im going to keep her for time being we'll see what happens. Anyways it was amazing fun went up to lynchburg VA had some nice up/down and curvy roads definitely good fun. Also was nice little vacation from virginia beach for 2 days.

Anyone else got summer road trip planned with their bmw?

Im glad you decided to keep the car. You were scaring me with this Kia Rio replacement talk. The 330i is a great car, and the 06 e90's seem to be pretty reliable overall. Enjoy it in good health!

Im waiting on my 335is to come in, but I definitely have some trips up and down the coast of California planned! San Diego also has some beautiful back roads and canyon passes, I can't wait to test this beast out on them.

Ya I cant leave you know what I mean, Bmw is where my heart is. Their forums are terrible to, Enthusiast pshh.

Ya that 335 will be a blast im sure, I dont take mine on alot of road trips just cause I dont want to break down in middle of nowhere but this time im like f it, lets go wife lol. It was worth it.

Another reason holding on to her is I got most of tools to work on her now like INPA etc so why get rid of car I can actually maintain pretty easy.

06' BMW 330i  [0.00]
Blasted from Central Fla to Atlanta......arrived quickly and still felt fresh after a 6 hour drive, ended up going out on the town til the wee hours of the morn.

Two years of driving this car and it still puts a smile on my face. Can't wait until I get a larger e60 or a M-series.

Just drove it 1000 miles from Texas to South Carolina and back. Great drive, no complaints. Had a little fun on the way with some other cars too. Last time I did the drive I took the S2K, this time was obviously more comfortable and quiet

Almost done with a 2400-mile trek from CLT to LAX (new job). Resting in Vegas for the weekend before wrapping up on Monday.

23k on the clock and not a drop of oil consumed.

No problems, no stress, only hours and hours of boredom west of Amarillo....
