I was up in San Luis Obispo for a work conference. I was heading home Friday afternoon - enjoying my drive down the 101 at about 2pm. It was really pretty.<p>I came upon a group of about 10 M3s! All of them looked really fixed up. Exhausts, lowered, you name it. CSL trunks....they looked nice. I didn't know it at the time, but I later learned that Bimmerfest is this weekend in Santa Barbara, so they were probably going there.<p>I came up along side them and was slightly passing them and almost every one of them did the double take of my R and quite a few shot me some thumbs up.<p>One of them started following me, wanting to "see what I had". Kill stories aren't allowed here....so I'll leave the details out. Suffice it to say, nothing reckless occured, and no one died...<p>the guy had a passenger and when all was done, he yelled "that thing is FAST" and gave me a big thumbs up and a big smile. He tried to say something about how his trunk was full of stuff....I guess he wanted to let me know his car was weighed down..... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>He then proceeded to whip out his video camera and take video of my car as they cruised along. <p>It was kind of cool to cruise up to some of the NICEST M3s I have ever seen - get thumbs up from them, then run one - then get told "your car is really fast" then have them take video of my car. <p><br>Made my day. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (flybynight)

I agree...maybe head down to Portland, have a few beers and lunch at a brewhouse then snake back on some back roads.

Re: S60R gets THUMBS UP from M3s heading to Bimmefest (23109VC)

Hey Sean, Don gave me a ride in the Blue Car and sold me on the chip. Your car has got to be really fast with your set up. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I think I know the out come the minute you said, Kill stories aren't allowed here" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> , but you can IM me if I'm wrong.

Re: S60R gets THUMBS UP from M3s heading to Bimmefest (23109VC)

Wow! 10 M3's and one video'd you! Cool stuff man!<p>It would be very cool to have a chase car video tape and photograph your R in motion on the highway.<p>My thumps up experience with an M3 last week went like this: I was driving south on the DVP (Don Valley Parkway, Toronto) going downtown to work when I came up on an M3. We enjoyed a few Km's of fun and safe driving (I was following him). At one point when the road opened up he put it down but I did not give chase since I'm still babying my R for the break-in period, it was so tempting though, but I had the will-power to ease up and keep the RPM's below 4500 (it was a classic case of mind vs. lead foot). I used some savy traffic-intelligence to manouver my way back beside him and we both smiled, then he gave me the thumbs-up and we parted ways. We shall meet again!<p>Not all M3 drivers are bad!<p>LTA
