    2200 miles @ 25mpg + some pics

    I just drove 2200 miles in less than three days the longest stretch was Thursday I drove from Laredo, Tx to Scottsdale, Az. Man am I burnt out.

    here are a few pictures I took:







    That's while I waited for A&J to open. I got a hose and horn for 10 bucks. They are great!

    56,57,58k









    Sunset in New Mexico



    Got 27mpg on one tank the computer was actually accurate.



    Scottsdale at 11:30 Man was I tired! 1000+ miles in 19 hours (I waited an hour at A&Js and about an hour killed getting gas/bathrooms/food)



    I got into L.A. at noon and went and got the smog and passed so 19# injectors & MarkD's chip don't hurt emissions! (whew) I went to the DMV, so it's registered!
    I am still burnt.

        Got pictures??? video???

        lol

        Worst part is sitting in the virtually same position. The sports seats are comfortable and have a large range of adjustments but it gets hard on the back & neck. Thank god for the cruise. my knee does not hurt like it did when it was broken.

        Seriously Jordan I can't imagine doing much more than the 19 I did I was very tired. I was thinking about Lindburgh that is insane 32 hours in a seat pissing in bottles, damn.

          Those M3 springs are really starting to sag, what shocks are you running?

          Glad you can tollerate long trips because I sure as hell can't :) I get so bored driving home and its less than 3 hours.

            I'm planning on doing about 3k this summer... in the E30.
            The BMW 318 is back. With a vengeance.

              No they are not the car is FULLY and I mean fully loaded. The back seat bottom is in the trunk and the back seat area has 200 plus pounds of stuff plus the top storage area has a bunch of clothes, I have my tools in teh trunk all in all I would say there is about 400 pounds of extra weight on the back tires. I'll post a picture later with nothing in it.

              I have Bilstein tourings btw.

                    and I bet you have functioning cruise control and you used it.

                    My car was gutted of such devices long ago. By the end of my trip I was pressing the accellerator with my left foot because it was borderline make you cry paintful to do it with my right leg.

                      Did you have a co-pilot? Me and my buddy Dan drove 42 straight hours. That's a lot of coffee, crappy food, and one-hitters.

                              Right after you came out of the closet after whatshervirginface broke up with you.
