Default My M3 made it across the country and this is what it saw...

I recently moved from Nashville, TN all the way to Reno/Lake Tahoe area after I graduated from school. I figured it would be a great idea to drive my car across the country after many forum members suggested that I drive and experience the country from my drivers seat. I am not a stranger to long drives but this one takes the cake as the longest.

I had the car checked out before I left and a few things were done and she was ready to go.

Here is what I was able to snap from the drivers seat...

First night down. Went from Nashville to the middle of Kansas.

My dog Bandit was also really tired...

Much needed...

Went to Fort Collins, CO for lunch and stopped by the New Belgium Brewery. Fantastic set up...Had some wonderful beer there as well. Ranger IPA, off tap in the brewery, FTW

Saw this...

My tires wore more on one side because they all shifted around in the trunk around a turn. Killed my MPG too...
