I'd pay money for that. I'd do it in the wee hours and BLAST those f-ckin roads.

Here's a 1 minute clip of my driving style (turned Waze off and my camera around for y'all). Actually it's not; I don't usually pass with too much of a Delta. Or.... do I.... no. No, I'm sure I don't. I'm sure I never would.

Only when I listen to Green Day.

Man, does that GoPro really mask the speed. Looked like you weren't going above 90, even though I know this isn't the case. Airbox sounds great!

Just did about the same trip from TN to NOLA, and it was nothing but a fun trip.
Just drive the car man!

Haha, that was actually just my iPhone propped in my little air-vent clip.

And: I know! It didn't look fast at all. Even knowing the other cars were going 70-80, it didn't feel like the differential that 125/130 would make when I watched it. And to the M3's credit, 150 feels about as perfectly controlled as 60 in most cars. I drove my dear friend's 2006 Kia a couple months ago on the freeway, his DAILY driver, and I kid you not: I didn't feel safe going more than 72mph. It shook and dog-legged and rattled... it just sucked.


And again, I rarely pass with that kind of differential. 90% of my driving is a relaxed "I'll set my own speed limit, thank you very much", of driving 22-29 over, which is only 12-20mph faster than what most people cruise at in rural Michigan.

Only in the early mornings or wee hours of the night (or wide open stretches) do I give the S54 as much freedom as she wants. I was just in a certain mood and thought of you guys on Sunday when I shot that video.

It was great to see someone actually show controversial craziness. Iím grandpa 98% of the time until I need to let grandpa party like a young one. LOL

Drive it!
I've gone from LA to SF twice this year. Two months ago I also went from LA to Brookings Oregon. 1,500 miles round trip. No problems at all
