I think the Top Gear vote was for the entire Davos-Stelvio route, not just the switchback part of the pass. The segment they did was far longer than just the steep part, and there were spots where they ran the cars out for a while.

Also: since I'm thinking of taking my new 328i out on some drives around here in Southern CA, where is this road in San Diego County that's good? Heck, what ARE some good drives around here?
