Got to blow off some steam and get alot of crap I've been dealing with out of my head.. Drove for about 45 mintues up Angeles Crest Highway in SoCal. For those of you who don't know what it is, its a road people drive on for the sake of driving-- never to actually get anywhere. Here was todays route!



You can see the world up there, some of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen-- especially during a beautiful sunset.

Got a couple shots of my car up there.. using tricky angles to hide the sh*tty paint!

I have lots of curvy roads in VA, but I'm trapped in the cage of congestion and urban sprawl that is Northern VA. I have to drive for an hour in heavy stop and go traffic or on a 6 lane freeway to get to anything actually fun to drive.

I don't have a great memory of it, we were on a 4 day Mediterranean cruise and I think we just spent an afternoon poking around the city. Its surprisingly urban. I also remember the cab drivers considered speed limits as rough guidelines.

I like the 'vert, a small drop and taking off that M badge would help out a lot.

Is that the UUC RSC36? Is it really drone free?

If I use too much throttle below 2k rpms my entire cabin is filled with something that sounds like a skrillex song frozen on the drop. Sh1t's ridiculous. I sort of want to swap it out, but then again I haven't seen any other person with a B&B tri-flow on an E36, and it does sound like angel porn under full throttle.

The only other one that really gets me going is the eisenmann race. God that exhaust sounds insane. Then again, not popping my ear drums out when I'm lugging around in traffic might be nice too...

No drone to speak of, however if you don't like loud gunshot popping then it might not appeal to you.
