M3, 545i, Z4 3.0, 330ci convert, X5 4.4, 325i SMG - Amazing pics of Drive Day

Hi there everyone. Organized a BMW Drive Day with our one and only BMW dealership in Adelaide !

1st pic - Cars all ready to roll out.

2nd pic - M3 driven by the boss. He let me drive soon after. WOW, that car is a mean machine. I'm not use to the SMG gear shift as I drive a 330i individual with steptronic !

The convoy

We drove a convoy of 7 amazing cars from the city of Adelaide to the coast of Goolwa. We rented an airstip and drove so fast that we scared ourselves silly !!!

The dreaded runway !! We had to drive weaving thro. a host of cones. It was scary by the time we reached the end of the runway. Some of us were travelling at speeds of 180 kph at the end !

745il was amazing ! Despite being such a large car, it was so darn stable and it could slice thro. the cones with such ease.

M3 was the star. Very bumpy and harsh ride though.

Thanks !! The pictures were taken with the latest digital Nikons.

My brother used a 6.1 Megapixel D70 digital SLR.

I used an 8 Megapixel Coolpic 8700 digital.

Cool pictures!

The facelift 330Ci looks nice, and the action shots are great.
