Inspired by the use of that other guys freeway commute publish, I decided to
put together mine. Once more in December I had some time off to burn
so I decided I might take a commute to Maryland to look some family, and
NYC to look the WTC memorial. I planned it spherical a Freeway Atlanta
observe fit to break up the ability just a bit.
I left my house so much later then I anticipated and got to RA
spherical 2am. Operating on about 4 hours of sleep I went outdoor
and scraped the frost off my automobile and headed to the observe. I
was once as soon as unsure how re71’s would art work in the ones temperatures alternatively they
weren’t terrible. It did warmth up just a bit shortly throughout the day.
First session out my brake pad warning delicate were given right here on for the
rears and I had no variety alternatively to run whole dsc off to save lots of a number of them
for the rest of the commute, or no less than until I made it to a
dealer. Entire dsc off was once as soon as actually truly nice and not as scary
as some make it seem. I matched my non-public very best laptime taking
it relatively easy. It rained all day sunday alternatively I ran anyway
regardless of the cold and the rain.
After 2 wet sessions I decided that was once as soon as enough for me and we
headed out to the Potency Center for and to look if
the remainder cool was once as soon as going on. I went spherical once more and spotted a couple
GTS’s and a few M2’s taking a look forward to provide, alternatively no longer anything else on
observe. Since no longer anything else was once as soon as going on, we left after a couple
photos and got once more on the freeway. I decided to make a save you in
Charlotte to take a look at Hendrick Motorsports and the race observe.
The tours of Hendrick were closed on Sundays and the downpour
stored us from getting any cool pics. Bummer.
We persevered onto Maryland where we’ve been staying with my aunt
and uncle. I took that time to modify my pads once more to stock and
take a look at the car over. We stayed a couple days in MD and spotted some
out of date friends and family, checked out my early lifestyles house and had
some crabs(in the end).
We got on the freeway to NYC early throughout the morning and made it
spherical lunch time. We got checked into the lodge and took the
automobile to BMW of The big apple to get the brakes modified. That place
was once as soon as insane, I’ve not at all noticed a dealer like that previous than. They
took me correct in and promised not to wash the car. Matthew
Bechard was once as soon as the SA and he took truly superb care of me. We
walked around the showroom and checked out some cool stuff they
had, then went to get some foods. They known as me the next
morning to say it was once as soon as all performed and I might simply move away it there for
the duration of my commute so I didn’t will have to pay for parking
Having a look to get spherical on a subway
was once as soon as probably the most worrying part of the commute. I was a n00b.
We ended up the entire means in Brooklyn from Central Park while
in quest of to get to the World Business Center. Lucky for me my boss
merely happened to be in Brooklyn correct above us at the Barclays
Center so he got us on the correct train once more. 1000 miles from
area and I run into him lol. NYC was once as soon as numerous amusing. I favored the
memorial and I may extraordinarily counsel checking it out for those who
can. We spent over 3 hours walking spherical inside. We moreover did
the all usual touristy stuff spherical Christmas time that my gf
spotted in each romantic movie ever, alternatively I had her at a race observe
for 2 days so I suppose this is give and take.
We picked up the car and headed out of the town to BMW NA in NJ
to look if the remainder cool was once as soon as hiding. We came upon some GTS’s and
some pre production/camouflaged G30 hybrids, and a 2 assortment
full of life tourer hybrid. Not sure why that was once as soon as over proper right here but it
was once as soon as cool to look. I asked for a tour alternatively they discussed no so we
We got on the freeway once more to MD to spend 1 additional evening time and get able
for a 13 hour energy once more to FL. I stopped up doing it immediately
right through the evening time wired on redbull and disco sugar . Merely kidding regarding the
disco sugar. I made it area spherical 6am and then proceeded to
transfer out for like 12 hours.
In general we put spherical 2700-2800 miles on the automobile in a 9 day
period and I wouldn’t have wanted any other automobile for the method.
It held all our bags, a jack, tools, parts, and the remainder
else we threw at it. It was once as soon as relaxed on the highway, it’s
fantastic on the observe, and it not at all broke my once more sitting for
long periods of time. Fuel mileage wasn’t too bad each. I
assume we’ve been averaging mid 20’s completely loaded down.
Listed here are my cell phone pics. They aren’t the best and I’m no
professional, alternatively you get the speculation. Revel in!
Moreover that is some clips from RA.
