A 2000 mile roadtrip in my BMW X3 M40i

After driving my friend’s M3 Competition I am sold over it and may be it will be in my garage in the future.

2000 Mile Road Trip – Tail of the Dragon

Long Weekend Drive happened just after the long weekend here in US

Few of us BHPians from the Team-bhp Rust belt group had planned a 2 day overnighter trip to the beautiful Great Smokey Mountains area. We have been planning this from quite sometime and finally it materialized and turned out to be one of the amazing trip for me here in US.

White Wolf performed flawlessly during this 1900 mile (3000 kms) drive and it never let me down at any given point of time. I almost tested its limits in straight lines and curves and it behaved as it is supposed to be and I am glad I bought this car. However, after driving my friend’s M3 Competition I am sold over it and may be it will be in my garage in the future.

Main agenda of this trip was to drive the tail of the dragon (318 curves in 11 miles), known for its twisty roads and well known in the sports car and motorcycles world, here in US.
