Love Vancouver Island!! Used to go out to Tofino, Port Alberni, Nanaimo all the time... love those drives... especially the crest at Kennedy Lake on the Pacific Rim Hwy heading toward the West Coast of the island. Epic trip and photos... pristine beauty of Canada's West Coast in full display!

Ha! I was thinking, "What's wrong with his exhaust?"

Great trip, great report. Thanks!

Great ED thread !!! ....


Oh wait... it's half way across the other side of the world...


Great Weekend trip report with two of the best machines in the world!

I see what you guys did, Since you couldn't come to an ED
you made the ED experience come to you !!

Awesome photos and thanks for sharing !

One thing: i wish you didn't accelerate the videos... i wanted to listen to the nice music your car was making ... accelerating the video just killed the whole experience...

Great post/videos/info. I would love to do a drive like that. Shame that I don't live there... can you rent E9x M3s in Canada?

Absolutely awesome pics and vids. You really captured the scenery and epic driving roads perfectly. I saw your M3 on the ferry to nanaimo last summer.

I've got a JZB e90 M3. I'm starting to get e92 envy. Alas, the e92 doesn't work well as a daily commuter with a child seat in the back.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

Re: Sped-up videos, I am absolutely rubbish at video editing and I can never decide what segment to cut out and what to leave in, and also I think people might prefer to see the route in its entirety, but I wager people cannot suffer through 1hr+ of video. I do take care to not go overboard with the fast-forwarding so the engine note is kind-of preserved. Still, the shorter runs like Highlands, Sooke Loop and Port Alice Highway are not sped up at all so give those a try?

Re: Lansdowne, car is there every weekday still, but now I park on the other side of the mall because I walk back and forth to and from our head office across the street.

@ mofbb: I remember your car! Franklin was trying to get into your car that night because they looked so similar, hahaha. There were 6x E92 M3s parked on that side of the lot that night....

Re: Weather, for late October in the Pacific Northwest it actually wasn't that bad. Not much actual rain fell during the drives as you can see, and we've usually been lucky at the planned photo stops. I will agree that cloudy skies made for unspectacular pictures, but I do this trip yearly (usually split into 2 weekends though) so hopefully better luck next year.

Thanks again for looking and hopefully you guys enjoyed the re-cap as much as we enjoyed the drive!

Thanks for posting this trip - and awesome is not even an adequete description for this trip. That is a ton of driving in a few days, even in M3s.

I have been to most of the places you went, and I was in Sooke and the Qualicum area just a month ago. I did not know that the road from Port Renfrew to Cowichan was paved, that makes a great circle drive now.

I live in Kelowna, so don't get over to the Island that much, but every time that I do, I like it over there. Maybe retire there later.....
