Overtaking for Beginners - My (Crappy) M3 Video

I broke my D-SLR just in time for our club's annual 2 days trip to the interior. Still, trying to make myself useful, and to provide a bit different perspective, I jimmy-rigged a cell phone to my front windshield and shot ~5 hours of driving footage.

The sensor sucks and I know nothing about video production, but here's my first crack at it.

[u2b]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/u2b]

Car is a bone-stock '08 E90 M3 6MT.

BTW done the same trip the year before with an E90 335i (and then my E46 330i ZHP 3 times before that), and I will say without doubt that the price differences between the 335i and the M3 to be WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I dare say the V8 has more pick-up when you pull out to pass, if you remember to downshift before the move. Sounds better to boot. And, when the going gets twisty, there's no comparison as to the agility between the 2 cars.

Around town it's hard to make the case, but on trips like these, I'm glad I made the switch when I was able to!

Nice video and it sure looks like you had fun!

The roads remind me a bit of the Eastern Sierra (Mono Lake, Bishop, Mammoth) in California.

Great now I'm going to have to go on a road trip and it's all your fault!

Passing on a narrow two-lane highway is always a little tricky, especially when the road has elevation changes and curves. You also have to properly gauge the closing speed of the car in the other lane. (even if they appear far away)
The best is yet to come...
