770 kms of trip (Swiss Alps) - BMW's / EVO / Aston

Hi everybody,

I just want to share with you few photos of a trip we did last week with my family and my friends. We did 770 kms through swiss Alps. We slept in St-Moritz (1st night) and in Lugano (2nd night). It was really a great trip ! Regarding sporty driving I especially enjoyed my M3 on the Susten Pass and on the Grimsel Pass due to few traffic. The drivetrain is amazing and the V8 gives the feeling that every climbed roads are inexistent for the M3. We had a lot of fun
It was the longest trip I did with my M3 and I find it very comfortable (seats are just perfect !). Average fuel consumption was not bad (12.8 liters per 100kms). This car is a great mix of luxury & sport which is enjoyable during trip like this. It delivers less sensations than my previous Z4M Coupe but I find the car more appropriate to my driving preferences. To conclude I like a lot the versatility and the refined mechanic of the M3.

List of cars :

- Mitsubishi EVO VI Tommi Makinen Limited Edition (friend)
- Aston Martin V8 Vantage (friend)
- BMW M3 Convertible DCT (dad)
- BMW M3 Coupe ZCP 6MT (mine)
- BMW Z4M Coupe (friend)
- BMW 645Ci Convertible Individual (brother)
- BMW 320d xDrive (friend)


Furka pass:


Nice bathroom in our hotel (St-Moritz):


It snowed during the night:

Arrival in Lugano, the second day:


Nice Lambo


Nice view of Lugano:

I have to say that I didn't take enough photos of this awesome trip :-(

Thx for your comments

@ NycM3E93: My camera is a Canon 40D and the lens is the 17-85IS. I edit my photos with Photoshop Elements and several of them are HDR (Photomatix Light).

The USA could look so much better. It looks like we shopped at "The Country Depot" to build the US compared to Switzerland. The only thing the bathroom photo has in common with a US hotel bathroom is the camera. But here the camera is hidden on the other side of the mirror.
