Video of first back roads drive after break-in period

This isn't the most entertaining video, but I thought I'd share it anyways. The great thing about living in the South Bay (south of San Francisco) is we have a wealth of great driving roads around the outskirts of the busy Silicon Valley. I took it fairly easy as I've only been driving this car for a week and this was my first time on this road. The M3 might be at home on the race track, but it's meant for these back roads as well.



(You can view it in 720p after you hit play)

Video was shot with a GoPro HD Motorsports Hero mounted on my hood.

Thanks for sharing the video.

I highly recommend Hwy 1 from Marin City north to Tomales, it's worth the drive.

Or go east to New Priest Grade, google it.

Great vid. My favorite route is CA17 between Los Gatos and Watsonville. Always puts a big smile on my face.

Yea 1 is a nice stretch, but I never drive fast because I see cops all the time on that road.

That goes to Santa Cruz right? That's fun as well, but every time I go there's a lot of traffic.

My favorite cruising road has to be Skyline Blvd in the morning on a weekday. No cars and it's just a beautiful and smooth drive through some nice twisty roads.

Damn, we should drive together some time. The only road I've been to is highway 9 and I've been there more than 5 times already, getting bored.
