My Trip from Calgary to Vancouver

It was a fun trip, lovedddddddddddd driving my car! I just had a problem with oil that it needed and it was Canada day and everywhere was close. Rather than that, it was a blast. Pics are attached below :

^ LOL. How much were you revving the M3? Looks like the sound of the S65B40 might just be a mating call for brown bears!

Yeah I agree. I made it in 9 - 9.5 hours and on the highway, I was getting 9.9. I was impressed!

Looks and sounds like a nice trip. I did Edmonton to Kelowna May long weekend. I would love to do the trip to Vancouver, but it is so hard to control one's speed when driving these cars and the speed limits in BC are so low. Coupled with that, their penalties for speeding are so excessively punitive, it is retarded.

You just need a Radar Detector. 99% of the cops there are using KA band. At the same time, I would just follow a fast driver and make sure to follow the speed limit when you enter any city/town. It is a different story in Vancouver. They were doing construction on highway 1 there but absolutely no one cares about the speed limit (80KM/hrs), everyone drives around 110 - 120 and no cops are around! It was totally different from AB that we usually go 10km over the speed limit.

Your car looks great!

I did the opposite direction last month. Great scenary. Unfortunately, I had to rent a car because I live in Ontario. I do not have an M3, but I still could not wait to get back into my car!

You definitely made the right choice. Late last year I drove from Vancouver to Kelowna in a rented 300C, and all I could think of was how much fun I would have had making the trip in my M3. BC and the M3 were made for each other!
