What a beautiful, rugged place! Thanks for posting the pics. Looks like a very memorable trip. And good idea to caravan with other M-cars--it looks so desolate there that if you happened to have car trouble, it could be quite some time before you find help.

Other thoughts:

I love the pics of the dirty orange 1M with black wheels. It looks like a bulldog puppy that's been having fun playing in the dirt.

How appropriate that Clarkson's vacation home features a giant phallus-shaped lighthouse, given that many feel he himself is one.

I obviously don't know you, but if that's you in the picture mounting the cannon and scanning the horizon, I'd make that your Facebook homepage picture.

Thanks! Isle of Man isn't too isolated, there is a BMW dealership there and BMW emergency service does have coverage in the island, so we were safe.

Gordon Ramsay did say that Clarkson's house was penis-shaped on the f-word .

That's not me on the cannon, but I shall convey the message .

Hope you enjoyed the vid too.

So.... 1 M3 + 6 1M's, did it make your nickname on the 2-way phone/radio mama-goose? And the others gosling 1-6?

The pic with the M3 in front and all 6 behind that made me think of that.

Nice trip!

Incredible photos! The visual appeal of Isle of Man coupled with those amazing driving roads is tough to beat.

Thanks! There is no other place in the world like it, for the very fact that the extra-urban roads have no speed limits. Imagine going flat out on your favourite mountain pass whilst being able to overtake police.
