Road Trip Through Beautiful BC Feat. My New Toy :)

Sold the white car (JDM 1991 Toyota Soarer) in my sig and got myself a new toy to play with on the track!

2005 Silver Gray M3 on black Napa with SMG transmission.

Bit of a story bringing it home as I had to drive it over the Coquihalla highway through a ton of snow! Car handled beautifully, but enough talking, here's my journey in a series of pictures.


First sight of the car


Gonna need these...


The new Port Mann bridge! Thankfully didn't get hit by falling ice lol


Leaving Hope and into the fog and mountains!


Seemed alright


Getting worse...


And FOG!


Up to the summit we go!


And some pics at the Summit rest stop. Phewf!


Mmmm... LED tails


Quick Instagram pic haha


We thought the worst was over but just past Merrit on HWY97 we encountered THICK fog. Yuck!


Got it home safe and sound for her first wash!


Clean!


Stupid chrome winter wheels lol


Mint black Napa interior with brushed aluminum trim


Should've put these mats in before the trip :P

Sorry they're all iPhone pics! And don't mind the ugly winter Dub wheels lol... I've got these ready to be put on in the Spring time!


OEM 19's


Clean engine bay!

Plans for the summer are to throw the 19's on, of course, and get some subtle exterior mods (Iconz 1-piece CF race lip, CF CSL diffuser, painted reflectors and some angel eyes).

Ahh that was my second guess. Those roads look just like the ones in CO. Nice roads for cars like ours!
