Couple dirt road pics.

Desperate for track time. Visited Google Earf to see if I was missing a road in the area (flat Michigan farm country) that has.. turns.

Spotted one ~30 mls north of me. Looked legit. Looked paved. Off I went.

Paved roads end en route. Channeling my inner Magellan whilst reminding myself that the M3 is “not an exotic” I forge ahead. Went from slightly disoriented to lost’er than hell. Finally find the twisty road, which is also not actually paved.

Hop out to take a couple of photos and then mud my way back home.

Worn RS3s are surprisingly good in the dirt and gravel. And you're not a real M3 driver until you've heard the sweet sounds of gravel "pinging" off of your Akrapovic.

I'm thinking about organizing a meet at the site of these pictures. Let me know if you're interested.

E36 is a solid rally car! E9X would be a blast. I'd love an E9X junker.

23k miles on mine in less than 2 years. Have enjoyed every minute, even when lost on dirt roads in the middle of nowhere.
