Today was the day when I finally took my car on what I would call a "spirited drive" to Big Sur on the PCH. I took a close girlfriend of mine on my journey. Our destination was http://ventanainn.com
for a long leisurely lunch and then some shopping in Carmel. Just got back home and thought I would share some of my thoughts about my experience with my new baby.
First, I realize a lot of people like the V8 sound and power. However, for a 6 cylinder, the 640i is an amazing car. It had plenty of power and in Sport + mode the car handled as well as advertised. Luckily my friend loves to drive fast and never even flinched as I was navigating through the twists and turns on PCH as you leave Carmel and head into Big Sur. For whatever it's worth I'll leave the V8s to those who want to put more money into there gas tanks and I'll take the savings for more lunches to destinations like the one I went to today.
