Big Sur Drive

Hi Everyone, took the Z4 on a drive up the coast to Carmel and Big Sur was absolutely spectacular!

NikkiZ4,

You must have taken the Z thru Topanga Cyn or Las Virginez over to Malibu? How about Muholland Dr? That would be a blast.

Thank you for the tip We just had one of those point and shoot cameras. Planning on making the drive again next year and will definitely bring a better camera.

Hi toplessrydr,

One of the first drive I took was thru Topaga Cyn after buying the car. It happened to be holiday weekend so there were many cars on that road , but have since driven it many times because it's such a fun drive.

I remember driving Las Virgenez in an old Mustang convertible during my college years (btw, with license plate: topless), which was fun, but nowhere as fun as in the Z!





Haven't done Mulholland yet.

Hey Nikki,
Nice pics - even if with just a point and shoot, the feeling of the PHC is conveyed. The marine layer hugging the rocky coast as a backdrop just brings out the pure joy we all get when top-down driving our Z4's. As you know, I was riding my other BMW (the bike) on CPH back in July - so many great roads in CA.

I see you took your pup with you too!

Hi az,

Since you're in Montreal, I see why your car is in hibernation. Will it not be able to come out and play til spring?

Hi Scott,

It was your account of the bike trip that made me want to go up the coast, so it's all your fault, lol. Do you know that relatively straight bit of the road as you approach Point Piedras Blancas (elephant seal beach) right after Cambria? That was the only bit where I got the Z past 100mph and she was loving it!

My pup is a travel pro

Yes indeed "spectacular" is the word ... parked almost in the very same spots last year in my then Z4 35i ... sure was spectacular!

I'm happy to take the "blame" for that trip! lol

Nice that you got to stretch the Z's legs a bit - I'm always seeing CHP on the coast hwy...takin' all the fun out of things.

Great car, nice owner, and Sweeeet Puppy! Life is Good!

I enjoyed the same drive last July coming back from Laguna Seca/Monterey Grand Am/Rolex event.

Great pic, looks like you enjoyed a clear day (often cloudy & overcast there).
