Had to make a trip earlier this year to settle wedding plans. Drove from L.A. to Napa and back. Was on the 5 just after the grape vine and decided to open im' up and see what he could do. Got to 105 and was very satisfied. My fiancee even drove for a while (she can't drive a standard) and I got a chance to ride (and sleep) in the passenger seat I re-padded myself for the first and only time so far. I remember being very satisfied with my Klaus(von Bimmer) and happy that I purchased a car with serious personality.

: OK, decided on saturday afternoon to head out on the road for Pullman, WA to visit some friends. 300+miles away from home in seattle and extremely flat and boring after getting through the mountains. my littel red '02 kicked ass to say the least. not one problem anywhere to report, even oil consumption was normal, and fuel effeciency was amazing. it took me about 4 hours to make the whole journey only stopped for gas, and the cruising RPM's were steady at about 4300-4700. the sound from my engine was loud enough to keep me awake, i didnt even need my cd player. made it there safely and spent some good times with some old friends i hadnt seen in awhile. all in all a very successful weekend for me. all the hicks and other motorists were very puzzled to see a 30 year old car fly by them with such ease!! god i love my car!! well tell me/everyone else your favorite road trip in your '02 that you have ever had. thanks keep '02ing!!
