: This Thursday, a friend and I are flying back east from Los Angeles to pick up our E30 M3's. I'm flying to North Carolina and he to Florida. Once I pick up my car, I'm driving to Spartanburg, SC to check out the BMW facilities, including the new Performance Center (though it's probably not open yet). From there, I'll drive through Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. My friend will drive from Florida and meet me in Jackson, Mississippi. Then we'll continue through Louisiana, Texas, etc back to California.
: So, any tips for the long drive? Anyone live along this route that will offer us bread and water? :)

Make sure you've got an extra set of sparkplugs and a socket that fits. Extra belts too unless they've been replaced in the last year. Check all fluid levels before leaving, especially the trans and rear end.
Should be an interesting trip. Keep a daily log and post trip report somewhere we can read it.
