Wales, A drivers playground......27-29 Dec

Having chilled out and far to much eating over the xmas period, a blast around mid/northern Wales was just what the doctor had ordered, so Marcus and his M3 and I descended upon a very wet Snowdonia and an icy Evo triangle for a bit of play.......



















































































































And when in Wales.....

AW 1M + dirt= supersexy.
Though the AW E92 M3 is very nice as well, I 100% prefer the whole looks and stance plus driving experience of the 1M.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

I have to be honest, much of the 'dirt' down the sides is actually sheep shit

Lovely shots there. My wife and I will be in Wales late May for a Snowdon walk and train trip as part of our 4 weeks driving tour through the UK and Ireland.
Any tips on where to stay?
Good to see that 1M and M3 owners can still be friends

Thanks guys.

For anyone from this parts of the woods and who have not driven the many great Welsh roads, do so, you can starts from the Brecon Beacons region and make your way north with some of the best driving roads in the country. General just you and the sheep taking advantage of the great roads

Next tour, Northern Scotland March - April time.....
