I am not a fan of road trips. I just don't like being in the car for hours at a time, and growing up, my parents wanted to "drive straight through the night" only stopping for gas, food to eat in the car and bathroom breaks. I am thinking though, with the required charging stops, I may be more inclined to take more road trips. I live in Dallas and have read lots of stories of MS owners picking up their new cars at the factory and wondered if this would still be an option with the lower priced, mass produced M3? I would like to make a trip of it, staying in the Bay area before delivery and then stopping off in Las Vegas, Sedona, and other spots on the way home taking 5 days or so to see the sights.
