SR+ Adventures (Continued)


Nov 12, 2019
Sydney Australia
Hi again from the Sydney Covid refugees.

Back home now but I have something you may find interesting.
We drove out from Orange to Ophir.
Ophir is the first place in Australia to produce commercial quantities of gold.
But that's not the story.
The road at the end of the trip is dirt, and there is a very sharp, steep turn into the "camping ground".
I thought that it was going to be interesting when we left as it is uphill rather that downhill.
I watched as a Nissan Patrol and a Land Rover drove up the hill after going around this steep right hand turn.
The Patrol stalled twice before getting up.
The Land Rover had some troubles stopping and then bouncing up and away.
The SR+ had no problems at all. I just slowly, 10km/h, approached the road/turn and up we went. No dramas at all.
Remember, this is not all wheel drive, rear wheel drive only.
But comparing 2 4WDs and the SR+, my M3 SR+ had no problems.
Maybe instead of videos showing how fast Teslas are, show how high, low speed tourqe is a real world bonus.
Nine weeks away, no problems charging, and driving on all sorts of roads, the SR+ did not miss a beat and was a joy to drive.
