I drove my BMW 545i on "The Dragon" last year. It was a bit of a detour for me as I was on my way back from Charlotte... but man am I glad I did. Of course, it was later in the year, so most of the crazy bikers had given up the helmets for the year... but man it was fun! There's nothing like carving a car like that into those bends and just feeling the power pulling you through a curve.

The SVX would also be damned good for this... though there's no doubt in my mind the 545i was better unless you've done significant suspension upgrades

Re: Helloooo...

It's more about getting together than the drive, but the rode (even at the speed limit) is a really cool drive, and great scenery abounds in the area...and there are many, less know, equally as good roads in the area too...
