    Default Anyone along I-75 or in St Pete's Beach / Tampa area?

    Hi everyone,

    Planning a short road trip, from Toronto to Tampa... a 24 hour haul.

    Anyone along I75 or in the Tampa Bay area in case I need some help with enroute repairs?

    The E34 has done this trip 3x before... but this is the first time with so many miles on the clock.

    Just hoping for a little insurance from my fellow bimmernuts.

    Thanks guys! I'm planning to leave this coming weekend, haven't set the exact day yet. If I get stuck, I'll hop on the board somehow and put out a call for assistance!

    I'm just outside of Philadelphia. Doubt that helps much, but if you get lost, wind up in philly, THEN break down, i could possibly help! Lets just hope it doesn't come to that....

    Thanks TheGeak and Winfred....

    Geak there's always the possibility of taking I95 instead! I was in Philly and NYC with car just 3 weeks ago!

    Winfred... not sure about a detour to baton rouge, but you never know!!!

    Thanks again guys...

    Hey Rod,

    I'm in NC, not too far from the I-95/I-40 intersection, stop by and pickup some parts on your way home !!! Or, I'd be glad to help if you run into some trouble in this part of the world.

    Good luck, Bret.

    Hey Rigmaster...

    Thanks for the offer of assistance.

    Yes, I remember you have parts... and if I'm anywhere near I'll definitely look you up. Come to think of it, maybe I'll go down I75 and up I95 and pick up parts all along the way.

    Only problem is I need place to install them! I guess I could bring a tent and jackstands and work there, kind of like the Rally series you see on Speed Channel.
