2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Passing Quietly Through 5,000 Miles

March 17, 2014

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo

Interstate road trips are a sure way to pile on the miles, so it wasn't too much of a surprise when our 2014 BMW 3281 GT clicked through 5,000 miles on the way back from Oregon.

It's not much of a milestone, I admit. Nothing much goes wrong this early on.

But it's a numbers thing. Some folks like to commemorate those occasions when the odometer rolls past a string of nines and replaces them with a neat row of zeroes. You can count me among this crowd, but I suppose it was more of an event in the days of mechanical odometers.

For those that are into this sort of thing, it's traditional to show where "it" happened.

Ready?

Are you sure?

Sadly, there's nothing particularly memorable about this location. It's just Interstate 5, southbound, in the rain, near Grant's Pass, Oregon.

*Golf clap*

Then again, 5,000 miles isn't much of an accomplishment these days. Perhaps 10,000 miles will be more memorable.
