Here is a video of an early morning blast over the black mountain pass in Wales.

when i went up there i couldn't get past 40mph - too many sheep and cyclists to really get the hammer down.

what time did you go?

That's near me, if I'm ever bored I can just go for a blast over that and then do a few of the others nearby. makes for a good afternoon. Best avoided on the weekends though.

Thanks for all the replies. The car is stock apart from a BMC filter and the 2.5 exhaust mod. The road is the A4069 in South Wales (Brecon Beacons). It was a national speed limit road until a few years ago, it is very safe to get up some speed though due to excellent sight lines, from the part I pass the camper van you can see almost all the way up to the hairpin to make sure there is no traffic coming the other way. I also got there at 5am and didn't see another car or anyone on the road until 6ish and left by 6:30am as the cyclists had arrived.

Fantastic road and in an M car it's just bliss.

What a fantastic bit of road. I recently did the NC500 as a final farewell to the car... that was a great trip too!! I'm already missing the V8 noise!

Yeah I have done parts of the highlands too, not in the M3 though. The highlands are amazing, I went last October and had pure blue skies for 3 days before the inevitable rain came, but it was the fact you could drive for hours at a time without seeing another car on the road, amazingly remote. I'm definitely going back sometime soon.
