Looks like a right adventure, not sure I would survive a trip like that with the missus. What colour is your car? I am a fan, mine is looking a bit sharper now I have fresh doors on. But the tornado red is more of a hot pink.

you should mate! It was good having my gf riding shotgun, would have got a bit boring on my own lol

Capri green!! Best colour! I had a mk2 golf in exactly the same colour, is 25 percent of the reason i bought the polo :)
ahh give her a good mop, should restore a bit of clarity. Hot pink is thr in colour right now :P

It was seriously the best week of my life and highly recommend it to anyone!

well heres a little footage of a mountain section
sorry about the qaulity, its a crap camera and uploading it to the net on a free video editing software has ruined the qaulity! its no where near that bad on my laptop from my files

its annoying as it makes us look like we are going slow, but it was pretty dam fast for public roads!
annoyingly i didnt get a pic, but at the end my brakes are litterly on fire, there are huge piles of white smoke coming from the discs and pads. like the same amount you would get from a small fire!! my car stank of burning brakes for the next day lol, was insane!!

Yeah European road trips are great fun, I've gradually extended the distance I've covered over the years but I've only taken the G40 as far as the Ring.

I drove a new BMW Z4 back from Tuscany in May, taking the long route. Italy, France, Monaco, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France (again) then back into the UK. Great fun! I thought I'd uploaded the photos on here but it looks like I didn't. :-\

I just cycled from Zurich to Bormio to ride up the Stelvio and the Gavia. It's way more fun on a bike than in a car! ;) It took 1 hour and 26mins to ride up from Bormio. I recommend heading that way with your bike (if you have one) in the back of your car!
