  • Road trip around Europe

    Incase anyone is interested me and a few friends are just about to embark on a road trip around Europe. Our route takes us down to Monte Carlo & then on to find the roads used in an older top gear episode. We will come back past the Nurburgring and Spa and if open have a couple of cheeky laps. We are likely to be doing between 4000-5000 miles and i will try to post pics of our progress depending on my internet access.

    So if anyone is remotely interested.... watch this space!

                    thanks for all the comments. Yup it is a lot of mileage but in my opinion its the best way to see the most of a country.

                    Not taking the VXR as it would cost too much in fuel and it needs new tyres. Going in a 530d bmw.. still pretty quick and is very comfortable but more importantly can do 50+ mpg without much effort. You wouldnt be able to tell we use it for road trips.... 06 plate & 71000 miles!
