Thanks Colin, it’s going to make getting rid of it all that harder. The ///M is calling me but I’ve put so much time and effort in this one I don’t know if I’ll be able to let it go when the time comes!

Amazing trip! Well done for doing your homework - looks like it totally paid off. :)

I had never even heard of the Vercors until last year. They made quite an impression on me too. They might not have the wow factor of the alpine passes but, like you say, there is just so much good road out there and so often you have it all to yourself.
2008 Z4MC: SG/Imola | sub-flimper spec | +OEM CSLs | +KWv3 | +TMS RTABLs | +VT mounts | +Eventuri | +OEM strut brace | +DB9 front BBK | +cruise - probably looks a bit like your one

Great pics!

Also good to know the car was faultless and you enjoyed the driving, after all it’s what these cars were built for!

Am too paranoid to take my //M on a Euro roadtrip, though know from my 3.0SE just how good they are.

If you've got the space & savings, my suggestion would be to keep the Coupe for the roadtrips, acquire an //M for crazy moments

Why are you paranoid about taking your M to Europe?

Looks like the trip of a lifetime! Being the first, you'll never forget it, Mate. Some great pics and stunning scenery. Makes me want to bring my trip forward a year!

This sort of post makes belonging to this Forum so brilliant! Great that MrPT could give his recommendations. We all benefit.. :thumbsup:
