    Very nice Matt, I assume you got a man bag to go with all that pepita?
  2. I'll be up for a group order if more folk are interested?
  3. +1, those roads look nice & views are nice but not much fun to drive, besides there is always the risk of getting stuck behind a train of cars and not enough road to overtake them all in one go. Fast flowing curvy roads are infinitely more fun. -1, I have done plenty of crazy long drives when i was younger but as I have gotten older it has become a bit more challenging. If the idea is to enjoy the drive then for me 800 miles in a day is not fun and by the sound of it you are not on a time budget so no need. If you have too, make sure you get a good night's sleep beforehand and maybe a power nap after lunch to avoid drowsy driving.
  4. @Dr Rock Yes it was 2015 as I had just gotten my IB in June and was on my first IB meet. @SP72 Perhaps you should get your own back by taking me to the same spot ... I'm sure with or without Fraser you'll easily pull away and I end up spending a fortune on a power hike. We (Car & I) have lost a combined 100 kg but doubt it will make up the power deficit. I probably stand a better chance of keeping up with my 73.
  5. I think last time I sat in your car was back in 2015 when Stephen organized the cotswolds run and you thought it lacked ultimate power. It felt pretty fast to me then so really curious to know how it feels now.
  6. Single horizontal stripe across the bumper ala RS beaks it up, some even use Martini stripe, if thats your thing.
  7. IIRC @pht9 did his SCR to FIA spec without a smile but then was forced to add it later due to FIA requirements, pretty sure he had with/without pics on this thread, might be worth a look.
  8. I have a few friends in the apparel industry so could help with sourcing & printing of Tshirts.
  9. Looks like I will be having a +1 with me too (if ok)?
  10. I have Weber 46 on my 3.2 engined 73 and got 24 mpg on a typical long drive with motorway and b roads with the usual bursts of excitement. As it's a non sunroof 73 with RS seats car is lighter than average but on 14 fuchs which probably offsets the mpg gain of lighter weight. Blasting on B roads drops mpg to under 20.
  11. Every road trip I have been on has included quite a variety, from really nice right down to camping and even sleeping in the car - I enjoyed the variety and in my experience its quite refreshing to spend the odd night or two in a nice hotel, even better if its after a night camping in tent which might appeal to some in order to offset some costs. I'm ok with whatever but prefer single rooms. Thanks for the route details on other thread, isn't it B500 (Bundesstrasse 500) rather than A500?
