  1. For fear of going off topic, PS4s are also sold in the happiest place on earth (otherwise known as Costco) for £414.40 a set...which seems okay to me!

    Battery

    Knowing that "what battery," can easily turn into a "tyre," or "oil" thread (and turn into the opening of Pandora's box), I have a Varta on my car which is now 8 1/2 years old. It's gets occasional conditioning and seems to work perfectly still...which disconcerts me as it must be on borrowed time. I have a Bosch in another car that has done nearly 8 years and still seems to work but I have a marginal (and possibly irrational) preference for the Varta.
  3. That was 2019"s route...and I should have stayed there. Instead I stayed somewhere...where I didn't get murdered...which about all I can say positive about the place!
  4. The 2021 plan is to do most passes on weekdays; Baden-Baden to Vaduz would be a Sunday but that's quite light on passes (and N500 would be before 09:00, anyway). Plan is to avoid Stelvio (box ticked in 2019) and do Fuorn Pass (done as a link road in 2019) and Mont la Schera tunnel instead. I quite enjoyed Col de la Bonette in 2019...but I was on the road before 08:30 on a Monday (crap hotel, killer location) but, on the whole, preferred the Swiss passes to the French...so will re-do some of those I did last time, add some more and add some Austria this year...if I can. I'm also planning on taking the red car on this trip - it'll be interesting to see how the Oaf is in the hills (and motorway days in 40+ heat might be slightly less unpleasant).
  5. I agree - a road I did as a "link" road last time (between Fluela and Umbrail) - it's just so pretty!
  6. Looking at 2019's plan: I see I have missed Foscano off the 2021 plan. To be added between Livigno and St Moritz - it's a good 'un (and I'll be doing it W - E, as opposed to last time's E - W)
  7. I was planning on running solo on this...but i think blocks of my plotted route look rather like RB's 2020 plan...
  8. After a little drive in 2019 (https://www.impactbumpers.com/forum/index.php?/topic/34231-alpine-route-planning-2019/) the time has come to plot 2021’s drive. This assumes that borders open for 10 days this summer which is a lot to ask but one has to have hope (trip plans = hope) and something to distract me from the news (bleak) and work (all I seem to currently do) is needed! The current plan looks a bit like the below: This is: - Very rough and - A little inspired (partially flagrantly ripped off) from RB’s 2020 road trip. I haven’t quite worked out how the days are going to split (a couple are a little longer than might be ideal but not dissimilar to the last trip…and this trip’s car will have a roof, decent AC and will be subjected to its idiot owner seeing how close to the claimed top speed he can get in Germany on the way) but are there any passes that I should be looking to add to this trip as it stands?
  9. Oh. I haven't even washed mine yet... (but I have bought a selection of new wheel brushes - it was time I replaced the old ones...and none of them were long enough for the rear wheels). Need to decide if I'm waxing (R222) this car or GTechniq'ing. Decisions...
  10. I'll have a look at the book and the car at the same time (looked at both, separately) and think it's different to the 4 pots under there, too. A job for the weekend!
  11. 374 now; no more for a couple of weeks as having surgery on my finger next week and consultant has forbidden me from driving until then. Have you fitted a battery conditioner to your Spyder...and, if so, did you go for batter -ve or car -ve?
  12. That looks fantastic! You also have my favourite seats (offered in MY20 Spyders but not in GT4s) which are much, much comfier than the stupid fixed buckets (shoulder things where my shoulder blades are) and which can be had heated...which is quite desirable on an open car!
  13. I have had too many black cars (not that many cars...but always at least one black car for the last couple of decades). If I could have ordered that interior (which looks superb), I would have probably ordered another one, too!
