    Euro Road trip!!!!!!!

    I was bricking it with the prospect of snow, I did have snow socks. But based on my 5 miles of snow driving from Honiton to the A38 last winter (now 2018) and how bad the RWD auto was I was not looking forward to it.

    Euro Road trip!!!!!!!

    Evening team! Got back about an hour ago, glad to be home but not the UK roads. They in comparison are congested, everyone sits at the same speed and in the middle lane! In Europe everyone seems to use the lanes properly, and it just flows. Overall a good performance from the F11, 2 adults, a load of luggage and it drove really well. Mrs had it up at 130 Mph, but it sat comfortably at 90 to 100. Hotel and city car parks seem really small, it was a struggle parking and / or getting out of the car. We did over 2120 miles and used 3 and 3/4 tanks of fuel. Some places were £76 for a full tank! and £80 for V-Power!!!! (didn't notice any difference) 6 countries, no prangs or kerbs hit! and (fingers crossed) no tickets!!!!!

    I'd like to say I was bombing it along, but even the 5 can not compete with a rude French man and his citeron!

    Euro Road trip!!!!!!!

    Afternoon team 5'er, So we are here in one piece. 8hr 10min door to door, could have been 7 if we caught the earlier train but it had a delay. 390 miles in half a tank. Although the first half of the tank seems bigger than then the second half. The mrs drove to the tunnel getting 49.5mpg. Then we sat at 90 mph in France. Got overtaken, not by the RS6 or Lambo in our lane, but an irate French man in his citron belingo doing light speed. Here in Brugge, tourists, then dogs, then horses have right of way as it took us 35 min from the road to the hotel. Fingers crossed for Germany!
