Really looking forward to seeing what this car is like on a long ride.

Will try and get some nice pics of the car is the mountain passes but won;t be making it to the Stelvio pass this time round. Maybe next year.

Anyone done this before? The French police need require us to carry bulbs for the car. Anyone found a cost effective way of getting all the bulbs that would satisfy the Gendarmes ?
Halfords do kits with a selection of lamps. There won't be one which matches the Stelvio, but the Gendarmes won't know.

I've driven through France to Italy 2 or 3 times in most of the last 30 years and I'm yet to encounter a gendarme who's shown any interest in whether I'm carrying the kit the French law requires.
