Just recently got back from our little Xmas vacation to S.W Ireland (Kerry to be exact), a journey of approx 3.5 hours in Ireland (Rosslare/Fishguard) & 4.0 hours in UK (Fishguard/Essex), with a 4.0 hour break in between for the ferry crossing, etc. Arrived home at approx 05:00 hrs.

I got out of the car more refreshed and on a high than when i got in the car to start my journeythe previous evening. Wife and kids were happy asleep, I was happy driving. (even better when they are all asleep, as i don't have to have the radio on for them...lol)

Hard to put into words how i felt after my drive, but if people could see my smile, it'd be worth a thousand of them.

I have this problem...

Wife and sprog when we go for a run in the alfa normally doze off, me left to my own devices get a little more right foot heavy...

Suddenly the wife wakes - and I'm in trouble....

She never slept when I had a BM - so far it's the only advantage to BM ownership I've seen... Didn't like the 5 series sports seats....

Hi
I drove to Italy two years ago in the GTA via Marseille and then car on to the ferry to my home in Sardinia for the summer holidays, the car was perfect all the way and back, the only one complaining was the wife saying that I was going to fast.

I have now changed to a 3.2 GT and I am planning my next trip probably in the spring I just can’t wait!!!!!!!:D :D :D

Good on ya, m8!

Your post just reminded me to start looking forward to the first weekend in March, when I'll be on my merry way to the French Alps for a long weekend's skiing... 900 km of pleasure ahead of me, and 900 coming back, with a load of twisties in between.


Oh - and Tuscany coming up this summer - take her back home for a spin :cool:
