Iv done something similiar in Polish mountains!

But, i was in a Polonez Cairo.. with two shot rear tires, a bucket / milk crates to hold the drivers seat from tilting all the way.. and a bad suspension.

I had alot of fun!! European roads are awesome.

I highly suggest this to anyone, and would consider it an awesome experience you will never forget.

Does there exist any info on a good suggested route to take after a European delivery? I will save it for if I am ever able justify doing this.

Hmm Italy you say, if I add Greece and Paris, I think I can convince the wife we are going on vacation.

I'll definitely do this one day, it's on my bucket list lol. My uncle lives near Geneva and the roads up in the Alps are stunning. Same goes for Italy.

Absolutely stunning video! The scenery, the roads.. talk about driving nirvana.

I was just in France a few weeks ago. rented an Audi A4 6MT (best I coule do for under $1000!), and drove from Monaco up into the mountains. Went to the Col De Turini (Top Gear favourite road and WRC stage). Was pretty awesome ... not very often do you have to downshift to 1st to get around a corner lol!

European delivery is definitely on my list as well ... maybe in about 5 years when I'm finally ready to buy a new M3 or something
