Re: I'm Flying to Germany next week...... (car fanatic's dream!)

Randy,

Awesome! I'll be going to Munich in January for 2 months. Business trip. First class tickets and all expenses paid.

I definitely want to talk to you when you come back. You are gonna have to tell me about all these places that have to be visited, and just must be seen.

I also can't wait to try out the Alps...Gonna have to bring my racing skiis.

Serge

Just take a look at the Exhibitor list! I'll be sure to take thousands of pics to share with you guys. We'll also be renting a car for driving to other countries to check out tons of car tuner shops AND of course test it by doing laps at the Nurburgring Race Track. I'm looking into booking appointments for factory tours at BMW, Mercedes and Porsche.

Thanks a lot guys.... I'm sure I'll have a ton of stories to share. I'm actually half German descent and have already been there numerous times. Part of my job going is to help translate at the Motor Show for a company I'm partly representing so I won't really have time to visit any relatives.

The rental car is already booked... we requested some sort of TDi. Diesel is quite a bit cheaper in fuel (Yes Vlad, their supreme gas costs almost $2.00/L) and can almost go 1000km per tank (I got 850km consistant last trip flooring it @200km/h with a Golf IV TDi).

I'm really looking forward to a Porsche Factory Tour.... I hear it's a little more personal, sometimes being only the tour guide himself instead of a bus-load of tourists with polaroids sharing the experience.

Have a safe trip buddy, just watch out for all those's power and control freaking square heads!!! Who love to bitch and start confrontational arguments at just about anything their business doesn't even apply to. They'll go to great lengths (sometimes desperate measures) to prove a point. Funny little Germans, there a weird breed!!! ha ha

Don't worry about those pics guys... got the spy-cam charging!

Welcome in Europe where live is expensive hehe here fuel prices are even worser Anyway enjoy your trip
And like Rico said the beer is great
