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

Can't wait... going to Germany with a friend to attend the World's Largest Tuner Car Show next Thursday (Nov 28th). I'll be gone for only 1 week in time for ImportFest upon return. 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.

Staying over there costs a small fortune as a tourist... lodging and car rental is stoopid expensive!.... not to mention the $2.00/Liter of gas ($100 to fill a tank) and all those $25.00 Schnitzel dinners!

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

you lucky SOB!!!

I dunno where you get it, but $2 a liter is not true.

When you will come up to InPro stand tell them your headlights are Scheisse, they are melting and then spit in their face.

anyway have fun, bring some photos

Germany

You'll have an excellent time Randy. I hope you booked your car rental already. It's cheaper to do it here, before you go than while you're there. If you end up forgetting. Call someone up from home and get them to do it for you! Trust me! Also....book your BMW (Munich) tour ASAP. When I was there in the spring, it was mandatory to do it about 2 weeks in advance. Who knows, you might get lucky. And you will be spending a lot Euros!!!!! Bring lots! German beer is excellent! Hope you like sausages, cause there's plenty to choose from.

Have fun.

Rico

P.S. Fly the flag for us!
