Out of interest, I have got a set for £1890 incl VAT fitted and they are Dunlop's
Is that a price anybody can get?

Talking of which, has anyone got any tips on the best filling station brands for getting 99? I've never had to think about that on my few previous business journeys in Europe.

In France you'll probably need to use TOTAL Excellium

Thanks John.

I hope on the way back Germany will be easier with more tasty cars on the road.

That may be fine for some cars but for the R35 we need 255/40 ZRF20 front and 285/35 ZRF20 rear.

Thanks for the offer.

By the way, I own a couple of Total fuel stations and we sell Excellium petrol and diesel. The octane rating is 97ron but to be honest it is pretty cr*p
(Hope Total don't read this forum)

I am just going to use what I can and adjust the boost etc to cope. Ecutec mangage the anti knock very well, and a standard R35 will cope with 95ron albeit with less power output. After my previous escapades with the French police I will not be pushing my luck anyway.

Hi Guys,
I just can't tell when I'll need the new tyres.
Maybe after Michelin, maybe after Stelvio Pass.
Whatever, I have driven on canvas a few times over the years.
Aaagh, Maureen's called me down for dinner and more wine. Must go.

Verily 'tis true.

Much opportunity to explore both wine and tyre wear soon.

Is anyone on this trip up for writing a daily blog? Maybe someone in a car not driving could do it through the day and then upload when you arrive at the hotel. In return we will pay any WiFi charges if the hotel charges. We did this for the Japan trip in January and it got a lot of readership. Here is one of the example days: Japan Tour 2012 ? day 4: Nissan DNA Centre (Zama) and Nissan HQ

When you get to Monaco you will be staying in one of the best hotels in the world. Aside from a chance to enjoy Monte Carlo itself - the hotel is in one of the very best locations - there is also a chance to drive around some of the local roads. We have arranged a small tour for you while you are there, perhaps not quite as quick as these but we hope you enjoy all the same




...and if you haven't seen the film yet you really must try and get to see it
