    Post here as soon as you are a definite (or you have to pull out). Also, I've put a few down as definite from what you have posted, let me know if you are actually a maybe.

    The sooner everyone is confirmed the sooner we can book and the more chance we have of all staying in the same hotel(s).

    Anyone not got a turbo on their cars? Been reading up a bit and if you don't have one you'll lose a lot of power at high altitude! My mates merc is a 1.8 non-turbo! Might struggle to move!

    about 1% less per 100 meters apparently, and I think we're going to exceed 2000 meters on the trip


    at 2000 meters a 140bhp 1.8 NA will be pushing out around 112bhp!

    Don't worry mate, you've got a turbo, it'll just take you a bit longer to spool up!

    In N/A engines the air pressure effects the power of the engine (the less oxygen the less power).

    Yeah Ali, the last trip was a blast for sure!!

    Its looking positive for this one too! Im sure a fair few will drop out for various reasons, but even half a dozen cars or so would make it a real good weekend.

    These trips make driving fun again

    Yeah, hope so too. He's already paid for the eurotunnel so should make the trip a bit cheaper for him!

    Lol. It meant to be a Thai boxing fight well several fights. In a cage i believe... in a nightclub. Just thought strange to hold a seated fight there.

    Us lads up north will fight anywhere lol

    Anyway, it should be a good day, and chance for a good catch up!

    P.S. the seats been pissing me off, the bolster on the drivers side has a serious gimp in it.


    So i moaned about it whilst booking it in for the creaking steering, which theyre now saying could be some dodgy bushes??

    I dont care as long as it gets sorted (second time lucky i hope)

    P.P.S. Spacers ordered today, for a birthday present!! I love my missus :D

    Trust me, the S3 drinks with the best of them when you press on a bit!

    The tunnel isn't usually an issue, it's the hotel we need to make sure we book in good time, especially since there are so many of us. I recon get everything booked up a month before hand will be pretty safe.

    Just thinking, any sort of documentation that we might need to get sorted beforehand would be handy to know too, ive travelled abroad before to Nice but never to the Alps so it may well be different for different countries?

    When you take your car to Europe you have to carry your V5 Registration Document with you as well. Also make sure you notify your insurance company that you are taking your car abroad otherwise you may find your not insured. A European Health Insurance Card that entitles to you to basic heathcare in another EU country is always a good idea. These are free from the NHS but you must apply for one.

    Also if you are going to be driving in Switzerland and you wear glasses for driving you must carry a spare pair with you.

    Spare bulbs, flourscent jackets and warning triangles are also a requirement in most EU countries.
