    Haha

    We are driving across Europe in 6 weeks time some of the places in the alps we are staying at I doubt have 3G let alone WiFi!

    Of course I’ll be taking a small bag of cleaning products to keep the car tip-top whilst away !

    I'm debating a similar thing, going Germany for a few weeks, but not sure the practicality of keeping it looking good when away without access to kit.

    At Easter we went to south Brittany , I just took a basic kit with me, QD , small bottle of triple q, glass cleaner and some cheap clothes that got used once and thrown away

    Just enough bits to clean all the dead bugs off and the brake dust from the wheels
    Found it nice just chilling with a beer sorting the car out , bit of me time

    Not keen , just like to keep the car looking good and makes my life easier if I clean the bugs off before they bake on !

    I’ll post my kit up once I do it !
    Might even do a thread on the trip as it should be pretty awsome

    Calais , Luxembourg , Munich , sankt am pettersbourg ( Austrian alps) lake Garda , Innsbruck , stuttgardt , Calais !

    14 days in total but only 4.5 half driving them ! About 24 hours in total driving
    Will be taking in some fast autobahn and some scenic trans alps routes oh and a bit of driving with the crazy Italians

    C'mon! Me and rs3copilot in a 3-week run around France in a 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint back in 1983; the drive: home in Staffordshire to: Portsmouth and overnight ferry to Saint Malo and then onto: Bordeaux/Toulouse/Carcassone/Montpellier/Marseille/Cannes/Nice/Monaco/Gap/Grenoble/Chambery/Geneva/Dijon/Chaumont/Reims/Arras/Calais - and then home with 48-bottles of the redstuff...

    And for sure NO mobile anything back then, just a map...

    Great fun and no worries: here at the French/Italy control in the Alps:

    Italian Alps.JPG

    And yes, I had a wash sponge and leather - but no bucket :racer:

    @jassyo06 missed postman Pat earlier today as Mrs had very low shopping levels, which had to be brought back to normal on a priority basis . It simply means she was out shopping hence missed the parcel

    Thanks and will thank again tomorrow once collected and unboxed

    I can swap it with BSD and CG V7 . Jokes aside, I can throw in Cure along with 250ml of Beadmaker if interested.
