Wow, what a road trip! You put 1,5x more kms on your Käfer on the trip than I did on my 156 over one whole year! Also cool photos :thumbsup:

Just rolled over 50Mm, recently noticed two things about the connected part of the infotainment:
Good: they changed the rain map from "three hours of past radar images" to "the most recent radar image and three hours of rain forecast" 👏
Bad: When you delete a destination from the web portal it's only deleted in the portal, not in the satnav... wouldn't be a big issue if the satnav didn't some day deny importing new destinations from the web because it was "full", and wouldn't be a big issue if you could bulk-delete out-of-date imports... however, you have to manually delete them one by one :shakefist: ...last year's Norway trip alone was 100+ waypoints...

Just returned from an epic five week 9000km trip 😎

Somewhat rocky start, heard clinking noises under load changes... as it turned out after a while of poking around and finally removing the massive Unterfahrschutz, that silver clip holding the cable in place was loose 😅

Some free new rubber during the free second service at 61000km :nod:

Who are all these people and why did they all park like an idiot? :tease:

Sucessfully removed excess stickers... the Beetle ones were smooth sailing, the F1 one turned bitchy and again needed @nicjasno's special sauce :D

I'd call that successful :nod: I'm leaving the three vignettes and the Feinstaub sticker for VW...

God damn, you like to make it tough :p

Is that... is that another beetle in the same colour? Did you lease one right before the end of production? Either that or you bought a Chevy HHR. :p

Edit: Ah god damn, I should let the page load fully before replying. Nice BMW!

The supply of German Beetles stopped last year, so it's not a VW. The ones made this year until the beginning of the summer aren't coming here.

@prizrak no convertible Ns :dunno:
