Headlight lenses went really foggy over the past few months:

Finally I did some restoration work today, first dry sandig with 800, and later wet sanding with 2000 and 3000 paper. After that I polished the glass with a sealer. Result:

"I was promised hover cars by 2015! It's 2022 and I still don't... Eh, ok" :LOL:

Yeah, new summer rubber all around = the roadtrip season is on!

Buzzing off today, heading without time constriction towards Grasse in France, whilst taking all the swiss and french alpine passes inbetween:

After that not much is planned (as I like it that way), just about 10 days of alternating between V10 hooning through the french countryside visiting some points of interest, and beach bumming it at the Cote d'Azur. (y)

Look out for the guy with a death wish at 04:04
I was fully prepared to see a cyclist right there and wanted to complain that he had every right of being there... but then I remembered you know better and also: WTF rollerblades? on a country road? honestly? :eek: wow

^ Granted this road runs all the way parallel to the Autobahn and hence has barely any traffic on it all day, but still it's a 80km/h road (=100km/h for petrolheads lol), so atleast wear some day-glow clothes.

Well this was a really exzessive week of V10 hooning so far, much fun was had. GF lands tomorrow in Nice, she gets sick in the car over pass roads even when driven calm, so that's the reason why she comes by plane. Three days together at the beaches, then she takes the plane again, while I take on the french/italian/swiss pass roads again. My kind of holidays.

First video: The long sweeping north climb of the Furka Pass in Switzerland, did this on Monday. Sadly my DJI camera had sound problems.

More video: Going up the south side of the Col de la Bonette. And before somebody chimes in, yes at 1m30 I'm guilty of ignoring proper overtaking etiquette by forcing the Volvo to abandon his own overtaking attempt so I can take both cars in one go:

Gorgeous views. The photo of the wheel is actually giving me mild UK roadtrip flashbacks though.

If you had a Tesla you would have much less brake dust and a lot less expense in fuel, while having equal or more power. I don't expect you to give up the V10 for one but I know you were interested and I like teasing. :p
