    Smile Off to Italy :D See you in 10 days!!!!

    Well.. once the missus has finally finished doing her hair, I shall be dragged away from this site on the long 1000km trek to Italy. Weathers looking pretty shoddy on the route down, but clear skys once we arrive.

    Hopefully the Siggy holds out after its coolant repairs And I shall report back later with some pictures from Lake Garda and the Stelvio Pass

    Have a goodun peeps!

    Thumbs up

    Well.. back from Italy.. now an engaged man, but the weather was amazing, above 30 every day! And the views were fantastic. Thought I would upload a few pics of the car

    Everything held out but I think I lost a weight on my front alloy on the Passo Della Stelvio lol.. made the drive back a tad shakey through the steering wheel

    As for the pics...

    1. En route on a shortcut from Lake Garda to Lake Iglis
    2. Coming Down Stelvio Pass.. Mrs is travel sick and pee'd off with me takings snaps of the car
    3. Bridge on a back road nr Lake Garda
    4. A view from the Pass south of Bolmio before Stelvio.. very narrow and no barriers.. great fun!! And not as busy as the Stelvio pass!!
    5. Again on the pass
    6-8. Views from both sides of the Stelvio pass and the view uptop from the Cafe area

    Lucky devil! We're going to be doing that next year. Was going to this year but only thought of it about a week ago and already doing 2500 miles this trip! We're going to the ring then on to Agde. Will try getting internet access on the laptop rather than phone to look at the pictures properly.

    haha wondered if anyone would notice!!! I thought Ihad the voice of an angel..

    As for the brakes.. I'm not a huge fan of them anyway they have a cheap feel to them. I wasn't ragging it particularly.. but not going slow either.. a moderately sporty drive, but after a few down hill hairpins they really did stink.

    Had the windows open and everytime we slowed down it stank. Like asbestos actually lol.. I didn't think it was my car but it was. Mainly the front so i think I will be ordering some green stuff pads and see how that goes.

    Also cars had a bit of a shake to the steering since too.. pretty sure its the balance on one of the wheels as it was a tad rough when I swapped the fronts and backs before I left.. Wasn't nice when I ignored it and got up to 130 on the autobahn to scare off a mercedes SLK... (not like I would of won) felt like a right wimp when I had to back off and was over taken by a VW Sharon who carried on after him lol
