ED is f***ing sweet (pics)

2 weeks in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Austria


Picked up the car in Munich. It is now named der Gewitterwolke.


Drove straight to Nürburg. Stayed a the Ringhaus (hotel Altes Forsthaus), which was an incredibly comfortable and convenient place to stay (walking distance from the entry gate and Nürburg).


Walked around town:






The ring taxi was on display:


Went on a beer run to Brussels


Das Booty from the beer run


Took my first lap


(VID)

Did some spectating:








Went to Berlin:



saw some more cars there:






Went to Ingolstadt


Went to the Audi Museum


Back to the Welt to use my remaining cafe credit


Back to Munich to the BMW Museum












Went to Dachau


Saw this flat brown X6 on the A9


Back to Munich



Went to Salzburg



Back to Munich


Farewell wash


My surrogate until the boat gets here:

Nice trip. I wish I could have spent more time at the 'ring when I was there. That's really cool that you found a shot of your car on the 'ring cam. I wasn't as lucky. Unfortunately, the BMW museum was closed when I was there. It looks pretty impressive.

The BMW museum looks a lot better from your pics from when I was there. They only had about 10 cars and something I allotted about 5 hours for ended up taking me only 1. I almost want to buy another car just so I can do ED.

Awesome trip. Saw that you visited Augusteiner, one of the best beers in Munich. We visited their main Biergarten for brunch and it was unbelievable. Nothing like a Weissbier at 11am

yeah, ED is definitely the way to go. Even though I am completely in love with the new car, I am already calculating the hows and whens of the next one. Will definitely try to make it back to the ring sometime soon - 2 laps is not enough. Driving the Autobahn was definitely more, um, engaging than regular US highway driving. It was kind of a surreal feeling slowing down to 160kph/100mph. Thx for the compliments on the pix, I am still sorting through the vids that I took at the ring, will youtube those and post them up when I get free time. I saw some truly bad ass fire-breathing cars there.

Hi ryebred!

very nice Pics, very nice Car
but the name of your car has to be "die Gewitterwolke" or just "Gewitterwolke" . a "Gewitterwolke" ist female so "die Gewitterwolke"

Greetings from Munich

Marco

Hey Marco - I had a suspicion she was a "she" all of the time, but that damn dirty liar google told me otherwise. So hard to keep all of the noun genders straight. Now I have some time to learn some more German before I go back.

Hell yeah that Eisbock is strong. I had 0.5l of the regular Aventinus and two of the Eisbocks and I was glad I was only 2 stops away from the Hotel on the S-Bahn. Went to sleep very quickly that night.

How much would it be to ship it back compared to just having it delivered stateside?
