May be worth nipping an hour down the road to Headcase(Patrick) in East Sussex. He can work his magic on it then :)

Sounds like a run, in 6 days,

Folkestone England.
Calais France.
Black Forest Germany.
Interlaken Switzerland.
Grimsel Pass Switzerland.
Furka Pass Switzerland.
Tremola Road Switzerland.
Gotthard Pass Switzerland.
San Bernardino Pass Switzerland.
Fluela Pass Switzerland.
Umbrail Pass Switzerland.
Stelvio Pass Italy.
Bolzano Italy.
Salzburg Austria.
Monte Carlo.
Somewhere on the way back to Calais.

3 V6's going so far :)
Definitely interested. Are we still talking about the end of July?
However I would need to know a budget figure before being able to commit.
The coffers will need refilling after the Highland Drive!

Thanks. A couple of questions if I may.

What's with Salzburg? :confused1:
What route would we take from there to Monaco?

With three V6 cars going, I do not think anyone is going to have a very low fuel consumption.

BUT in saying that last time we went there were: 2 turbo’s, one N/A and one V6, we all averaged around 30 + mpg.

We will be taking the scenic routes along with lots of mountains, so road speed is relatively low
