    Great looking wheels, have you considered coming on the Euro NSX tour 19th May?

    It's a great trip with up to 50 NSX's, you'd love it. Probably a good chance of still being able to book up as well.

    Sounds tempting but I've already organised the trip with a few mates and we leave on Monday 22nd, for a five day trip through France and Switzerland, incorporating some of the so called 'Euro Driving Roads', only one NSX in our party though and it's got to keep up with a couple of Porsches and and F-Type R .... no problem eh !!.

    Maybe join you next year.

    Through France to Basel, Zurich, Liechtenstein, through the San Bernardino pass, then Airolo, Bern and back into France.

    Thanks, I hope all the snows melted and the roads are fully open !

    Chances are good that you won't have any snow as long as you go above 1500 m. Zürich, Basel, Liechtenstein are about 400 m. San Bernardino pass is about 2000 m, the tunnel about 1600 m. Roads have been salted recently again due to the last winter 'rebel'. I'm not going to drive my car until the salt has been washed off the roads after some rainy days.

    Pay attention to speeding, +10 km/h is no big crime but >+25 km/h certainly IS. The modern cameras are so slim you'll only see them when it's too late.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll drop you a line closer to the time and check on the roads, if that's Ok ?

    Is there any pass we will need to get, to display in the windscreen, to drive through Switzerland ?

    That's ok.

    For the highway you need an 'Autobahnvignette', SFR 40, one per car you have to put on the windscreen. You should be able to buy them at the border.

    EDIT: that's how it looks like this year. Once put it on the glass you can't remove it without destroying it. Even then it's hard to remove it (a 10 minutes job every year...). Even though some people use transparent double tape to fix and remove it to use it on another car the fine (SFR 200) will be as if you have none.

    Car feels so much better on the new tyres, the old ones were that old, they were as hard as plastic, so hardly surprising.
