I like it, and I haven't even seen it, due to a slow hotel internet line.
Having driven most of your route myself with a suitable BMW E30, I know the feeling.

Based on the title of the thread, I was expecting footage from Nürburgring, but these mountain passes are also great for those who really like to drive.

It is so insanely hot in Houston this month that looking at patches of snow on a mountain provides me with great relief.

Did 5 of the passes you did during my M4 European delivery! I can confirm that the footage is from those passes!

Just love the roads in that part of Europe.

Yes, that is the one I have used for my trips in the Alps as well. If the motorcyclists like a mountain pass, it is usually nice for driving enthusiasts in cars too. Some passes have tunnels running in parallel. The normal traffic runs through the tunnel, and people like us drive over the mountain. In that case, there is not so much traffic.

I remember in the E30, I liked a couple of passes so much that I drove back and ran over one more time! :-)
