Time for some food......





Then on to the Albula Pass.









Hotel in Imst for the night.



With a parking space right outside for me.



Gathered round the laptop for the F1 with some beers.



Then food n more beer.

Awesome write-up - thanks for sharing! Been missing ED stories, so this was a nice surprise to see, esp with all the Alpine driving.

I did Stelvio during my M2 ED trip in Oct 2017 and got hooked on Alpine passes. Rented an M2 Comp in June 2019 and did Grossglockner. Sadly, I suffered the same fate as you with Gotthard/Furka/Grimsel/Susten being closed when I came through - and I was there a few weeks later too (June 6). I did hit Klausen on the way.

I'm planning another ED trip for next year (obviously not a BMW...) - aiming for July or Aug to make sure all the passes are open this time. I have 14 on my itinerary at the moment, but you gave me a few more passes to consider adding.

PS - I need to move to Germany so I can join trips like this!

Whenever you go to the Grossglockner, you have to visit the local brewery. Turned out though that the Thursday was a Bank Holiday and they were closed. However, the owner recognised me from previous visits and let me purchase some beer









The final pass of the tour was a small scenic / toll road, the Rossfeldpanorastrasse.









And now it was a quick blast on the autobahn to the hotel. Autobahn was fairly quiet so was able to hit 170MPH.

Hotel for the night? The v8 hotel in Stuttgart.











Here, if you choose, you can purchase any number of exotic cars.




































Food and beer.

Ok, so I'm back from my road trip.

Started Monday morning 0530

Ended : Today Friday morning 0200

Total: 2573km.

Trip 1: my house in Bayern to slightly north of Hamburg to visit Stern Performance Parts to let them use my car to build a rear seat delete kit.

Trip 2: Stern Performance Parts to Blackfish Graphics in Münk to pick up some instagram stickers I got made for my car.

Trip 3: Blackfish Graphics to Kaiserslautern to visit some friends

Trip 4: Kaiserslautern to Adenau where my other friend lives, from there I would stay 2 days so we can hangout and drive our cars to the Nurburgring Nordschleife. I did 3 laps in my car one with Misha so stay tuned for his video!

Trip 5: Nürburg back to my home.

So, what happens when you buy crisps at the bottom of a mountain and then take them 2544 metres high up?

The Spulga Pass. The Swiss side is not my favourite, that is the Italian side which has tunnels and tighter hairpins.
